After a successful rehab stay, seamless continuity of care upon discharge is very important. And
those leaving Wagner Transitional Care have a number of easily accessible options. Advantage
Home Health Services, as ordered by the doctor upon discharge to home, can pick up where
Wagner Transitional Care and AdvantageCare Rehab leave off. They provide home health care
into a person’s residence, whether it’s on the Messiah Village campus or across town. They can
continue to provide visiting nursing care, physical, occupational, and speech therapy in your home.
Furthermore, Messiah Lifeways At Home can provide additional non-medical care upon the return
to home such as assistance with activities of daily living like bathing, dressing and grooming, cooking,
grocery shopping, cleaning, laundry, and even transportation for follow-up appointments. See the
