Bridges are often a welcome sight.
They lead us to a new vista or, in many instances, home from a trip away.
Diakon Senior Living Services’ Bridge to Home program is one more instance of that important connection—a critical link to comforting surroundings, to what is familiar.
Diakon’s Bridge to Home service is a concept we offer to help rehab patients and others nearing the end of hospitalization or short-term care take the important steps to return home.
When older adults face an illness, the need for recovery from a
hospitalization or support with daily activities, loved ones may think
short-term rehabilitation is the perfect option.
Often, it is.
But we may also need to consider what happens if the loved one is not
able to regain abilities fully. Where do you turn next at that point?
Organizations such as Diakon Senior Living Services
can help. If you have an aging parent preparing for short-term
rehabilitation, making slow progress or not meeting goals, you may want
to consider discussing long-term care before it is needed.
