What is Transitions?
The Transitions program provides emotional support and assistance to individuals and families who are coping with serious illness like Congestive Heart Failure, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, Alzheimer’s Disease, Liver Disease, and others.
Transitions provides clients and families:
- Light household help
- Help with errands
- Respite for caregivers
- Community resource tools
How does it work?
- Clients can be referred by anyone – a friend, minister, doctor, etc.
- Transitions staff will assess the client for admission and contact their physician to request a referral.
- Once the referral is received, clients will be admitted and assigned a volunteer.
- Volunteers visit regularly to monitor needs or changes, and report them to the transitions coordinator.
What is the benefit?
- Early and ongoing case management services.
- Information on local resources for pharmacies, home health equipment, senior housing, support groups, social services, and more.
- Trained volunteers to provide occasional help with things like household chores, meal prep, light housekeeping, errands, companionship and respite breaks for the caregiver.
What does it cost?
There is no charge for services provided by Transitions.
