Welcome Home – Transitional Care Referral Program
ElderCare at Home, a licensed nurse registry, recognizes that the transition from the hospital or rehabilitation facility, back to home can be difficult. Family members want to make sure that the person they love has the extra help they need to make the transition as smooth as possible, and the patient often worries that they will be unable to manage on their own.
Welcome Home Transitional Care Referral Program is the answer!
Our Welcome Home Transitional Care Program, provided by one of our referred caregivers, is the answer!

Day of Discharge
A referred CNA/HHA or Comforting Companion will arrive at the hospital or rehabilitation center to help the patient get ready for the trip home. They can assist with personal care, dressing, ambulation, packing and provide transportation home. You and the referred caregiver will determine how the caregiver can be most helpful to you!
Transportation and Errands
Transportation home might include a stop at the grocery store or pharmacy. If the patient prefers, the CNA/HHA or companion can get the patient safely settled at home before running any errands on the patients behalf.
A hot, nutritious, home cooked meal is a welcome delight and can be prepared taking into consideration any new or existing dietary restrictions.
If the patient has been away for a while, the house may need some sprucing up! Dusting, vacuuming, damp mopping, doing the laundry and putting fresh linens on the bed, can be cheerfully done at the patients request. Arrangements can be made with the caregiver to complete these tasks before the patient arrives home if you prefer.
Durable Medical Equipment DME
Most likely the discharge planner took care of ordering any medical equipment the patient will need. If not, our office staff can assure that everything the doctor ordered is delivered quickly and set up efficiently.
Odds and Ends
Throwing out spoiled food, watering the plants, checking the mail – all those things you would do if you were there – can be taken care of in a loving and respectful way.
Private Duty Care
Through our vast network of independent contractor caregivers, ElderCare at Home, a licensed nurse registry, can facilitate comprehensive private duty home care services for those patients that will need some ongoing assistance during the recovery period. One of our geriatric care consultants or registered nurses (RN) are available to meet with the patient and help determine which services, if any, would be most appropriate.
Home Safety and Modifications
At the time the geriatric care consultant or registered nurse meets with the patient, a home safety evaluation can be completed and any recommended modifications will be discussed.
ElderCare at Home knows that the last thing a patient needs to worry about is how much this is going cost. A consultant can work with the patient and/or the family to assure that the patient only receives the services they need for only as long as they need it.
