Transitioning Home Through Our Home Health Aide
This Home Health Aide Service Contributes to The Journey to Recovery
When a senior loved one is discharged from the hospital there are many dangers and unknowns that can negatively impact their recovery. Medications and a change in daily routine might have a temporary effect on memory, and directions for medications and recovery procedures are often complicated enough without being exhausted from a medical ordeal. The resulting confusion from changes in routine, recovery procedures, and the massive amount of information that comes from a hospital visit can result in slow recovery or even a return to the hospital.
Family caregivers might try to help a recovering loved one, but they typically find that they do not have the time or the ability to provide the complete care needed. Comfort Keepers provides an easy solution to this problem and can provide a home health aide to any senior in need of transitional care.
What is Transitional Care?
Transitional care is a proven way to help seniors recover faster and more completely with fewer complications. During the recovery period, a home health aide will provide personalized home care based on the senior’s needs. These services include:
Creating and supporting a care plan to aid recovery
Assisting with housekeeping, meal preparation, and errand
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
