Transitioning Home

Transitioning from an institutionalized setting, such as a hospital or nursing home, back to the comfort of your own home is a welcome change. However, it often comes with a number of challenges that can hinder your success and safety. Direction Home Akron Canton is deeply committed to helping our consumers achieve the best possible medical outcomes while remaining in community-based home settings. From locating housing to reconciling medications to finding in-home care support, we can help get you back home. Direction Home offers two nationally recognized transition programs:

  • Acute Care Transitions (ACT) – Designed for patients transitioning from hospital to home
  • HOME Choice – Assists those moving from a long-term care facility (hospital, nursing home or residential treatment facility) to a community-based setting
