Transitions of Care

A transition of care (TOC) is any transfer someone makes between a facility such as a hospital, a skilled nursing facility, an assisted living community or their home. It's important to continue monitoring care once released from a facility to help ensure a full recovery, especially for older adults.

At ComForCare Home Care, we have a variety of processes in place to help clients successfully transition home after a hospitalization or outpatient procedure. Our Transitions of Care Program can provide one-time care services or continued care plans, updating them as needed.
 
Hospital-to-Home Package
Hospitals often discharge patients with little notice, leaving families to scramble to solve immediate needs like transportation home and transitioning into a new routine. If you live out of town or responsibilities don’t allow you to transport your family member back home, ComForCare Home Care can help.
 
Our popular "Hospital-to-Home" package assists those who need a ride home and help getting settled in. This package includes:
  • An experienced, reliable personal support worker who meets your loved one in the hospital room or discharge area
  • Transportation home with stops for picking up prescriptions or groceries
  • Meal preparation
  • Light housekeeping and laundry
  • Bed-tuck service
  • A debriefing phone call to the family 
 
Continued Care Plans
For individuals who need continued monitored care after they are discharged, we can: 
  • Obtain and review hospital discharge instructions and incorporate these instructions into the client-specific care plan
  • Pick up prescriptions, provide medication reminders and help the client adhere to their prescribed regimen
  • Educate the client, caregivers and family members on “red flag” warning signs for chronic conditions
  • Assist clients with attending follow-up medical appointments
  • Communicate with the client’s discharge planner, health coach or other health care professionals and their family members
  • Assist with bathing, grooming and personal hygiene
  • Help with meal preparation, laundry and light housekeeping
  • Identify trip hazards and make home safety recommendations
  • Provide companionship
