Transitional In-Home Care in Chattanooga

When you or a loved one are recovering from a hospitalization or are being discharged from a rehabilitation center such as a skilled nursing facility, you may need short-term transitional home care. Our nurse-led care and team-focused approach are designed to optimize your health and well-being.

Even if your loved one is receiving skilled nursing care from another agency (such as a Medicare-approved group), the companion care and personal care services we offer through BrightStar® Home Care {{WebDisplayNamae}} provides a wonderful supplement. These services can help meet basic needs such as light housekeeping, companionship, family respite, dressing, personal hygiene and ambulation (walking and moving around).  

Professionally delivered care can help reduce undesirable outcomes such as re-hospitalization and falls; it may even reduce long-term healthcare costs by helping to prevent the health conditions from getting worse.

Short-Term Transitional Home Care Services

A Registered Nurse (RN) from BrightStar Home Care Chattanooga oversees the plan of care to help provide a safe transition back home. Our team provides a wide range of services to support a variety of health needs such as:

  • COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease): We’ll provide medication reminders and support habits to improve wellness.
  • Diabetes: We will conduct foot inspections as well as provide family education.
  • Heart Attack/AMI (Acute Myocardial Infarction): We’ll provide education and support to develop new lifestyle habits that promote heart health.
  • Heart Failure: We’ll help manage medication adherence, diet and exercise.
  • Pneumonia: We’ll provide medication reminders and personal care to support recovery.
  • Post-Operative: We will assist with surgical recovery in the comfort of home.
  • Stroke: We will help with activities of daily living (ADLs) like eating, dressing and mobility, as well as promote fall safety, offer medication reminders, and provide transportation to physician appointments or therapy (physical, occupational and/or speech).

Care Paths Deliver Superior Outcomes

One of the unique services we offer is Care Paths for Falls and Change of Condition. Although care paths are fairly common, we’ve taken this approach farther by building person-centered and condition-specific Care Paths based on your loved one’s unique needs, current conditions and past medical history.

Using our proprietary technology, our caregivers are able to help predict and prevent a fall or worsening of your family member’s current condition. When a change of condition is identified, we will communicate that information immediately to the supervising nurse at BrightStar Home Care Chattanooga and/or your loved one’s physician so any needed action can be taken.
