A Safe Transition from Hospital to Home
COVID-19 has dominated not only the headlines, but also the headspace of people across the planet. Physical restrictions and perceived limitations have dramatically altered the routines of life.
Unfortunately, the presence of the coronavirus has not created the absence of other diseases, accidents, and injuries that also cause people to seek medical care. As individuals receive care and transition between hospital, rehab facility, and home, they can now do so with greater peace of mind.

How Long, O Lord?
When the COVID-19 virus first hit the headlines, it seemed we didn’t know what to think. Once we were bombarded with headlines and mandates, we were afraid to think about what we were afraid of. Now that many places are opening up, there is still a lot of uncertainty, and we don’t know what to think. We had hoped this situation would go away in a short time, but one constant theme throughout this pandemic has been, “How long?” How long will it last? How long must we wear masks? How long will businesses be closed? How long before a vaccine is found? The longer we wait, the more plaintive our “How longs” get.
