The Welcome Basket: One Day Intensive Training


What is the Welcome Basket?

The Welcome Basket is a 6-week peer based program that supports clients with the transition from hospital to home. Peers meet with the client 1-2 times while in hospital, with upto 4 meetings in the community following discharge. During initial visits, the peer and client develop an individualized plan for i) welcome basket items (e.g. toiletries, house warming gifts), ii) organizing the home, and iii) identifying needs for the transition to the community.
