High-Touch Program Supports Clients Transitioning from Hospital to Home
GILBERT, Ariz., Feb. 6, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — SYNERGY® HomeCare, the nation’s fastest growing home care franchise, an Entrepreneur 500 ranked enterprise and a Top 200 Franchise according to Franchise Business Review, today announced the launch of ConciergeCare, a new high-touch home care offering designed to ease the process of returning home post-discharge from a hospital, rehabilitation facility, skilled nursing facility, or specialty outpatient surgery center.
Offering highly personalized levels of care, ConciergeCare can begin as early as pre-discharge. Packages range from a few days of post-discharge support to an entire month or more of care. All care packages can be extended as needed, and optional add-on services are available.
According to Rich Paul, Chief Partnership Officer for SYNERGY HomeCare, the ConciergeCare program is designed to make the client’s home the most comfortable environment for recovery, while anticipating the myriad of personal needs clients may have as they progress through their healing journey.
“Home care plays a vital role within the care continuum and care circle, and that is especially true during the transition from hospital to home,” said Paul. “This is a critical juncture in the path to recovery, one that can support compliance with prescribed medications and interventions to reduce the likelihood of readmission to the hospital. Specially trained, compassionate SYNERGY HomeCare caregivers can enhance clients’ quality of life during healing and recovery, and ultimately ensure the best possible outcome for the long term.”
