Discharge from hospital, return home safely
Are you discharging an elderly parent from the hospital? The discharge and the transition back home can be much more involved than you may anticipate. Because a Registered Nurse will be overseeing your parent’s discharge, we can help make sure things go as smoothly as possible.

In an ideal world, all services would be in place and all details would have been sorted out prior to the client’s discharge from hospital and arrival home.

In reality, this seldom happens. It is not unusual, for example for clients to be discharged home from the hospital without their medication or new prescriptions, or without an exercise schedule, wheelchair etc.

We conduct a prescription review – comparing the list of medications at discharge with the list of medications they were taking before being hospitalized – when discharging clients from the hospital.

We also help to coordinate devices – hospital beds, wheelchairs, walkers, commodes etc. for the return home, so that everything is in place (assuming we are brought on early enough to help make these arrangements), on, or shortly after arriving home.

We take a holistic approach to your parent’s discharge from hospital

There are many factors that can make a significant difference to the well being of your parent when they return home, such as: maintaining a clean environment, proper nutrition, mental stimulus, socialization, exercise, monitoring changes in health status, communication between health professionals and family members, coordination of other services etc.

When you have help through Eldercare Home Health we help with all of these things, and more.

We help make returning home possible

My father would never have been able to return to his own home if it hadn’t been for Eldercare Home Health. They helped organize his discharge and worked with his Doctor and his pharmacist to sort out his medications. And, of course, they’ve been providing excellent in-home care.

~ Ms. Brenda Gross, Client’s daughter
