Your Transition Services team will help you prepare for the transitions that will occur throughout your transplant process—such as the transition from your inpatient hospital stay, if you have one, to outpatient care at the SCCA clinic and then to care at home.
These transitions can be stressful times. Transition Services can help things go smoothly by:
- Meeting with you, your family and your caregiver to discuss your care at home before you are discharged from the hospital
- Teaching classes for caregivers on taking care of you at home
- Talking with the doctor who referred you to us about your medical needs and follow-up care
- Providing emotional support to you and your caregiver as you prepare to return home
Your “Patient & Caregiver Resource Manual” has detailed sections on care giving, long-term follow-up, managing your medications and more. Be sure to ask if you have questions about any of the information in this manual.
