You must be looking forward to returning home after staying in the hospital, going through surgery, or receiving treatment for health issues. We are just as excited as you are however, your current health conditions might make it difficult for you to care for yourself or move around at home. To address this concern, we recommend that you talk to our care coordinator about Home Safety Assessments.
Home Safety Assessments are essential in fostering a smooth recovery journey for patients. The care coordinator or nurse will visit your home to:
- Provide minor home modification recommendations
- Suggest changes like widening of doorway to make it more handicap-accessible
- Recommend ideal locations for the installation of safety railings such as in bathtubs and showers
