Successful Transitions® – First Day Home
Successful Transitions® – First Day Home is a service from Home & Health designed to help prevent hospital readmissions. Studies show that patients who do not follow up with their doctor after a hospital stay are 10 times more likely to be readmitted. We are committed to helping seniors take a proactive approach to their health and reducing the likelihood they need to return to the hospital.
Home & Health Services offers senior transportation options that are easy and convenient. While transportation is not specifically in-home care, we know that it plays a vital role in your health, as does medication assistance and blood pressure monitoring. Easy access to transportation keeps you connected to the community, allowing you the freedom and independence to do the things you want to do.
Taking medication as directed by your doctor impacts your health. And if you take multiple medications, taking the right dose at the right time can feel overwhelming. Home & Health Services staff can remind you to take your medication, call in your refills and contact your doctor when you are out of refills. Home & Health Services also offers MedSmart, a countertop electronic reminder and dispensing system designed to help you take medications in the right dose at the right time.
Home & Health caregivers are specially trained to be aware of, and sensitive to, the needs of clients with dementia, Parkinson’s, diabetes and depression. Staff receives eight hours of training upon hiring in addition to in-home training for the specific needs of each client. After this initial training, staff receive an additional two hours of training annually to stay current with new ideas and philosophies.
