Leaving the Hospital

  • Help at Home

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.

Hospital sponsored programs include:

  • Lifeline. Rutland Regional Medical Center’s Lifeline Program is a personal response system which allows subscribers to remain in their homes, yet have help available at the touch of a button, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. For a program application or for more information, feel free to call 802.747.1816. 
  • Bridges and Beyond. Bridges and Beyond is a community volunteer program whose mission is to help support independent living, while improving the quality of life for both the volunteer and the clients they serve. The program provides non-medical support to residents of any age in the Rutland region, which may include such activities as shopping or running errands, local transportation, companionship, some assistance with light household chores, or respite care. There is no fee to receive services through this program, though donations are greatly appreciated.
