Hospital to Home (H2H)
Our signature hospital to home (H2H) programme aims to make the transition from institutionalised care to home setting seamless. Under this programme, we pay attention to all aspects to ensure conditions are ideal for clients' recovery and well-being.

Optima Homecare provides assessment and recommendations for home modifications to allow the performance of Activities of Daily Living (ADL) whilst ensuring home safety and fall prevention. Many homes are not designed to readily meet the needs of seniors with disability, the frail elderly or their carers. Should you feel your home hinders your loved ones from participating in their daily activities comfortably and safely, then Optima Homecare can help you!
Our therapists will assess your home design for safety and livability for seniors. Optima Homecare will work with our partner contractors to present home redesign options for you. We will also assist families to tap on government funding and grants such as Enhancement for Active Seniors (EASE).
We believe in empowering families and strengthening the support system so that clients are taken care of even when our therapists are not around. We train caregivers to offer support and aid in the rehabilitation of our clients. The training reduces caregiver stress and increases the confidence of families to look after the client.
Our Physiotherapists can train caregivers in techniques of physical assistance and simple exercises
