care transitions

consulting about transitions

Michelle is available to consult and assess the “Next Steps” when leaving the hospital, rehab, or skilled nursing facility. This service identifies the safest solutions for transitioning home. Proper planning is essential, such as outlining equipment needs or supplemental community services to help with activities of daily living.

In the hospital environment, discharge planning starts the day of admission and is often dictated by insurance coverage. Michelle can assist by completing an evaluation of the environment where the person is to be discharged and assist in preparing it for proper safety criteria and opportunities for independence. This will lessen the burden on loved ones and also decrease the likelihood of stressful relocations.
