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 Merrillville 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.

"Just wanted to get a quick note off to you to let you know how outstanding Roxanna, Christine and Barbara are in their care of Mom and me. Mom feels comfortable with these three extraordinary women. They go above and beyond and we feel so fortunate to have them working with us. Right at Home did an excellent job of giving us the best! Roxanna was so helpful and wonderful on Monday, not only did she go to the grocery for me, she came home and cooked a fabulous dinner. Barbara is wonderful with Mom especially on shower days. Mom feels very comfortable with her and a strong connection since Barbara is also a Cubs fan! She is also a fabulous cook and makes Mom's favorite dishes. Christine gets Mom up and moving and also has cooked delicious meals. Thanks to these great ladies, Mom and I are eating healthy. Thank you. I have and will recommend Right At Home to friends and relatives."

"I would tell a friend that the caregivers from Right at Home are reliable, come on time, and leave when I ask. I am 85 years old and am on oxygen 24/7. I have to do a lot of exercises because I hurt. I am pleased with the way that Right at Home performs their services."

"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."
