Discharge Planning

caremanagementEnjoy independence in your home with hospital discharge planning

When you or a loved one is ready to return home after a stay at the hospital, it’s important to have a discharge plan. Discharge planning is a process used to decide what you need to return home and easily transition from one level of care to another. It’s usually a team effort, and a social worker, nurse, case manager or other professional will mostly likely help you plan through a team approach. Once you return home, remaining independent in your own home is important, which is why outfitting your home with the products you need for daily living is vital.

One of the central areas to think about is mobility. How will you enter, exit and move around your home once you return, especially if you have multiple levels? Making sure you have wheelchairs, walkers, braces, lift chairs, transport chairs, ramps and stair lifts is key to living independently.

Bathroom safety is another important concern when discharge planning. Bathrooms can be dangerous places, with wet, slippery surfaces that are solid. For someone with already limited mobility, simply showering can be a challenge. Luckily, Apex Home Care & Nutritional Center offers a bathroom safety product for every need, including grab bars and toilet safety rails for assisted movement to bath chairs for support.
