Transitioning Care at Home at Comfort Keepers of Vancouver, BC
Our transitioning care enables seniors to live safely after a stay at the hospital or any health facility
As a senior is discharged from the hospital there are many variables in play that can lead to confusion. What medication do they take? How often? Are they still able to move properly? When is the follow-up appointment? These questions and more often lead to seniors missing appointments, misunderstanding directions, or not following recovery procedures and landing back in the hospital.
Family or friends might try to provide assistance to the recovering senior, but they typically find that they do not have the time, training, or resources to provide adequate help for the recovering senior. This is where Comfort Keepers Transitioning Care steps in, providing the care at home the senior needs and the peace of mind family and friends want.
