During your first visit, the nurse or therapist will share a lot of information with you. They will also make sure the information we have about you is correct. The first visit may take up to two hours. The nurse or therapist will talk about:

  • Your discharge paperwork and/or doctor’s orders
  • Your role as a patient/caregiver, including payment responsibilities
  • Your “Plan of Care,” including the services you will receive and how often team members will visit
  • Your goals for home care
  • Your medicines, including side effects and how and when to take them
  • Your risk for falling
  • How to contact the office with question or concerns
