SAFE AT HOME
A Rehabilitative Alternative to Skilled Nursing Facilities
Following a major injury or hospitalization, many people are not in a place to simply go home and resume “normal” life. In order to be successful, they need medical oversight from doctors and nurses, 24-hour support, and rehabilitation experts, such as physical, occupational and speech therapists.
The historic solution has been to send patients who are discharging from the hospital to a skilled nursing facility, also referred to as a SNF. Skilled Nursing Facilities do an essential job of transitioning patients out of the hospital setting, but they also have drawbacks. A high concentration of patients means higher infection rates, less privacy, less control of schedule, and strict family visiting policies. EverHome’s Safe at Home program offers an alternative to the traditional model.
