Transitional Care for Your Loved One. Peace of Mind for You.
After a hospitalization or surgery, home care may be needed on a temporary or long term basis. ElderCare at Home regularly works with hospitals, assisted living, long term care facilities, rehabilitation centers and private care providers to coordinate safe and seamless transitions for their patients when they leave one setting to go to another.
We collaborate with all caregivers involved to manage multiple, complex medical conditions and ensure a smooth transition for the patient and their family.
We believe that thorough communication and coordination of care can potentially reduce preventable hospital re-admissions. Our Transition Anywhere™ home care program gives our patients and their families a high degree of satisfaction and confidence that their concerns have been appropriately considered in order to make a smooth and successful transition home.
