Are You Ready To Come Home From The Hospital is a great tool and resource for anyone who wants to better understand the transition from hospital to home, said Maura Barillo, RN, Director of Nursing.
Palo Alto, CA (PRWEB) December 24, 2011
Home Care Assistance, North America’s leading provider of in-home senior care, is proud to announce the launch of their informational website Are You Ready To Come Home From The Hospital, a guide to the post-hospitalization process for patients and their families. Inspired by conversations with clients who have transitioned from a hospital setting back into their own homes, the hands-on informational guide was created after Home Care Assistance witnessed a significant number of clients becoming overwhelmed by the transition from hospital to home.
"Home Care Assistance wants to serve not only as the nation's premiere home care provider, but also as a friend in the community, educating people about home care,” said Maura Barillaro, RN, Director of Nursing, Home Care Assistance. "Are You Ready To Come Home From The Hospital is a great tool and resource for anyone who wants to better understand the transition from hospital to home."
Are You Ready To Come Home From The Hospital features in-depth informational sections that offer guidelines for each phase of the transition process. From preparing a home setting for patient needs to scheduling a daily routine, the site offers a comprehensive step-by-step guide from the hospital discharge process into the recovery phase.
Each section was developed based upon conversations and information from local geriatric care experts, medical professionals and care managers, whose expert advice is supplemented with a resource-filled bibliography.
Home Care Assistance also took the unprecedented step of offering customized information for specific and common conditions. In consultation with experts, the company assembled patient guides based around common hospitalizations - stroke, fracture, pneumonia and congestive heart failure - which are free for download as PDFs from the informational site. These guides feature important advice for older patients who may need extra support as they move from hospital to home.
The company hopes this informational effort will assist both individual patients in making their care decisions while also tackling the growing problem of hospital readmissions, a costly dilemma for many hospital systems across the country.
With Are You Ready To Come Home From The Hospital, Home Care Assistance seeks to serve not only as the nation's premiere home care agency, but also as an educational resource for healthy decision-making.
