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 Morris / Union 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.
