Being discharged from the hospital after a stay can sometimes be a stressful endeavor for both the patient and family members. Keeping these tips in mind may lead to a smoother transition that may reduce rehospitalization and keep you or your loved one living comfortably at home.

Transitioning from the hospital into the home, through comprehensive planning and preparation with a skilled care team, can be a great way to start the recuperating process and ensure a successful recovery. To learn more about discharge planning, Medicare has put out a free resource that can help with a smooth transition back into your home. Your Discharge Planning Checklist is available by visiting or by calling 800-228-5993.
