It’s time to go home from the hospital. You’re excited but nervous. How will you get to your follow up appointments, what about the cost of your medications, not to mention the home medical equipment you may need.
You’re not on your own. There is a team of people who will help you navigate the transition process and get your what you need to continue to recover at home. They are medical social workers – or as some may call them, your guardian angels.
Peninsula Home Care Medical Social Workers work closely with area hospitals to offer support to patients and family members with discharge planning, counseling, case management and referrals. They educate, advocate and connect patients with community resources to help them live successfully in their homes.
