The C.A.R.E. Program™ (Coordination, Advocacy, Resources, and Education) is a community-based transitional care service available to patients and families affected by advanced or life-limiting illnesses. Those patients and families may still be in the process of undergoing curative treatments but still could benefit from the resources the CARE Program provides.

Horizon Home Healthcare services include:
Our Transition C.A.R.E. Program coordinator will work with the patient and family to provide additional resources and information to support the patient and family while they navigate this sometimes complex and complicated health care system. These resources may take the form of a medical social worker, Chaplin, some additional medical equipment — could even be something as simple as a volunteer to come and spend a couple of hours playing a board game with you in your home.
The Transition C.A.R.E. Program facilitates collaboration between the patient, family, and medical team to alleviate the stress associated with serious illness.
Our team members emphasize pain and symptom management, coordinated care and communication. We treat people suffering from chronic and serious illnesses such as: cancer, congestive heart failure, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, Alzheimer’s, and kidney failure, along with other cardiac diseases. The goal is to provide an additional support system to help improve the overall quality of life for patients and their families.
