Transitions is a free community service available to anyone with a life-limiting illness in need of emotional support and practical assistance. Our specially trained staff and volunteers donate their time to provide supportive services to clients and their families, such as:
- Assessment, case management, and phone support
- Help with errands
- Relief for the primary caregiver
- Assistance with locating additional resources available in the community
An important part of the Transitions program is the companionship, assurance, and support that are so vital to those facing complex issues relating to their illness, treatment, and outcomes.
The Transitions staff provides case management services to identify client and family needs and offers resources to fulfill those needs through volunteers, referrals and links to community agencies.
This service increases the likelihood that Transitions clients will receive appropriate medical and non-medical services from their community providers.
Community medical and non-medical providers also benefit from the monitoring services that Transitions offers. This unique program increases client communication with caregivers and facilitates networking between providers to enhance quality end-of-life care.
Transitions services are available at no charge. Anyone with a life-limiting illness is eligible. Services are provided to patients in their own home, nursing home or assisted living facility. For information about the Transitions program, contact Libby Kirby, Intake Coordinator at 785-537-0688.
