RightTransitions with Right at Home

| RightTransitions

Planning for a medical procedure can be tricky because of all the usual obligations of everyday life. If a procedure is non-urgent but important to your quality of life, don’t put it off, you are not alone.  Right at Home's RightTransitions Program is here to assist you with post-hospital recovery at home which is also known as post-hospital discharge support.

Right at Home's RightTransitionsTM Program 

When you are discharged from the hospital, the effects of your condition aren't necessarily gone when you return home. This often makes it difficult when trying to adjust back to daily life. Most hospital readmissions are preventable with a little extra attention and care after you return home. That's exactly what Right at Home's RightTransitionsTM program offers. 

No matter the procedure, we provide services that allow you to get back on your feet and back to your life. Our non-medical care model includes services necessary to help patients transition safely out of a medical facility to their homes.  

Some of these services include:   

  • Coordinating communication between providers 
  • Frequent follow-ups with families and discharge planners 
  • Medication reminders
  • Transportation to doctor and allied-health appointments 
  • Preparing meals 
  • Running errands 
  • Keeping homes clean and safe 

We can also deliver medical care via our Nursing Services, which may include the following:

  • Medication set-up
  • Medication administration
  • IV related therapies and administration
  • Insulin injections
  • Wound care
  • Dressing changes
  • Catheter care
  • Ostomy/Colostomy Care
  • Tube feeding assistance
  • Palliative support

There are many reasons why transitional care and support is important to the health and safety of patients after discharge. Right at Home is here to help and to offer this support.
