(If you are not the patient reading this, pretend you are.)
Imagine you are being discharged from a health care facility, nursing home, rehabilitation center or hospital. Perhaps you have had hip or knee replacement surgery, pneumonia or a fall. Every person’s situation is different, but the bottom line is you need help in order to go home.
Understandably you will feel anxious about what will transpire once you return home. Remember, YOU and your caregivers hold the key to choosing the right home healthcare service for you.
You will need help now that you may have been out of your home for an extended time. Before being discharged, the facility discharge planner, social worker or case manager will arrange a meeting with you, your family and a Care Solutions professional to establish an individualized care plan. Your true healing can now begin knowing you will not be alone.
Once you’ve requested Home Care Solutions as your home health care provider, we can send a liaison to your hospital, place of rehabilitation or home to access your needs.
The day after you are discharged, you will receive a telephone call from one of our skilled nurses or physical therapists introducing themselves and scheduling your visit for that day. As your home health care provider, it is our responsibility to put your concerns to rest and help you attain your maximum level of independence.
A plan of care is created just for you and your personal needs. That plan evolves and changes as you make progress.
We work as a close-knit team, continuously evaluating, discussing and coordinating patient care.
Remember, if your plans for a loved one need to be made from a distance, we will provide everything necessary to ensure their safe move home and the continuity of care to give you peace of mind.
We earn your trust and confidence. We do not take it for granted!
