The Journey to Recovery With Post Hospital Care in Huntington Beach, CA
Comfort Keepers of Huntington Beach proudly provides transitioning services to help seniors recover from being in the hospital
Many of us have returned home after a hospital stay and been surprised at how challenging it is to keep up with or daily household chores. Imagine how much more difficult this can be after a major illness or injury and the extra strain it puts on the elderly. The time immediately after a hospital stay can be critical to the health and recovery of a loved one. Studies show that the lack of proper support and care following surgery or a serious hospitalization can lead to slower recovery or even readmission to the hospital. Family members often take on the task of caring for a loved one after a hospital stay but can find they are untrained or ill-prepared to meet the physical and emotional challenges of such care. That is why Comfort Keepers® offers post hospital care to ease the transition home.

What Is Transitioning Care?
This specialized care helps ease your loved one’s transition from a hospital stay to the home. Some of the services Comfort Keepers can provide includes the following:
- support of the care plan to aid the recovery process
- assistance with household activities and responsibilities, including meal preparation, housekeeping, and running errands
- incidental transportation for follow-up visits
- peace of mind for family and friends
- communication with the medical team as needed
Why Use Transitional Care?
Healing is often not complete upon discharge from a medical facility. Sometimes the process takes weeks or even months before we can comfortably take on our regular routine of meal preparation, housekeeping, and personal grooming. If you have a loved one who has recently been hospitalized, consider post hospital care to promote complete recovery and safety once they return home.
How Comfort Keepers Can Help
Comfort Keepers offers senior in home care that is customized to each individual’s needs. For transitional care, this may mean that initial care is around the clock and includes a wide array of in-home services. As healing continues and mobility is improved, transitional care can be reduced and independence encouraged. Our objective is to ensure that each person has the help they need when they need it to create the ideal environment for healing.
Each caregiver at Comfort Keepers is more than a helping hand. They also provide companionship that is essential to healing and quality of life. When you decide to use Comfort Keepers for transitional care, you provide your loved one with a friend that will care for them as if they were a member of our own family.
In addition to the customary homemaker/companion and personal care services Comfort Keepers provides, we are able to adapt services to accommodate clients with specific medical needs such as:
- congestive heart failure
- myocardial infarction (heart attack)
Let Comfort Keepers help guide you safely through the transition process. It offers clients peace of mind and can help with the recovery once your loved one returns home. We are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to help your family member recover.
