Niskayuna, New York: After two years in a nursing home, this Your Health Your Home client wanted to bring her husband home to enjoy their life at home together. Weighing facility expense and rehabilitation options against homecare services made this decision seem extremely logical. Adding new accessible shower and developing a care plan with the client made it possible to do what many people thought would be too difficult.

After a care coordination meeting in the facility, Valerie offered her advocacy and planning to help facilitate a discharge home. Developing a plan of action with the client and the team of professionals made it possible to do what many people thought would be too difficult or impossible.

We started with a portable ramp the installation of a barrier free shower by Best-Bath-Systems.

YHYH coordinated with the facility and an outside agency that the family selected to assure medical and non-medical services were in place. We arranged with a local home delivery services for medication, equipment and personal care items for the day of discharge. YHYH loaned the couple a portable ramp (free).

Today our clients are home together and enjoying the comforts of their home and sharing the final chapter of their lives in the place they love.

YHYH will also offer client Post Rehabilitation exercise following home physical therapy.
