Hospital to Home and Transitions of Care in Myrtle Beach, SC
From one time, to short term or long term care in the Myrtle Beach Area
We are a Nationally Certified Transitions of Care provider serving Horry and Georgetown Counties, and the entire Myrtle Beach area.
One Time Care: Hospitals sometimes discharge patients giving them no choice and sometimes little notice, leaving families to scramble to solve immediate needs like transportation home and transitioning into a new routine. If you live in another town, or in the case of an emergency where there was no time to plan, we can help out at short notice and communicate to family members with updates.
Our Transition of Care service help loved ones and their families by providing:
- An experienced, reliable caregiver who coordinates with discharge personnel
- Meets your loved one in their hospital room or discharge area
- Transportation home with stops for picking up prescriptions or groceries
- Meal preparation, light housekeeping, and laundry
- Debriefing phone call(s) to the family
Continued Care Plans
Short Term Care: Hospitalization generally occurs due to a medical event, condition diagnosis, or injury. In many cases, the reason for the hospitalization is something that affects the individual’s ability to perform regular daily activities of living for a short period of time through recovery.
For older adults and others recovering form illness or injury, continuing to monitor care is key to ensuring full recovery, and re-hospitalization. ComForCare can provide one-time care services or continued care plans. Care plans include a nurse’s evaluation of needs, a personalized schedule and routine based on the evaluation, including fall prevention and home safety checks.
Long Term Care: In some cases, the condition or injury affects physical or cognitive ability in a progressive or permanent way. When these situations occur, ComForCare will develop a continued care plan to help meet your loved one’s needs on a continual basis in the Pawleys Island, Conway, Little River, and Myrtle Beach areas.
Around the Clock Care
If seniors or other persons require supervision and assistance 24 hours a day following hospital discharge, we are happy to help. This is often the case when injuries or illnesses affect mobility or when strong medication impairs cognitive functions.
This may also be beneficial on a long-term basis for seniors and persons with advanced dementia or debilitating conditions that affect physical abilities. This allows your loved one to stay in the comfort of their home while receiving the care they need.
Our team will work with you regarding Transitions of Care from short term to long term, and to determine whether continual 24-hour care would benefit your loved one.
Whether your loved one needs assistance only a few hours a week or around-the-clock, our team is happy to help! Call (843) 444-2483 to learn more about the transition care services offered through ComForCare Home Care (Myrtle Beach, SC).
