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 Lancaster / Chester Counties 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.

"I can’t say enough good things about Right at Home. My blind, wheelchair bound father found himself in the hospital without even the ability to get himself a sip of water. The Right at Home caregivers were there for him, helping with the little things and advocating on his behalf with the big things. A home health aide rode back with him and stayed with him at home while he recovered. I highly recommend this home care service."

"It is my pleasure to write to you about Diane, our home health aide. As the wife of her client, I am so relieved to know that my husband is in her kind hands when I leave for work. Diane is just the right amount of 'doing' without taking over our home. She lets Mike 'lead' what he wants/needs to do on each of her visits and helps him wholeheartedly. Diane is thoughtful as she carefully watches over Mike. She encourages him while he completes his assigned exercises."

"Our caregiver, Jenny is wonderful for my 94 yr old mother. Jenny is cheerful, kind, efficient, concerned, and encourages my mother to join in daily activity. Jenny communicates with me making good suggestions for improvement (shower chair). I believe Jenny has enhanced my mother's health, safety, and happiness. Thank you for this peace of mind - I live 500+ miles away."
