By providing uplifting care during recovery at home, we can ease your loved one’s transition after discharge from a hospital or time at a rehabilitation facility. After hospital care for the elderly is critical to both physical recovery and emotional wellbeing, especially for seniors who live in the comforts of home instead of a senior rehabilitation center. Comfort Keepers® provides a range of in-home senior care and custom care plans, including following hospital-provided discharge plans and rehab for the elderly after hospital stay, all in the comfort and privacy of home.
Challenges of rehabilitation
Rehabilitation after an injury or illness can be a complicated process, especially for senior rehab. The time immediately following release from the hospital is a critical phase of recovery.
In addition to physical challenges, patients can experience depression or anxiety caused by social isolation and a change to their normal routine. And, due to the current health crisis, we understand that more people may be recovering at home following a hospitalization.
Trained in infectious disease control and senior care, our caregivers can help those in recovery stay safely in the comfort of home and reduce the risk of re-injury or hospital readmission by following discharge care plans.
We can also provide respite care or a short period of relief for family members and other primary caregivers. After a major surgery or hospital stay, it is common for family to temporarily move-in, or make arrangements to have their loved one move in with them. This compassionate change in routine can be stressful and overwhelming. Our trained caregivers can step in to allow primary caregivers to take a much-needed break and recharge.
Uplifting care during post-hospital recovery
Comfort Keepers supports families by providing quality in-home care for seniors and other adults who need help at home during recovery after a hospital stay.
Our custom care plans are created to meet the needs of each unique individual we serve and can help ensure an easier recovery at home. We also support physician-prescribed exercise regimens, provide companionship and help families stay connected through technology.
At Comfort Keepers, we strive to elevate the human spirit through quality, compassionate, joyful care.
Comfort Keepers often works cooperatively with home health agencies, physical therapists, and other health professionals to provide complementary services so seniors and other adults are provided a full spectrum of care that will help expedite the recovery process.
Comfort Keepers caregivers make our clients’ transitions from hospital to home as seamless, safe, and positive as possible. Our caregivers post-operative care services include:
- Transportation - Comfort Keepers can provide transportation home from a hospital or facility, including scheduled follow up appointments and physical therapy sessions.
- Medication Reminders - Caregivers will pick up prescriptions and other supplies, and we can remind clients to take their medication on time.
- Encouragement - Recovery is hard work and Comfort Keepers is there to provide encouragement and support doctor-prescribed physical or speech therapy.
- Companionship - It’s not unusual for clients recovering from surgery to experience melancholy or become frustrated. Comfort Keepers is there to provide companionship and engage in meaningful activities that the client enjoys.
- Personal Care - Surgery and extended hospital stays often result in weakness and limited range of motion that cause difficulty grooming and bathing. Our caregivers can provide basic personal hygiene support to help get dressed and ready every day. This also includes light housekeeping to keep the home environment clean, tidy, and safe from any hazards.
- Respite Care - When you or other primary caregivers need relief, our caregivers can step in. We will cover all responsibilities while you take a break and recharge.
- Patient Monitoring and Communication - Comfort Keepers will provide follow-up communication with family members and a client’s Primary Care Physician to keep everyone updated on recovery status.
We actively work with our clients and their families to create a postoperative care strategy that fits everyone’s specific needs.
