Transitioning from Hospital to Home

Have you or a loved one had a stay in the hospital? Here are some tips to make the transition home a little easier. Invest in some nightlights to help you see during the night and make sure all throw rugs are secured to the floor. Consider sleeping close to your main bathroom. Arrange for help with errands and caring for pets if needed. If you might have problems with mobility, look into purchasing a cane or renting a knee walker. Benches for the shower and raised toilet seats can help make the bathroom a little safer. Also, make sure you have some good pairs of no-slip socks. We hope these tips help you or your loved one’s recovery more comfortable and successful!
