Transition from Hospital to Care at Home

After going through surgery or prolonged hospitalisation, being home is a good place to heal physically and emotionally. Transition Care lets individuals get the right care they need to recover, meaning they can get home sooner and be in a more comfortable environment.

Depending on the needs of the client, Transition care can include allied health services like physiotherapy, occupational therapy, massage therapy, wound care, dementia support, nursing services, personal care, and domestic care, among others. Gratitude In-Home care provides all the transition care services to that any client may need to recover from a hospital stay and regain full independence sooner. Sometimes once clients recover, they continue to encounter challenges around the house or have difficulty with daily activities, if that is the case, we can continue to provide services after the transition care period.

There are many potential setbacks that can lead to readmission back to the hospital, ranging from mistakes made in taking medications, missing follow-up medical appointments, wound care to poor nutrition, dehydration, or lack of safety preparation at home, which transition care services can assist with to prevent setbacks.

Gratitude in-home care can provide any transitions from hospital to in-home care for home care package holders and self-funded individuals. As well as providing allied health services, nursing, personal care, assistance with daily living services, we can organise also any home modifications and mobility equipment to get clients to get back to independent living as soon as possible.

Gratitude In-Home Care offers a free safety Assessment of the entire home and can organise for any modifications to be done, cleaning and decluttering. GIHC can also help with making sure the correct medication is taken every day and night, as well as providing around the clock care if needed.
