The Almost Home Difference
This program allows patients to stay close-to-home while still receiving
the best possible care. Patients will appreciate the continuity of care;
having access to the same staff who treated the patient during their hospital
stay, as well as the convenience of having instant access to necessary
services in one location. Another benefit of the program is the Almost
Home Coordinator who works closely with patients and their families on
admission and discharge planning.
