Transitioning From Rehabilitation/Hospital
The Journey Home
Recovery in the hospital or rehabilitation facility can be a difficult process. Anticipation of returning home can cause anxiety and stress because it’s hard to know what to expect. It’s not unusual to feel disappointment or frustration knowing that it will take time to return to one’s normal routine. The realization that help will be needed when they return home causes even more negative feeling especially for those who have been living independently until this point.
With the help of the facilities discharge staff, getting the needed help when returning home can relieve the stress associated with the transition. Providing a safer and more comfortable environment helps our loved ones and their families feel less burdened.
Our professional staff can assist with these plans. We will come out to the hospital or rehabilitation facility and start to assist with the necessary preparations. Companion Services of America works with the facility care team (PT, social work staff, nursing) to develop a plan of care for when you return home. This includes a home safety analysis and suggesting possible necessary equipment. If the client will be returning home with PT, our caregiver will train with the client and PT staff so that they may assist with exercises at home.
At Companion Services of America, we are here to ease the burden and improve the quality of life for our clients and their families.

We have been clients of Companion Services of America for about two years now. Before we called the staff at CSA we were overwhelmed trying to care for an elderly parent. The entire team was great, and very responsive to our needs. The caregivers were excellent!

My mother has been a client of Companion Services of America for about Two and a half years. Before we made the call to CSA we had a revolving door of unreliable caregivers for her. Now we feel my mom has capable and dependable care. Her caregiver is upbeat, reliable, honest, and competent. She is aware of my mom's medical and our family's needs.
