You should tell the hospital nursing staff as soon as possible so that they know you will be homeless when you are discharged. They will ask the Hospital Discharge Team to help if they can. The Hospital Discharge team may refer you to Wolverhampton Housing Options, where they will assess your situation.
If you have a home already but it needs to be adapted, the hospital will refer you to Wolverhampton City Council Independent Living Services - Aids and Adaptations Services team who are responsible for adaptations or Disabled Facilities Grant.
