Post-Hospitalization Care

Returning home following a recent surgery or hospitalization often requires extra care. A smooth transition back into the home can help prevent hospital re-admittance and re-injury. 

We will be in close contact with you, your family members, power of attorney (if applicable), and your doctor to assist in a speedy recovery.

The care involved for post-hospitalization combines all of our other services but it also includes:
