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.

"Before we contacted Companion Services of America we were concerned about the safety and welbeing of our loved ones. Now we are able to live our own lives more normally and we are considerably less stressed. My mother had a wonderful companion in Tess, and Arnor. Rodel developered a solid relationship with my stepfather, which was not easy! We are thankful to have had the help and support of Companion Serivces of America for 8 years."

"We have used other agencies in the past and none compare to Companion Care. Jamie the owner is always responsive and manages to pull rabbits out of a hat to solving problems. The caregiver team has been extraordinary in being proactive and thinking ahead of my mother, which is not easy to do. The team respects her and knows the rhythm of engaging and giving her space. The team is also qualified and vigilant to watch for medical signs that could be harmful. I recommend Jamie, Mary and our caregiver team with high marks!"
