Why use Transitional Care Services?
All to often there is not a smooth transition to home and the Care Recipient looses much of what they gained in their recovery and in many cases are readmitted. Getting things on track in a very smooth transition from the facility to home is critical in the process of dramatically increasing the chances of a better and faster recovery.
Transitional Care Service will not only help make for a smooth transition to home but will contribute to reducing adverse events, unnecessary return visits to the hospital and provide the needed knowledge to personally manage their own self-directed care.
