When going home from the hospital, people with new illnesses or worsening of their long-term conditions will have changes in their health care needs. These may include medications, treatment, and follow up care from health care providers in many settings. These changes can be confusing and challenging to handle without assistance.
Transitioning from Hospital to Home
A resident of McKinleyville, Joan has been a client of Care Transitions since her discharge from St. Joseph Hospital. She credits the program for her steady recovery.
|"It made a big difference to me going home. My coach came to see me in the hospital before I was discharged, then came to my home several times over a 3-week period. She made me feel safer when I went home. I knew she was always available if I had a question or concern, or needed her to explain something to me."
