Protection Of Your Property Whilst You Are In Hospital or Care

Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council provide a service for people who have no relatives or friends willing or able to look after their home and personal property during periods of admission to hospital or residential care.

As soon as the worker involved in your care is aware that your property needs protecting they will make arrangements for the building to be secured, which means taking reasonable steps such as locking doors and shutting windows.

Permission from you as the owner or tenant will be sought to enter the property, unless you are unable to give it due to reasons ill health, the Council can make an inventory of large items, securely store cash, benefit books etc, and make sure that any pets are properly taken care of.

For further information about this service, please contact the First Contact team on the telephone number below.
