Things to know

The health care provider who’s managing your transition back into the community will work to coordinate and manage your care for the first 30 days after you return home. They'll work with you, your family, caregivers, and other providers as appropriate.

  • Review information on the care you got in the facility
  • Provide information to help you transition back to living at home
  • Work with other care providers
  • Help you with referrals or arrangements for follow-up care or community resources
  • Help you with scheduling and managing your medications
