Primary In-Home Services

Patients are often hospitalized to receive medical treatment when they are acutely ill, or for surgical treatment to repair an injury or treat a serious illness. When patients are being prepared for discharge from the hospital, hospital staff must arrange for the services they will need to return home safely. Through Lifetime Care, patients can receive skilled professional care and assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs).
