Transitional Care: Home Health Care & Nursing Services - ComForCare - image-callout-transition-care

What Is Transitional Care?

Transitional care is when someone moves from one care setting – such as a hospital, skilled nursing facility, rehabilitation center or even their home – to another. Unfortunately, these transitions don’t always go smoothly and a person can be readmitted to the hospital.

Transitional care services from ComForCare Home Care are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week - including holidays. Services vary by location.

  • "Patricia has been great with my 93 year old mother!"
    She's creative and just seems to know what my mother needs and wants. She's a great aid to me knowing doctors visits, prescription pick-up and grocery runs are all taken care of - big load off my mind and schedule.
  • "The owners and nurse are fantastic!"
    Always willing to take calls from my Mom and explain things in a way she and I can understand. Also walked us through the insurance process. That was not easy and their expertise was greatly appreciated.
  • "ComForCare has given me peace of mind!"
    The fact that ComForCare was able to step in with certified dementia care specialists and begin caring for my father has been fantastic. The staff and caregivers are both sympathetic and empathetic and I feel it has helped my father during this difficult time. It has also given me peace of mind since I live a long distance from my father, and the communication from staff and caregivers is reassuring.
