It’s not uncommon that I get phone call from a person telling me their loved one is being discharged this afternoon, and asking if I can help them. At SYNERGY HomeCare of Rochester, we pride ourselves in providing home care service on short notice. But it doesn’t need to be this way. When your loved one is in the hospital, you can take charge and be their advocate; that means asking questions about their medical condition and when can you expect discharge to occur. Even if the discharge is delayed at least you have something to plan for.
