RightTransitions Improves Patient Outcomes

Our staff provides meal preparation for adequate nutrition and fluid intake, medication assistance so patients stay on their regimen, and assistance with exercises so patients stay on their home exercise programs. We provide transportation for errands and follow-up doctor's appointments as well as personal cares such as bathing and safe walking to prevent falls as someone recovers from illness or surgery. Care Transitions ensures a safe home environment for your patients for continued recovery and return to an optimal quality of life.

The most critical times in the care continuum are during transitions between levels of care. Using Right at Home's Care Transitions Program ensures safe discharges and helps to prevent relapses or disruptions in recovery that can result in re-admissions. Our Care Team will work with your discharge staff to coordinate the transition home, make sure discharge orders are followed and will report back on the progress of your patient so you can rest assured they are continuing on the road to recovery.
