Many hospital patients discharged return within 30 days for the same health condition. At Your Side works with clients, their families and the hospital to help reduce the risk of readmission by providing high-level, at-home care immediately following discharge.

Experienced At Your Side staff meet with the hospital discharge planner shortly before you or your loved one is discharged to help ensure a safe and successful transition home.

This includes all picking up prescribed medications, obtaining directions on how the medications are to be taken, as well as specific instructions on physical limitations and dietary recommendations, and when to schedule follow-up physician visits. 

Additional Services may include:

  • Daily personal care services
  • Daily wellness check-in calls
  • Monthly nurse/health care professional wellness visits
  • Emergency, quick-response, in-home visits

Common Conditions Requiring Extra Care:

  • Congestive heart failure
  • Pneumonia
  • Heart attack

We offer companion and personal care services, affordable pricing, and same-day service. When hospital discharge is imminent, call your local At Your Side office to learn how we can help with recovery at home and reduce the risk of another hospitalization.
