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.

"Companion Services of America has helped me take care of my wife for over two months. I called Companion Services when I became overwhelmed with stress and worry over how to care for my wife. She had a broken back and long covid. I needed to keep her safe, secure and she needed help during the night. With the help of our wonderful caregivers, I am much less overwhelmed. I am much more confident that my wife is sleeping safely through the night. My wife's caregiver Maribel is energetic, talkative, safety conscious and always helpful with chores. Anna is strong, steady, and very safety conscious. She suggested the installation of a bed rail to simplify safe toileting and helped teach my wife how to use if with confidence. Both of her caregivers are prompt, pleasant and always helpful."

"My mother has used Companion Services of America's home care services for over four years now. Before we called them for help she was very anxious. Now she is comforted and happy with the socialization they provide. Her caregivers are amazing! They are patient and comfort my parents tremendously. The staff at CSA is wonderful. Occasionally we have schedule changes, or changes in our needs and the team is always very helpful!"

"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!"
