Mrs C – Crumlin

Health Caseworker visited Mrs C as part of the Hospital to Home Pilot Project.  There was no central heating at the property the only form of heating consisted of a gas fire to the ground floor living room and a portable electric heater to the bathroom and main bedroom.  Client suffered Pneumonia which turned to Pleurisy last winter.  Caseworker arranged for new electric wiring and fuse box to be updated. A NEST grant was applied for and a new central heating system and radiators have been installed throughout the property.  Client is now confident that she will be safe, warm and comfortable in her home this winter.

Mrs B – Rhymney

Health Caseworker visited Mrs B as part of the Hospital to Home Pilot Project.  Caseworker carried out a Healthy Homes check and discovered that the heating system at the property was old and had broken down in the past.  There was a partial grant available from clients’ energy supplier but client was struggling to pay her share of the cost which was £1150.  The Health Caseworker applied to CRC for a HealthThrough Warmth grant for £750 so that work could commence to replace the old back boiler.   A referral was also made to Social Services to help client with bathing as she was struggling to get in and out of the bath.  Client has been awarded a bath lift and now feels much safer, warmer and independent in her home.
