Follow Up Care a Top Priority
Although rehabilitation at home is more comfortable and less stressful than rehabilitation in a hospital or outpatient facility, we understand patients needing care may still have questions and concerns. Our staff will contact a referred patient within 24 hours of discharge from a hospital or care facility to schedule an appointment and make sure all their questions are answered.
Patient Education and Empowerment
Penn Care at Home nurses and therapists give patients and their caregivers the tools they need to perform rehabilitative procedures correctly, provide proper care, and make appropriate lifestyle changes. This allows patients to speed their recovery and regain independence as their condition improves.
In addition, our home care experts will educate patients on their medications and monitor their adherence to ensure that proper measures are being taken. This individualized attention to the plan of care will help increase medication compliance and can also result in fewer hospital and emergency room visits. Our team partners with the patient and his/her doctor to make sure the plan of care is efficiently implemented, expediting patient recovery and ensuring safety.
