Senior Health Care Transition Specialist
Change is hard for everyone. It can be especially difficult for the elderly. At Florida’s Choice Health Care, our mission is to provide transition assistance to make the changes as smooth as possible for the client, family, and healthcare providers. Whether the client is in need of care transitions to Home Healthcare, Rehabilitation/Skilled Nursing, Assisted Living, or Memory Care Facilities, Florida’s Choice Healthcare can assist you with making educated transition decisions with the focus of reducing the risk of hospital readmission by ensuring the client receives the care he or she needs.
Health care transition planning is vital to preventing an unnecessary hospitalization. Florida’s Choice Health Care can assist with creating and implementing a care transition plan tailored to the specific needs of the client.
Proper communication is often the stumbling block to effective continuation of patient care. Often the patient’s medical records are fragmented between various providers. Sometimes the patients and/or their families do not fully understand medication or other aftercare instructions, which could lead to detrimental drug interactions or failure to reconnect with the patients’ primary care physician.
A transition program will also include education for the patient and the family about the many options for long term care. Perhaps the services of a senior care facility might be beneficial, or a non-medical assistant may be critical in enabling the patient to return home. Nursing care and assurance of a support program can also be established. A personal transition guide will help connect all the dots of your loved one’s care.
End of life decisions can be particularly difficult. The patient and friends and family may need help understanding all the options. Hospice care is a viable solution for many. A care transition specialist can help determine if it is time for hospice care and will assist in coordinating all services needed to maintain the dignity of the patient.
When transitioning a senior, many pieces must be connected to assure proper care and prevent re-hospitalization.
