Post-Hospital Care – Promoting a Faster Recovery
When an elderly patient is hospitalized for a medical procedure or illness, their recovery can be lengthy and painful. If your elderly parent or loved one has recently received hospital treatment, Home Care Assistance offers Post-Hospital Care that promotes a faster recovery for seniors in the comfort of their home.
Avoid Hospital Readmission with Post Hospital Care
Unfortunately, after being discharged from the hospital, 35% of seniors are readmitted after only 90 days. For seniors, hospital readmission is usually a result of not following doctor’s recommendations, medication instructions or a poor recovery environment. Home Care Assistance provides home care tailored to meet the needs of individual patients in post-hospital recovery.
Our Post-Hospital Care can be in place before our clients are discharged from the hospital to help ensure a smooth transition. If your loved one is staying in an assisted living facility or a nursing home, our caregivers can provide 24 hours assistance with personal care.
Our Post-Hospital Caregivers are professionally trained and experienced in providing post-hospital care for seniors. We offer hourly care and live-in home care to accommodate whatever level of care is required. We help our clients avoid readmission and have a faster recovery period by ensuring that our clients:
- Follow their medication administration schedule prescribed by their doctor
- Attend all follow up appointments
- Eat an appropriate diet and participate in therapy exercises
- Receive encouragement, support and companionship throughout the recovery process
A Smoother Transition from Hospital to Home
Because our clients need us on their terms, our caregivers are available anytime or anywhere. Contact a Care Manager at (209) 650-8500 to discuss a “Hospital to Home” transition plan that will allow for a quicker and more relaxing recovery.
