    What Is Transitional Care?

    Transitional Care is a service designed to support patients in the crucial phase of moving from a nursing facility or hospital setting back to their home.

    At APEX Health Services, we specialize in assessing holistic medical and psychosocial needs. Our multidisciplinary team collaborates to enhance patient independence and overall well-being. Here’s how we bridge the gap between different care systems:

    • Home Health Checks: Regular assessments at home to monitor the patient's health and ensure their environment supports recovery.

    • Medication Access: Managing and facilitating access to necessary medications, ensuring proper understanding and adherence.

    • Further Referrals: Coordinating with other healthcare providers for additional care or specialized services as needed.

    The overall goal of Transitional Care is to promote recovery, prevent rehospitalization, and improve health outcomes by providing targeted, patient-centered care at home.

    What Are the Benefits of Transitional Home Care?

    Transitional home care offers numerous benefits for patients transitioning from a hospital or skilled nursing home setting to their home. These benefits are designed to ensure a smoother recovery, better health outcomes, and overall well-being.

    • Smooth Transition from Hospital to Home: Transitional care provides essential support during the critical period after hospital or facility discharge, helping patients adapt to being back in their home environment while still receiving necessary medical care.

    • Reduced Risk of Rehospitalization: By offering continued medical care and monitoring at home, transitional care can significantly reduce the chances of readmission to the hospital or nursing facility.

    • Proactive Health Monitoring: Regular health checks and monitoring can identify potential health issues early, allowing for timely interventions and adjustments in care plans.

    • Enhanced Communication with Healthcare Providers: Transitional care fosters improved communication between patients, their families, and their healthcare team, ensuring everyone is informed and involved in the care process.

    By focusing on these aspects, transitional home care not only aids in physical recovery but also supports the emotional and psychological well-being of patients, making it an invaluable component of post-hospitalization care.

    • Your team was great! My entire family believed that APEX, especially Mary, pulled miracles on Friday evening when my mom was admitted.  Somehow your team was able to get a hospital bed, oxygen, a shower chair, and medications within hours.  This is a truly amazing service.  My mom was a mess this weekend and we could not have managed her care without the APEX team.  Sweglo Family
