Right Transitions: Hospital Discharge Programs

When you get the call that Mom or Dad is being discharged, Right at Home has a number of Hospital-to-Home programs to help. Our RightTransitions® programs are developed for your family's particular needs, and may include:

  • Pre-discharge hospital consultation with a Care Planner
  • Understanding your hospital discharge recommendations
  • Transportation from hospital to home
  • Setting you up at home: grocery shop, errands, meal preparation, equipment
  • Medication pick-up
  • Nursing visits
  • Personal care and assistance
  • Medication review
  • Nurse Care Manager communication between the hospital, specialists, pharmacy, family physician and family members.
  • Ongoing support and care

Other agencies cannot compare to Right at Home Canada's service. When I use Right at Home to place a caregiver into someone's home, I know they not only come to do their job, they also build relationships. Their intake process is in-depth in order to help place staff that will fit the patients' needs. I think this is the cornerstone of so many happy patients. They have a genuine interest and passion for the elderly.
