One-Time Hospital-to-Home Care Services
Hospital discharge is a challenging experience for families. New routines, regiments, and dangers can be overwhelming for those undergoing it for the first time. Thankfully, our team members are specialists in safely supervising clients on the next step of their healing journey.
When your loved one begins a transition of care, our team will meet with medical personnel, review discharge plans, pick up prescriptions, and get your loved one home safely. Caregivers will then review the discharge plan with your family, clarifying any inquiries you may have.
Hospital-to-Home service includes:
- An experienced, reliable caregiver who meets your loved one in the hospital room or discharge area

- Help understanding and following discharge plans

Short-Term Care Services
Continuing to monitor care after release from a hospital or other medical facility is vital for a full recovery. ComForCare’s short-term care services help people that require extra supervision and aid after a hospital stay adjust to new routines, including around-the-clock care if needed.
Working with families, we ensure adherence to the discharge plan or other medical directions while keeping a loved one comfortable. In-home care decreases anxiety and helps clients recover faster, reducing or eliminating the need for a re-admission.
Long-Term Care Services
We understand that a lengthy hospital stay often affects an individual’s ability to perform daily activities during recovery. For example, hip surgery can have a person off their feet for weeks and increases the risk of re-injury and re-hospitalization. ComForCare (Lakewood, CO) knows that being in a familiar and comforting environment can help speed the recovery process when facing a long and potentially painful rehabilitation period. That is why we have developed a transition of care model that monitors and updates care plans as conditions change, adapting to our clients’ recovery process.
Whether your loved one needs assistance only a few hours a week or around-the-clock, our team is happy to help! Call (303) 232-4473 to learn more about the transition care services offered through ComForCare Home Care (Lakewood, CO).
