Hospital Discharge, Post Discharge Care
Most people are pleased to hear that they are being discharged from the hospital or rehab center to complete their recovery at home. But few of those being discharged understand that a leading cause of hospital readmission is due to lack of proper support immediately following the discharge. As post-hospitalization experts we begin the discharge process by meeting you in the patient’s hospital room for a full care assessment prior to discharge. We coordinate with the hospital’s discharge planners, social workers and case managers to understand the hospital’s plan and to be sure that it works with the wishes of the patient and family. We also make sure that if any special equipment or training is required we will be ready. Most importantly, one of our Care Managers will be there to help insure everything goes smoothly and to plan.At HomeLife Partners we know how effective skilled caregiving support is to insuring a successful post-hospitalization recovery and how complex the discharge process can seem. So please call us with any questions or to schedule a complimentary in-hospital needs assessment.
“Dear HomeLife Partners,
“I want to thank you very much for helping my father and me through a transition period in his life. He certainly enjoyed being able to get out and about with the caregivers you provided. You provide a valuable service for families who cannot devote face time to a loved one. Please give my best to Jasmine & lucy they were great!”
