From hospital to home

What is Home at Last?

Home at Last (HAL) helps individuals transition back into the comfort of their home after a brief or extended stay at a local hospital. We help coordinate the support services individuals may need during this time of transition.

Program Highlights

  • Makes the transition from hospital to home safe and comfortable
  • Provides reliable and comfortable transportation
  • Provides a trained and caring Personal Support Worker (PSW) who will go home with the patient and stay until they are settled
  • The PSW prepares a small meal or snack on the day the discharged patient returns home
  • Pick up your groceries and any of your prescriptions and medical equipment, if required.
  • Follow-up call and assessment post discharge

We strive to ensure each individual feels secure and cared for, in the comfort of your home!
