What is Hospital to Home Care?

Hospital to home health care involves the care of a patient in the home after being discharged from the hospital. A leading cause of hospital readmission or slow post-hospitalization recovery is the lack of proper care and support following a hospitalization. Hospital to home care can reduce this risk by providing patients with in-home recovery services after being hospitalized. Oftentimes, the hours following a hospital stay are a vulnerable and critical time for patients. Lifestyle changes, such as changes in daily habits, taking required medications, a changed meal regimen, and rehabilitation exercises can cause stress and confusion for those recently discharged from a hospital. Hospital to home health care allows patients to put their minds at ease by providing monitoring, reminders, companionship, and emotional support to help promote a successful recovery at home. A key benefit is having a trained specialist to provide post-hospitalization care, which allows loved ones to focus on spending more quality time with the patient instead of worrying about providing medical care.
