Discharge Planning

Discharge Planning at Floyd Valley Healthcare is a service that assists patients and their families with homecare needs. The goal is to complete this activity with as much ease and success as is possible.

Discharge planning's effort is to make the patient aware of the available resources to enhance their quality of life when the patient returns to their home environment. Resources available include home health care, therapy, Lifeline, Meals on Wheels and Heat and Eat Meals.

If a loved one is no longer safe in their home, discharge planning can assist in the search for other options. Placing a loved one in a new environment can be one of the most difficult situations one ever faces.

The process of finding the right environment can be emotionally and physically exhausting. Discharge planning strives to provide information for care that is realistic and appropriate for each individual and their family.

This process helps the family understand the social and personal needs of the loved ones, so that together they can find the appropriate care. Discharge planning works closely with patient, family members, and physicians to ensure communication of needs of all involved is being met.
