From Hospital to Home Care will take away so much of the uncertainty related to the hospital discharge process, said Sarafan.
Palo Alto, CA (PRWEB) February 02, 2012
Home Care Assistance, North America’s leading provider of in-home care, is excited to announce "From Hospital to Home Care: A Step by Step Guide to Providing Care to Patients Post Hospitalization," the latest book in its senior health and wellness series. The book is the centerpiece of Home Care Assistance’s innovative Hospital to Home Care Program. Hospital to Home Care is a long-term partnership between Home Care Assistance and leading medical institutions to reduce avoidable hospital readmissions through consumer education on post-hospitalization care.
“The post-hospitalization transition can be a source of tremendous anxiety for patients and their families,” said Lily Sarafan, co-author and President of Home Care Assistance. “Patients need to adjust to the recovery process while families are often thrown into caregiving roles for the first step. Our goal is to provide families with the resources and information they need to ensure a high quality of care for the patient.”
From Hospital to Home Care provides a comprehensive overview of the discharge process and the challenges associated with every step in the transition from the hospital to the home. The book distills recommendations from experts and outcomes-based research in terms that are relatable and actionable for patients and their families.
“From Hospital to Home Care will take away so much of the uncertainty related to the hospital discharge process,” said Sarafan. “It is so important for families to know that they have options – continuing care, community organizations, professional caregivers and more. The resources are already in place for us to dramatically reduce hospital readmissions; the key is arming families with that knowledge.”
