From Hospital to Home Care Guide

A 16-page guide outlining the entire hospital to home process including planning for discharge, managing the transition home and facilitating ongoing recovery at home. A hospital discharge can be a trying experience for patients and their families; our guide will answer common questions, explain key processes and help you consider your options when it comes to recovery at home.

What is Home Care Guide

A 20-page guide that explains what in-home care is and what it can mean for your loved one and your family. Whether you are considering home care after a recent hospitalization or exploring the concept for long-term lifestyle needs, home care can support your loved ones' desire to recover comfortably at home. With trained, experienced caregivers at home, your loved one can enjoy the benefits of a rehabilitation or assisted living setting within the comforts of home.

Agency Evaluation Checklist

If you are considering home care, our Agency Evaluation Checklist helps you make sure you ask the right questions and find the care provider that is perfect for you. The Checklist covers everything from the experience and training of the caregivers to the responsiveness of the care managers. Make sure you have this checklist in hand as you consider your home care options.

Discharge Planning Checklist

An excerpt from our broader Hospital to Home Care guide, the discharge planning checklist will help you make sure you and your family are prepared for the transition home. It is important to make sure you have the care you need at home and you can prevent avoidable hospital readmissions.

Hospital Readmission Checklist

One of the leading causes of hospital readmission or slow post-hospitalization recovery is the lack of proper support following a hospital discharge. This checklist is designed to help you evaluate the risk of rehospitalization and highlight the potential need for increased assistance during recovery.
