Hospital to Home Transitional Program

Transition from one location to another can be a daunting task.  Transitioning from a hospital or skilled care facility, back home is definitely not easy.  Many times lack of communication among healthcare providers leads to gaps in care and unwanted re-hospitalizations.

Our Transitional Care Program ensures safe home transition and minimizes the errors in communication. We are skilled to make the transition process as smooth as possible.

At the Facility: 

  • Our Care Coordinators will visit the client at the skilled care facility or hospital, meet all appropriate staff, discuss care needs, collect all required facility discharge documentation, and create a complete plan of care ready to set in motion once the patient is safe at home. 
  • Depending on the needs Care Coordinators will work with the discharge planners and social workers to arrange for medical home health services at home or non-medical assistance.
  • Our Care Coordinators will arrange for a client to meet with the caregiver at the facility prior to going home.
  • LifeCare can arrange for transportation from the facility, pick up medications and food prior to going home.

At Home: 

  • Our Care Coordinators will conduct a home safety assessment and will ensure that you have everything necessary to start your recovery at home. 
  • Clients can receive an Emergency Response System along with the LifeCare Connect concierge service and a complimentary RN follow up visit.
