At Talem Home Care - Northern Virginia, we understand that any hospital trip can be an intimidating and confusing event for seniors and their families. It is normal for a patient or loved one of a patient to be so focused on medical treatments that frequently, not much thought is given to what happens once you leave the hospital.
Patients, family caregivers, and healthcare providers all play roles in maintaining their health after discharge from a hospital or rehab. And while they are all a significant part of the overall discharge care plan, many are surprised to find a lack of consistency in both the process and quality of discharge planning across the healthcare system. Navigating through today's health care system can be confusing or frustrating, particularly during times of transition. These transitions can change your physical location (e.g., hospital to home or rehab to home) or overall health. Our goal is to assist you through these times, so all you have to focus on is getting better.

I requested a nurse to come out and assess our situation. She was very wonderful. She gave me a lot of advice and answered all of my questions. I have been really impressed with them. This is my first experience having to go through this. They have provided a lot of support in all aspects including nursing and the office staff. .... I feel very lucky that they were given to us. They take a lot of time for us and are very understanding. They have been able to answer all of my questions. They always come to me about any questions I have. I want them to know that they are appreciated. It makes me feel less alone.
