Transition Care in Putnam County
Helping in Your Time of Need
Transitioning home after a short hospital or skilled nursing stay can be a little tough to acclimate to.

Helping You Return to Your Home and Independence
In-home transitional care is the temporary care that is intended to help you recover after a short inpatient stay in either the hospital, a rehab facility, or a skilled nursing center. Recovery and healing don’t happen over night, and very rarely does a patient go from needing inpatient care to being completely independent at discharge. And, sometimes, there is no returning to the “before,” and you may need some support establishing your new normal. Transitional care includes all the services that help you complete the recovery process and get to the point where you can live on your own again.
Whether you need in-home non-medical care for a few weeks or you require daily home health nursing care, or you need a mix of services to meet your unique needs that change as you progress, Angels on Call Homecare can meet those needs. We offer in-home transition care in Bronx County, Dutchess County, Orange County, Putnam County, Rockland County and Sullivan County as well as Westchester & Ulster Counties. Our services are flexible, and we bill most major insurances. To get the care you need in the comfort of your own home, contact us for the care you can count on.

Research shows that transitional care interventions implemented by a home health agency prior to discharge from an acute care facility reduced the risk or injury and readmission by nearly 50%. More than that, the stress reduction and emotional support patients felt helps to speed up recovery and reduce feelings of isolation or failure to thrive.

What seemed like a stressful move was actually a seamless transition because of the skilled medical professionals at Angels
This agency has been a helping hand to my grandfather for the past two years. Angels on Call was there every step of the way when my grandfather took a fall. We were assisted and coached through the entire hospital discharge and transition back to the home. What seemed like a stressful move was actually a seamless transition because of the skilled medical professionals at Angels. My grandfather adores his live-in caregiver and his weekly visits from his RN Case Manager has quickly become his favorite day of the week. They truly deliver the highest level of quality care and their commitment to my family and grandfathers needs are what sets them apart from other agencies!
