Hospital Transition to Home Care

DaNurse is dedicated to contributing to the well-being of our community, helping patients take charge of their health by providing traditional home care services, along with supporting preventative care through patient and public health education programmes. We are committed to the delivery of community-oriented, culturally sensitive, and affordable healthcare services for our patients and families.

We are RNs, RPNs, physical therapists, occupational therapists, and medical social workers. But above all, we’re caring, compassionate mothers, fathers, sons, and daughters. We understand how important it is for people to remain surrounded by family and the familiarity of home—which is why we deliver a complete range of in-home care that is always tailored to the needs of our patients.

What is Post-Hospital Home Care?

After a hospital discharge, you or your loved one will need to carefully follow all of the instructions from your healthcare provider.

  • If you have a question about your follow-up care, call to ask.
  • If you’re concerned about problems, make sure to call with questions. This can help prevent problems from getting worse.
  • Make sure to keep all of your follow-up appointments.
  • When you go to an appointment, be ready to tell your healthcare provider how you have been feeling.
  • Bring copies of any test results.
  • Ask questions about any part of your recovery or care.
  • You may have been given important instructions to follow, such as weighing yourself daily or doing certain exercises to speed your recovery.
  • Let family members, friends, and care professionals from DaNurse be a part of your recovery after discharge.
  • They will pick up medications or take you to appointments.
  • They will remember things that you forget about symptoms, problems, or questions you want to ask.
  • This will help you ensure a smoother recovery after discharge.

What to Expect from Post-Discharge Home Care

When you come home from the hospital, you might experience some fatigue and general tiredness. You may also notice that you might be feeling pain. This is very common and should not alarm you. It is simply your body’s way of kicking into its healing mode, which helps you to rest.

All your energy can then be saved for healing and recovery. It is very important that when you come home from the hospital, you and your family are aware of the extra help you might need.

If you come from a big family, you already know that well-meaning relatives want to help, but busy schedules often make that difficult.

Most loved ones would rather spend their time hanging out with you, rather than overseeing your medical needs. This is the perfect time to bring in a qualified caregiver from DaNurse who can free families up to just be a support system.

Whether you need help around the home or home health care staffing for an elderly relative, DaNurse has the experience, qualifications, and compassion needed to enjoy the best possible quality of life.

After Hospital Home Care Services

To help the patient have the easiest possible recovery, a caregiver will be assigned to the patient. Only the physician can help you decide whether or not extended care is needed around the clock.

One of the benefits of having a home caregiver is ensuring that the patient is comfortable, safe, and as pain-free as possible while in our care.

Having post discharge support is key to reducing recovery time and helping the patient return to normal life quickly. Post hospital or rehab support is the best way to ensure that your recovery time is quick and the healthiest option available.

Our mission is to reduce pain and suffering in homes across the Greater Toronto area. Find out more about us.

Now that you’re ready to get started, let’s chat about your senior care challenges. If you have questions, we have answers.

Top things to consider when choosing an in-home care provider:

Being Dependable and On-Time: Hiring an experienced in-home care agency is important. An experienced provider will be reliable but will also have a back-up plan when a caregiver is sick.

Read reviews of the home care agency to see if past clients have been happy. Ask the agency if they have a plan in place for when a caregiver isn’t able to make it to the scheduled visit.

Available Services: Be sure that you understand the home care services that will be provided.

Ask questions. Be your own (or your senior’s) advocate. Follow up after visits if you have questions. Find out what the agency recommends if they are unable to provide certain services.
