When a patient is discharged from the hospital, it can be a stressful and uncertain time. Many patients may still need ongoing medical care, but may not be ready to return to their normal daily activities or fully independent living. This is where home care can provide a valuable resource for both the patient and their loved ones.
Home care refers to a range of medical and non-medical services that are provided in the patient’s home, rather than in a hospital or long-term care facility. These services can include nursing care, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, and social work support, as well as assistance with activities of daily living such as bathing, dressing, and medication management.
There are many benefits to home care after hospital discharge, both for the patient and their family. Here are just a few:
Convenience and comfort: Receiving care in the familiar and comfortable surroundings of one’s own home can be much more pleasant than being in a hospital or care facility. This can help the patient feel more relaxed and at ease, which can in turn promote healing and recovery.
Greater control and autonomy: Home care allows patients to have more control over their care and treatment plan. They can choose when and how they receive care, and can involve their loved ones in decision-making. This can be especially important for those who value their independence and privacy.
Cost savings: Home care is often more cost-effective than hospital or long-term care facility care, particularly for those who require ongoing medical support.
Improved outcomes: Studies have shown that home care can lead to better health outcomes for patients, including reduced hospital readmission rates and improved quality of life. This is likely due to the personalized and continuous care provided by home care agencies, as well as the ability for patients to receive care in their own environment.
Support for caregivers: For many patients, the transition from hospital to home can be overwhelming and they may require additional support. Home care can provide much-needed relief for caregivers, who may be balancing work, family, and other responsibilities while also caring for their loved one.
CARE Resolutions, Inc. is a family owned and operated company that was founded in 1997 by Vicky Hunt resulting from the compassionate, moving experience of caring for her own mother.
There are a few different types of home care services available to patients after hospital discharge. These include:
Non-Medical home care: CARE Resolutions provides non-medical care like personal care, companionship, and homemaker services.
Skilled nursing care: This type of care is provided by licensed nurses who can administer medications, provide wound care, and monitor the patient’s overall health and progress.
Physical therapy: Physical therapists can help patients recover and regain strength and mobility after an illness or injury. This can include exercises to improve balance and coordination, as well as assistive devices such as crutches or walkers.
Occupational therapy: Occupational therapists can help patients with activities of daily living, such as bathing, dressing, and cooking. They may also provide adaptive equipment or recommend modifications to the home to make it more accessible.
Speech therapy: Speech therapists can help patients who have difficulty speaking or swallowing following an illness or injury. They can provide exercises to improve communication and swallowing skills, as well as recommend assistive devices such as augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) devices.
Social work support: Social workers can provide support and resources for patients and their families as they navigate the healthcare system and adjust to life after hospital discharge. They can help with financial assistance, transportation, and connecting patients to community resources.

Non-medical home care refers to a range of non-medical services that are provided to patients in their home, such as assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs), light housekeeping, and transportation. These services can be particularly helpful for patients as they transition from the hospital to home, as they may still be recovering from an illness or injury and may need additional support with tasks that they were previously able to handle on their own.
Here are a few ways in which non-medical home care can help patients transition from hospital to home:
Personal care: Non-medical home care providers can assist patients with ADLs such as bathing, dressing, and grooming. This can be especially helpful for those who are recovering from surgery or have mobility limitations.
Meal preparation and nutrition: Home care providers can prepare meals for patients and ensure that they are getting adequate nutrition. This can be especially important for those who have dietary restrictions or may be experiencing difficulty preparing meals on their own.
Light housekeeping: Home care providers can help with tasks such as laundry, cleaning, and organizing, which can be overwhelming for patients who are recovering from an illness or injury.
Transportation: Home care providers can provide transportation to appointments and errands, which can be especially helpful for those who are unable to drive or have limited mobility.
Companionship: Non-medical home care providers can provide companionship and socialization, which can be especially important for patients who are isolated or may be feeling lonely or anxious after hospital discharge.
In addition to the practical support provided by non-medical home care, these services can also help to reduce stress and improve the overall quality of life for patients as they transition back to home. They can provide a sense of security and peace of mind for both the patient and their loved ones, knowing that there is someone available to provide assistance and support as needed.
