Safe Landings

Have you or a loved one been hospitalized? If so, the risk of re-hospitalization is quite high. The Safe Landings program can help prevent re-hospitalization and promote the healing process. Our care managers can visit on a short term basis to help ensure your loved one understands and follows the doctor’s recommendations to manage health conditions. The care manager can assist in managing any changes in medications, ensuring your loved one has the correct prescriptions and is following the correct medication schedule. The care manager will monitor for signs of healing as well as symptoms of potential problems and will intervene before these symptoms become a crisis. The care manager can also address lifestyle changes, help create a safe home environment and will ensure your loved one has a follow up appointment with the doctor and attends the appointment within one week of hospital discharge to ensure his/her health is improving. These are all ways we can help your loved on a short term basis to manage his or her medical condition(s) effectively and get back to his/her baseline of health as soon as possible.
