Transitioning Home Care in Calgary, AB

Providing Transitioning Home Care for Seniors in Calgary.

If your elderly loved one has been in the hospital before, you know that transitioning home can be difficult. Following a hospital stay, most seniors cope with weakness, fatigue, mental confusion, and the inability to care for themselves and their home. The good news is that transitioning home care services by Comfort Keepers can help.

Transitioning Home Care in Calgary, AB

With our transitioning home care services, senior citizens can receive the support they need to live a healthy and safe life at home after returning home from the hospital. In addition to making life easier at home for elders, transitioning home care significantly reduces the risk of hospital readmission and helps ensure that your senior recovers as quickly as possible.

Our caregivers who we refer to as Comfort Keepers can collaborate with the medical professionals involved in your senior’s care plan so that they understand what types of medications and rehabilitation programs and activities are necessary for your elder to recover properly. Comfort Keepers will use this information to make sure that your elder is taking the correct medications at the right times and going to follow-up doctor’s appointments and/or physical therapy visits.

Transitioning home care often consists of personal care and companionship care services to help seniors take care of their home as well as their physical and mental health. Personal care services include bathing, grooming, and personal hygiene, transferring and positioning, toileting and incontinence care, and mobility assistance. Laundry, light housekeeping, grocery shopping, meal preparation, and errands are examples of several of our companionship care services.

A safety inspection in your senior’s home may occur as well in order to lower the likelihood of trips and falls that can lead to hospital readmission and serious injuries. During the inspection, a caregiver may suggest cleaning clutter, removing loose chords and throw rugs, adding additional forms of lighting, and installing hand rails or grab bars.

After your elder has fully recovered from his or her time at the hospital, continuing in home care services is an option. It’s a great way for seniors to continue living a safe, happy, healthy, and fulfilling life at home. While some elders may opt for services for a few hours a week, those with a chronic condition or more extensive needs may require full-time or 24-hour care.

If your senior loved one has recently arrived home from the hospital or is planning on being discharged soon, give Comfort Keepers a call. We’ll gladly meet with you and your elder to design a transitioning care plan that is ideal for his or her particular situation.
