Assisting Patients in Retirement and Assisted-Living Facilities
Abington Hospital – Jefferson Health Home Care offers residents of retirement homes and assisted-living facilities the same array of services provided to all their patients. Home Care nurses collaborate with facilities managers in providing medical and therapeutic support to enable residents to function independently for as long as possible.
Home Care's staff of health care professionals consults with case managers to provide a safe transition from hospital to home. They develop a treatment plan combining optimum care at a fee agreed upon by the payer and Abington Home Care. Cross-functional teams of nursing and therapy specialists keep payers up-to-date on their patients' conditions and advise on care options as needs change.
