£1m to help elderly recover in own home

AN extra £1m will be spent on reducing hospital admissions over the next year.

Thanks to the Department of Health Funding, Nottinghamshire County Council has allocated £1m to help pensioners recover better at home so they are not re-admitted to hospital so easily.

The money will be spent on a range of rehabilitation therapies, the use of specialist equipment or simply helping people regain their confidence and mobility following a fall.
