Transitional Care

Springhill Home Health provides family members and loved ones with several levels of attentive and compassionate care services in the home setting.

What is Transitional Care?

Transitional care addresses the needs of patients in a declining state of health who are not yet ready to enter hospice care. Patients may continue to receive life-prolonging treatments in additional to palliative care that focuses on comfort measures and pain relief. Many studies have shown that palliative therapies can have a positive effect on a patient’s mobility, happiness and overall quality of life. Our experienced transitional care staff offer your loved ones the opportunity to experience joy and relief from pain as they navigate the final stages of life.
