What is Post-Hospital Discharge Care?
After a hospital discharge, you’ll need to carefully follow all of the instructions from your healthcare provider.
- If you have a question about your follow-up care, call to ask.
- If you’re concerned about problems, make sure to call with questions. This can help prevent problems from getting worse.
- Make sure to keep all of your follow-up appointments.
When you go to an appointment, be ready to tell your healthcare provider how you have been feeling.
- Bring copies of any test results.
- Ask questions about any part of your recovery or care.
- You may have been given important instructions to follow, such as weighing yourself daily or doing certain exercises to speed your recovery.
Let family members or friends be a part of your recovery after discharge.
- They may be able to pick up medications or take you to appointments.
- They may remember things that you forget about symptoms, problems, or questions you want to ask.
- This can help you ensure a smoother recovery after discharge.

Top things to consider when choosing an in-home care provider:
Being Dependable and On-Time: Hiring an experienced in-home care agency is important. An experienced provider will be reliable but will also have a back-up plan when a caregiver is sick.
Read reviews of the home care agency to see if past clients have been happy. Ask the agency if they have a plan in place for when a caregiver isn’t able to make it to the scheduled visit.
Available Services: Be sure that you understand the home care services that will be provided.
Ask questions. Be your own (or your senior’s) advocate. Follow up after visits if you have questions. Find out what the agency recommends if they are unable to provide certain services.
