Our Coming Home products were created out of necessity. We brought our medically fragile daughter home from the hospital and expected to get back to the way things were before the crisis. What we found was that everything changed. One of our biggest challenges was the overwhelming amount of medical information. It was very frustrating trying to remember and keep track of all of her medical history. We realized that we needed to find something to help us organize her personal health information in some fashion. Because of this, I created the Coming Home Medical Organizer to help me manage all of her health information.
About Us – Coming Home History
Coming Home, LLC was founded in Brownsburg, IN. A town just outside of Indianapolis, Indiana. What started out as a simple binder to hold all of the various layers of personal health, medical, and disease specific information for our medically fragile daughter turned into an organized account of our daughter’s medical care detailed with specific forms outlined in a family friendly and simplistic fashion with multiple computer options. Since then we have been able to help other families and caregivers all over the world.
Coming Home Story
When we left the hospital, we were not prepared to deal with the challenges of life at home. In our eagerness to get there, we failed to realize how unprepared we were in caring for our daughter; especially her medical needs.
Once we got our heads above water, we realized it was time to tread. Treading was exhausting; we needed to remember Dr’s visits, medication changes, complex diagnosis’ and our daughter’s most vital statistics. As time went on, there was too much to keep track of. We knew we could not go on this way forever.
We noticed that we were always answering lots of questions; and most of them were the same ones, day after day and week after week.
As we collected and organized our daughter’s information, we began to see that we were not as stressed. We could now listen during Dr. visits. Our organizer gave us a starting point to manage our daughters health, while giving us peace-of-mind; knowing that we had it all under control.
Instead of just listening, we found that we were becoming more proactive. We felt empowered to make more informed decisions and to work together as a partner with our daughter’s medical team. Over time, the Medical Organizer became our most important tool; making us confident and competent.
To serve God in every way; to extend a hand of grace, a word of encouragment, and a seed of faith that says “you can do this”.
To work towards educating those in the chronically ill and disabled communities, on the importance of being actively involved in the health and wellness of their family.
To give you the tools you need to help you have a smooth transition from a healthcare setting to your home. It is to encourage you to be proactive in the medical care of your loved one, to become the best advocate, to help empower you to take back some control, and to find confidence and peace of mind in the midst of chaos.
