Primary developed their Hospital to Home Care program to meet the needs of individuals from the moment of discharge through those first crucial moments they are home. From making sure that prescriptions have been picked up or delivered, to checking the refrigerator for fresh food and helping the client with personal care needs. Hospital to Home program was designed to provide that little bit of extra help most of us need following a hospital stay.
A Primary Home Care staff member will meet the client at the hospital, assist them with their clothes and belongings and accompany them home. Once home, they can assist the client with;
- Dressing and personal care needs, and help them back into bed or a comfortable chair,
- Making sure traffic areas of the house are free from clutter, and put commonly used items ( TV remote, water, phone) within safe reach,
- Meal preparation and light housekeeping
- Errands, such as grocery shopping.
