  • It can be very nerve-wracking when your senior loved one is admitted to a hospital or healthcare facility. And likely, the last thing you’ll be thinking about is what happens when the doctor discharges your loved one.

    But thinking about the returning home process right from the start is one of the best things you can do for your senior loved one. Discharge is a key point in the recovery process. Planning ahead and preparing for a safe return home can mean the difference between readmission and a full recovery. Many issues factor into why older adults are vulnerable to problems at home after they have been in a medical, hospice or rehabilitation setting. In this section we offer you a number of resources, guidelines and tools to help you make your senior’s transition home go smoothly and result in a successful recovery.
