An individual who has been hospitalized is often fearful to be transferred to a new place, even if that place is his or her own home.
ECS offers a full range of non-medical services for seniors in transition:
✔ On the way to a facility, we help our clients get dressed, stop for lunch, accompany them to their new setting, and make sure they are settled.
✔ We visit them to assure a positive transition.
✔ On the way home, we pack up belongings, fill out discharge papers, run any errands, accompany them home and make sure they are comfortable and settled.
✔ We keep families updated on the status and well-being of their loved ones at all times.
"Two adult daughters had placed their mom in a nursing facility, but she wasn't adjusting well. She refused to eat, do activities or take her meds. I spent time with her — we went for walks, built a comfort level. Soon, I became like a surrogate family member, making sure she had proper medication and making sure the staff were paying attention to her."
