A specialized program to build confidence and reduce the anxiety associated with returning home after a hospital stay:
Patients and their families often face an anxious journey when returning home after an extended hospital stay – whether in their home country or after receiving medical care overseas. Amana Healthcare’s Transitional Care program is designed to help patients and their families through this transition with a step-by-step approach that includes supervised homestays, home and workplace modification and training for family members and caregivers.
The objective of the program is to make the transition as smooth as possible by providing hands-on support to patients and their families and the peace of mind of ongoing medical, nursing and rehabilitation assistance as needed.
Continuity of care in the journey from hospital to home – supported by a dedicated team of experts who know each patient individually:
Each patient in Amana Healthcare’s Transitional Care program is supported by a case manager dedicated to making their transfer from hospital to home and work life as smooth as possible. Patients receive support from the entire Amana team – including doctors, nurses, physiotherapists, occupational therapists and specialists in assistive communication – to make sure that home and work environments are ready for the patient and caregivers and family members are confident, trained and prepared.
Amana’s Transitional Care program also accepts patients returning to their home country after a period of medical care or rehabilitation overseas.
Medical and rehabilitation excellence and each step of the process
Amana Healthcare’s world-class medical, nursing and rehabilitation experts work closely with case managers, social workers and family members to ensure that each patient receives individualized attention at each stage of the transition process.
The same staff also remain engaged with the patient and family once he or she returns home, either through periodic follow-up visits or through enrolment in Amana Healthcare’s Home Care program.
Amana Healthcare’s transitional care provides patients and their families with:
- Hands-on training of family members and caregivers using the latest international standards
- Support for modification of the home or work environment
- Supervised home visits – to get patients and their families comfortable and confident before a full return home
