Our Care Transitions Program: RightTransitions® Can Help
When a loved one is discharged from the hospital, the effects of their condition aren't necessarily gone. This often makes adjusting to daily life difficult, especially for seniors, which increases the risk of re-admission. Right at Home's RightTransitions® program can help make transitioning from a healthcare facility to home easier on the patient by providing the following in-home senior care services:
► Communication with family and healthcare providers. We speak with the doctors and family to ensure everyone has the same information.
► Regular visits. Our caregivers can check in on your family member to know that you’re doing well and getting better.
► Medication reminders. A main cause of slower recovery is improper use of medications. We can help make sure they’re taking what is needed.
► Transportation to doctor appointments. Regular doctor visits are important to most people’s recovery. If you aren’t able to drive yourself, those appointments can be hard to keep. We can get them where they need to go.
► Meal preparation. Eating nutritious meals is the foundation of health. We can fix meals for any diet – even for special dietary requirements such as diabetes or congestive heart failure.
► Housework. Your loved-one needs to focus on recovery. Our caregivers can help by taking care of typical daily chores, such as vacuuming, washing dishes and cleaning the bathroom.
