Leonard James Turford, aged 96, lived at home in Mount Pleasant Road, Harlescott, Shrewsbury, with the assistance of carers and family, an inquest heard.
Mr Turford, who was a retired tool worker, was admitted to Royal Shrewsbury Hospital on separate occasions in June, July and September of this year, and on his September visit, a CT scan found he had sustained a subdural haematoma. He was too frail to undergo surgery and died on September 29.
His family had no issues they wished the coroner to investigate, so a fast-track inquest into Mr Turford's death took place at Shirehall.
John Ellery, senior coroner for Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin recorded a conclusion of accidental death.
