Right at Home Westchester Provides Hospital to Home Care Transitions Assistance for Seniors and Disabled Adults
Care Transitions Program: RightTransitions® Can Help
When your senior loved-one is discharged from the hospital, the effects of their condition aren't necessarily gone when once they return home. This often makes it difficult for seniors trying to adjust back to daily life, increasing the risk of re-admission. Right at Home's RightTransitions® program can help make that transition back to home easier by providing the following in-home senior care services:
- Care Management: Our Care Manager and Registered Nurse work directly with your doctor, social worker, and discharge planner to coordinate the proper care plan to allow for a safe discharge. The care plan is detailed and explained to each caregiver. Any changes in conditions are communicated immediately to allow our care team to intervene to reduce the chance of possible re-admissions to hospitals and rehabs.
- Regular visits: Our caregivers can check in on your family member to know that you’re doing well and getting better. Our caregivers are monitored and directed by the Registered Nurse and Care Managers.
- Medication reminders: A main cause of slower recovery is improper use of medications. We can help make sure they’re taking what they need, when they need it.
- 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.
