FALL RIVER HEALTH SERVICES SWING BED PROGRAM


NEEDING ADDITIONAL HEALING TIME BEFORE HEADING HOME AFTER AN INJURY, ILLNESS OR SURGERY


Do these questions sound familiar?

I have recently fallen at home and need hip surgery. Now what?

I have been hospitalized due to a lung infection and will be discharged home, but I still don't feel strong enough to come in daily for antibiotics. Where can I go?

My spouse had a stroke. Who can help us? I'm worried that he is not strong enough to go home.

I live alone, and my family is too far away to help me after discharge.

How can I receive help in my home?

The answer is right here in your own community…
