A promotion at Addenbrookes and Hinchingbrooke hospital has led to a surge in the work being done by a Fen-based charity and a plea for more volunteers to help out.
Care Network Cambridgeshire is promoting its help at home service and is being funded with a short term Government initiative which helps people to return from hospital in a safe and timely manner.
Hilary Johnys, direct services manager for Care Network said: “It’s a wonderful opportunity to raise awareness of our services within the hospitals and more importantly to help people when they get home.
“This encourages confidence in people, that with practical support, they will be able to recover safely at home.”
“This is resulting in a need for more volunteers across Cambridgeshire.”
