Hospital to Home

After a stay at the hospital or other care facility, there’s nothing like returning to the comfort of home. A discharge from the hospital can seem like a welcome end to an injury or illness. But the transition to living at home can be daunting. It’s difficult to manage appointments, medications, and the routines of daily living such as grocery shopping and housework when all you want to do is rest and recuperate. That’s why we developed our RightTransitions® program.

Right at Home Northern Kentucky can help seniors and adults with disabilities get home safely and prevent further hospitalizations with regular visits by our trained caregivers. We’re here to make living at home easier, so you can save your energy for recovery.

"You have all done a simply marvelous job helping my mom. Details of her medical appointment yesterday are below. Our family are very grateful to you!" [I was delighted to go to your mother’s cardiology appointment with her on behalf of CareLink this morning to see Dr. George. I arrived at the same time as Jane along with her aide Kristen. During our time in the waiting area, Kristen brought along snacks and fed Jane peach yogurt. Jane had a nice appetite. Kristen was very attentive to her and had her sitting up nice and straight in her wheelchair. She gave the Nursing Home nurse's notes to the office nurse. - Cardiology Nurse]"

"First, I would like to thank your agency and especially Justin for helping us out in our time of need with such short notice. Justin was wonderful and made things move much smoother than they would have without him, he was able to talk to Don and keep him calm, and was great help when the ambulance and police came. If he was not there I think things would not have gone smoothly at all. Justin went above his duty coming in to help even though he had just worked a shift and he initially said he could only stay until 8, but rearranged his schedule so he could stay longer so we could get Don to the hospital without incident. So, thank him for us. Right now, Don is in the hospital today and the plan is to have him discharged to assisted living for a little while. We will be in contact soon when things get settled in, to possibly do some caregiver visits so Don can do his running or other activities."

"Right at Home makes sure that the job gets done. The services from Right at Home make it easier on the family because there is someone else to depend on. Without Right at Home, it would be up to us to do everything that my mom needs."

"I had a wonderful visit with your mother today, she was in terrific spirits, she was entertaining several of her friends, residents, and staff members in the great room. Marna was her caregiver today, she is always so good with Jane by keeping her engaged with others, reminiscing, etc.. Jane was talking about Joe getting remarried and telling us about her wedding. Many here tell me how much they like her caregiver and how well she works with your mother. I will let Valorie know. Jane has been talkative all day, she was beaming, smiling, telling jokes."
