Planning and Managing the Transition from Hospital to Home Care
Navigating the health care system can be a difficult task and getting back home after a medical procedure, surgery or prolonged illness can be a challenging process. With mounds of paperwork, hospital discharge instructions, medication requirements and extensive list follow up instructions and appointments, getting back to normal often times requires some assistance.
At Homewatch CareGivers we work closely with clients and their families to develop a specially designed program to help with a safe discharge and help you manage the transition from hospital to home care.
Our hospital discharge services help to ensure that clients arrive safely at home after a hospital stay or rehabilitation program. We help clients slowly and confidently ease back into their daily routines as their health conditions improves and their physical ability allows.
Hospital discharge services can include securing and communicating discharge orders, transporting the client from the hospital and to follow up appointments, picking up any over the counter or prescription medications at the pharmacy, grocery shopping and errands, preparing and serving meals, genuine companionship and any level of personal care such as assistance with bathing, dressing, hygiene or mobility.
At times, more complex care is required for patients recovering from Traumatic Brain Injury, auto accidents or other unfortunate occurrences.
Our Post-Surgical & Hospital Discharge Services Include:
- After Rehabilitation
- Heart Surgery
- Joint Replacement
- Plastic Surgery
- Eye Surgery
- Dental Surgery
- Day Surgery
- Outpatient Surgery
