Help at Home
After your discharge from the hospital, continued rest, healing
and rehabilitation at home are important considerations on your road to recovery.
Whether you need assistance with normal daily activities, or if you would like
the security of an immediate personal response system, your care team at
Rutland Regional Medical Center is happy to help you to locate, and arrange
for, the at-home help you need through the hospital or an outside
resource. Feel free to talk to any
member of your care team about the options available to you.
sponsored programs include:
