After Your Transplant: Patient Education

Post-Transplant Care at Home

Our goal is to help you develop the skills needed to take care of yourself when you return home after your organ transplant.

Receiving a new organ is a gift, but post-transplant life can be challenging. The goal of this program is to teach you the skills needed to properly take care of yourself when you return home. We will provide guidance on topics such as medications, post-transplant diet, and well water safety.


  • It's important to include everyone in your recovery.
  • You need to be patient with your recovery and with yourself.
  • If you have any questions, contact your Transplant Coordinator at 617-632-9700.
