Transition Care - How We Can Help
A transition of care (TOC) is when someone moves from one care setting – such as a hospital, skilled nursing facility, rehabilitation center or even their home – to another. Unfortunately, these transitions don’t always go smoothly and a person can be readmitted to the hospital.
Obtain and review hospital discharge instructions and incorporate these instructions into a client’s personalized care plan
Pick up prescriptions, provide medication reminders and help the client adhere to their prescribed regimen
Educate the client, caregivers and family members on red flags or warning signs for chronic conditions
Assist clients with
scheduling and attending follow-up medical appointments
Communicate with the client’s family members, discharge planner, health coach or other health care professional
Assist with personal care services such as bathing, grooming and personal hygiene
Help with meal preparation, laundry and light housekeeping

For individuals that need Transitions of Care services, At Your Side offers a one-time “Transition to Home” package. This includes transportation from the hospital, rehabilitation center or skilled nursing facility along with help getting settled in at home. We’ll even call a friend or family member to let them know their loved one has arrived home.

Hospital Stay / Discharge / Transition
When a loved one is in the hospital, you want to be there with them, but that isn't always possible. If you live far away, work full time, or have other family to care for, it may be difficult for you to get to the hospital.
If the hospital discharges your loved one with little notice, and you live out of town or work responsibilities prevent you from taking them home yourself, take advantage of At Your Side's Transition of Care Packages.
Experienced staff meet with the hospital discharge planner shortly before you or your loved one is discharged to help ensure a safe and successful transition home. This includes picking up all prescribed medications, obtaining directions on how the medications are to be taken, as well as specific instructions on physical limitations and dietary recommendations, and when to schedule follow-up physician visits. Ask for more details! These services are offered per diem or on a short or long-term basis.

David and Laura Hittler, Owners
For many people and their families, aging can be a stressful time. There are new emotions, stress and financial considerations that were never there before. We are here to guide you through that. We want to be your advocate, partner and friend who will give you advice while you’re navigating this new arena.
My Favorite Thing About Helping
Spending time with my clients is hands-down my favorite thing about being in this business — seeing the smiles on their faces when I know we’re doing the right thing. The relationships we have with our clients and their families are full of jokes and laughter. We’re just like family and friends, giggling and telling stories. You know that friend who invites himself to dinner without you asking? I’m that friend, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
My Most Memorable Moment
Hurricane Harvey in 2017 was a difficult time for seniors in Houston. Stress can cause the health of our older adults to tip in a negative direction. I wanted to make sure my clients — who I truly consider friends — were taken care of. That’s why I found myself swimming into a building to get medicine for a client who is very dear to my heart. Seeing the client overcome with so much emotion and gratitude was an important moment for me. Doing the right thing for my friends is why I am here.

One Last Thing…
I believe in integrity and honesty. All families, including mine and my wife’s, have people who struggle. It’s hard to not battle with them, but amidst all the conflict, let’s do the right thing together. We will advise, guide and give all the help we can provide to make that happen. "It's all about integrity and honesty." -David Hittler
