The Journey to Recovery Through Our Senior Home Health Aide
Our senior home health aide can ease your loved one’s transition from the hospital or rehabilitation facility.
The period immediately after a hospital stay can be one of the most perilous to many seniors. A senior may be recovered enough to leave the hospital, but is probably still under the effects of medicines or in need of additional recovery time. Due to the confusion of a change to their daily routines, many seniors also face the challenges of missed medications or follow up appointments. This can create a dangerous chain reaction that ultimately lands a senior back in the hospital through no fault of their own.
One possible solution is the assistance of family caregivers, but they often find themselves unprepared or without the time to provide the senior with the needed level of care. Luckily Comfort Keepers can provide an alternative by providing a quality senior home health aide to support your senior loved one.
What is Transitional Care?
Transitional care is a proven way to help seniors recover faster and more completely while still maintaining a comfortable lifestyle at home. As seniors focus on recovering, being back in familiar settings, and visiting with family and friends, a senior home health aide can take care of everything else around the home. These services include:
- Creating and supporting a care plan to aid recovery.
- Assisting with housekeeping, meal preparation, and errands
- Transportation to and from follow up appointments
- Providing peace of mind to family and friends
- Communication with medical staff involved in the recovery process
- Ensuring medications are taken on time and in the proper quantity
