Objectives

  1. Educate patients and their families about the benefits and services offered at Assisted Living and nursing homes, emphasizing the specialized care and support available for their specific needs. 
  2. Collaborate with home health care providers to develop personalized transition plans, ensuring a smooth transfer of care and continuity of services for patients as they move from home health to Assisted Living and eventually to a nursing home. 
  3. Analyze comprehensive assessments to evaluate the physical, emotional, and cognitive health of patients, identifying any potential barriers or challenges that may arise during the transition process within their scope of practice. 
  4. Practice open communication and coordination among healthcare professionals, including physicians, nurses, therapists, and social workers, to ensure a seamless transition and optimal care coordination for patients throughout their journey. 
  5. Incorporate support and guidance to patients and their families during the transition period, addressing any concerns or questions they may have and providing resources and referrals to community services to enhance their overall well-being. 

Outline

What are the Different Care Settings to Discharge our Geriatric Clients to? 

  • Community Based Care 
  • Home Health Care 
  • Assisted Living Facility 
  • Skilled Nursing Facility 

 

  • Community-Based Care 
    • Older adults with disabilities can live at home with the help of their family and some special programs (I.e. home health) 
  • Home Health Care 
    • "Home health care" includes services such as: 
    • House calls that physicians, nurse practitioners, physical therapist, occupational therapist, speech pathologist and physician assistants make to a person’s home. 
    • Care that nurses, personal care aides, and rehabilitation therapists provide in the home of people with medical needs. These staff often work for home health agencies. 
    • Modifications to the home and technologies that help people with medical needs and disabilities carry out daily activities. 
  • Assisted Living Facilities 
    • Sometimes, an older adult needs more help with personal care than they can get at home from family, other caregivers, or home-based formal support programs.  
    • Assisted living are for these older adults, who needs care that cannot be met in their home, but they do not yet require skilled nursing services available all the time.  
    • This option can provide help to an older adult while protecting their privacy and independence. 
  • Skilled Nursing Facility 
    • Skilled nursing homes provide medical, health, and personal care, as well as supervision to people who need it. Nursing home residents generally have severe illness, disability, or cognitive impairment (problems with thinking, learning, or memory). 
    • The Federal government sets quality standards for nursing homes that serve people who have Medicare or Medicaid coverage. These rules require that nursing homes provide skilled nursing, rehabilitation, and other types of therapies that people may need. State licensure of nursing homes generally follows the federal standards. 
    • Note that the Federal government doesn’t regulate assisted-living and these homes don’t have to offer skilled nursing services like nursing homes do. States regulate assisted living and their rules vary across the country. 

Target Audience

  • Nurse Practitioners
  • Advance Practice Registered Nurses
  • Nurses
  • Physician Assistants
  • Occupational Therapists
  • Physical Therapists
  • Speech Language Pathologists
  • Nursing Home Administrators
  • Social Workers
