When you choose transition of care services through ComForCare, you can rest easy knowing that your family will receive the highest level of care and support from our trained and compassionate caregivers.
One-Time Hospital-to-Home Care Services
Hospital discharge is a challenging time for families. New routines, regiments, and risks can be overwhelming for those who experience it for the first time. Thankfully, our staff members are experts in safely guiding 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 procedures, pick up prescriptions, and safely get your loved one home. Caregivers will then review the discharge plan with your family, answering any questions you may have.
Hospital-to-Home service includes:
- An experienced, reliable caregiver who meets your loved one in the hospital room or discharge area
- Transportation home with stops for picking up prescriptions or groceries
- Help understanding and following discharge plans
- A debriefing phone call to the family (or doctor or health coach)
- Scheduling and attending follow up appointments
- Meal preparation
- Light housekeeping and laundry
- Identify trip hazards and make home safety recommendations
- Educate the client and family members on red flags or warning signs for chronic conditions
- Bathing, grooming, and personal hygiene
Short-Term Care Services
Continuing to monitor care after release from a hospital or other medical facility is crucial for a full recovery. ComForCare (Tri-County Cincinnati, OH) is there to help persons who require extra supervision and assistance after a hospital stay, including around-the-clock care if needed.
Working with families, we ensure adherence to the discharge plan or other medical instructions while keeping a loved one comfortable. In-home care reduces 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 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.
We Work With Veteran's Affairs and Accept Medicaid
We know that the high cost associated with in-home care can be a barrier for families with seniors in need. For this reason, we work with Veteran's Affairs and provide Medicaid waivers so that Cincinnati residents have access to the vital care they need and deserve.
Whether your loved one needs assistance only a few hours a week or around-the-clock, our team is happy to help! Call (513) 777-4860 to learn more about the transition care services offered through ComForCare Home Care (Tri-County Cincinnati, OH).
