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 are 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 appointments. This can lead to a dangerous chain reaction that ultimately lands a senior back in the hospital through no fault of their own.
Family caregivers with good intentions often try to help the senior with the transitional period, but typically find they are unavailable or ill-trained to fully meet the senior’s needs. Therefore, Comfort Keepers Transitional Care is the right choice for the period between the hospital and full recovery. Contact us at (778) 402-2175 for information on how to get started.
