Transitions Care
Living with a progressive illness...whether it is your own or that of someone you are caring for...can seem overwhelming. There are so many changes taking place. So many medical care options and resources to consider. So many community services available to you that you may not even realize.

Transitions, a community service program provided by Hospice & Home Care of Alexander County, Inc., offers a network of support. The program is designed to help individuals facing life-limiting illness and their families to find and utilize community resources, navigate through their health care system, and have practical support along the way. Transitions is offered at no charge to residents of Alexander and surrounding counties with a medical prognosis of a year or less who may still be actively
seeking treatment for their illness. Transitions utilizes case management services and trained volunteers to provide assistance with:
• Accessing and coordinating community services and
resources
• Emotional support
• Chores and food preparation
• Breaks for the family and caregivers
• Friendship and companionship
• Guidance in discussing health concerns with family
members
This unique program increases client communication with their caregivers and facilitates networking between providers to further enhance quality care.

HOW DOES ONE ACCESS TRANSITIONS?
