The Journey to Recovery
We can ease your loved one's transition from the hospital or rehabilitation facility to home, which can lead to a better, more comfortable recovery.
The time immediately following release from the hospital is a critical period for recovery. Studies show a lack of proper care and support following surgery or hospitalization can lead to slower recuperation. There's even a possibility of readmission to the hospital due to serious complications. This is why it is so important to have a strong support plan in place before transitioning home.
While family and friends may be eager to help their loved one after a hospital stay, they lack the proper training to meet specific needs. Despite best efforts, they may end up doing more harm than good. Comfort Keepers® caregivers receive expert training to provide care during this important time of recovery. Our services can help make it a smooth, easy transition. The work we do promotes healing, and reduces stress and anxiety during the process.
Understanding Transitioning Care
Our goal is to make the transition from hospital to home as seamless, safe, and as positive as possible. Our caregivers provide the following services:
- support of the care plan to aid the recovery
- assistance with household activities and responsibilities, including meal prep, housekeeping, and running errands
- incidental transportation for follow-up appointments, such as office visits and physical therapy
- peace of mind for family and friends
- communication with the medical team, as needed
Having one of our caregivers take care of your loved one as they transition home provides untold peace of mind. The responsibility of your loved one's recovery doesn't have to be yours to bear alone. With us at your side, you'll be able to run to the store, get other work done, and de-stress. Our care reduces both the physical and emotional challenges facing your family as your loved one gets better. Remember, post-surgical care regimens are often demanding. Allow us to be the support system your family needs.
