Welcome to Hospital to Home Care
One of the leading causes of hospital readmission or slow post-hospitalization recovery is the lack of proper support following a hospital discharge. Whether you are transitioning directly home after a hospitalization or moving through the care continuum via a rehabilitation or medical care facility, in-home care is a key resource for a safe and successful recovery process.
At Home Care Assistance, we are committed to the wellbeing and safety of the clients we are privileged to serve. Many of our clients come to us following a hospitalization. They are referred to us by physicians, discharge planners, social workers and case managers; health and wellness professionals know that the transition from hospital to home can be a challenging one for patients and their families. One of the leading causes of hospital readmission or slow post-hospitalization recovery is the lack of proper support immediately following a hospital discharge. As the leading experts in post-hospitalization care, we developed this guide to provide an overview of the challenges and resources associated with each step in the transition from hospital to home. The guide will first describe what the discharge process entails and the key players involved. Next, it will provide a step-by-step summary on ensuring optimal care post-hospitalization. The transition out of the security of the hospital setting may seem daunting at first, but remember that you are not alone in this process. There is a team of individuals inside the hospital and in the greater care community to ensure that all of your needs are met. We hope our From Hospital to Home Care guide will equip you with the information you need to make the best decisions possible.
