Discharge planning is an important aspect of Social Services provided by Heartwood. The development of the plan begins upon admittance to the facility. The discharge plan becomes an integral part of the resident’s total plan of care generated by the Heartwood Care Team under the direction of their personal physician.
Through individualized planning programs, the Social Services Department assists in the establishment of necessary support systems for the resident returning to the community, or another living arrangement.
Preparing the resident and caregiver with training and resources for this transition is a part of the plan.
