Customizable Discharge Packages Available to Suit Your Needs

From scheduling doctor’s appointments to ensuring your home has everything you’ll need for a speedy recovery, prepping for a procedure can be overwhelming at any age. There’s no shame in asking for home care assistance. People recovering from surgery must follow post-op instructions to the letter to prevent infection, minimize pain, and aid them in the healing process. Not seeking assistance can put you more at risk for hospital readmission. Our caregivers make it possible to remain at home during your recovery by providing the support you need to remain healthy and resume your daily routine. At SmithLife Homecare, we believe in supporting our clients so they can make life transitions on their own terms. Our flexible short-, long-term, and discharge service packages include:

  • Home & Settled – This package includes five hours of in-home care with a CNA, which may include transportation to your home and picking up medications from your local pharmacy.
  • Transition to Home – Our popular Transition to Home package is perfect for clients having knee or hip replacements. It includes 18 hours of home care assistance with a CNA, which may include transportation to your home and six hours of in-home care for the first three days.
  • Longer Care Assistance – Upon request, we can provide 24/7 care for the short or long term. Our caregivers can accommodate any variation of hours you may need, beginning with five hours per day. We can also flex longer-term care to meet each client’s individual needs.
