Smooth Hospital to Home Transition with VISIT Support
Our discharge-from-hospital service helps seniors transition smoothly from the hospital back to their homes.
We provide care, support and guidance to address any questions or issues you may have during this process.
Our goal is to ensure a safe discharge home and reduce the risk of hospital readmission.
Discharge from the hospital can be confusing, with many questions and issues to address.
Our service is designed to support you in returning home and following post-discharge from the hospital. We want to ensure you have a safe discharge home and reduce the risk of hospital re-admission.
Before being discharged, it's important to coordinate and plan things to ensure that your home is set up to meet your needs. This may include arranging for assistive technology, a key safe, follow-up physio, GP reviews, transportation, and ensuring that you have enough space for hospital equipment, mobility aids, food, and medication.
We can provide guidance on identifying and ordering equipment to help with independence at home, such as a raised toilet seat, bath chair, or grab bars.
Our goal is to ensure that you have a safe and smooth transition back home while maximizing your independence.
