Transitioning Home with Our Senior Caregivers in Greater Centennial, CO
Find out more about how our senior caregivers can help your loved one transition home for a full recovery in Centennial, South Denver, Aurora, and the surrounding area
Once a person has been discharged from the hospital, the road to recovery is only half complete. The time immediately after a hospital stay is critical to their health and recovery. Multiple studies in the past have shown that a lack of proper care and support following serious hospitalization or surgery can lead to a readmission or slower-paced recovery.
Typically, family members can volunteer to take care of their loved ones once they have been discharged from the hospital, but providing proper care can be arduous. These people are ill-prepared and untrained to meet the physical and emotional challenges presented by taking care of such people who are transitioning home. This is why our professional senior caregivers, offer different home care services to create a successful transition for loved ones returning home from surgery.

We Make Transitioning Home Safe and Simple
Our senior caregivers provide care to seniors and older adults in Centennial, CO. It can be very difficult for older adults to make a smooth transition home following a hospital stay. They may be weaker than usual and unable to care for themselves once they make it back home. Unfortunately, this may lead to a longer recovery period and hospital readmission.
Quicker Recovery & Reduce Risk of Hospital Readmission
The good news is that our senior caregivers offer elderly support services for seniors who have just arrived home from the hospital. Our services are designed to help older adults recover quickly and reduce their risk of returning back to the hospital.
Customized Care Plans
If you decide that our transitioning home care services are right for your older loved one, a client care coordinator will collaborate with you, your senior, and the hospital staff to determine what is necessary for a safe and speedy recovery. Next, a customized care plan will be designed and include a variety of personal care and companionship care tasks.
Some of these tasks may include personal hygiene assistance, incontinence care, grocery shopping, meal preparation, and medication reminders. A senior caregiver may also provide dependable transportation to ensure that your senior makes it to follow-up appointments and receives prescriptions on time.
In addition, a caregiver may perform a walkthrough in your senior’s home to make sure it is free of any hazards that may prompt falls, trips, and injuries in the future. During the walkthrough, the senior caregiver may get rid of loose chords, add extra lights, install grab bars, and make other changes that will create a safer environment for your senior.
Services Can Be Continued Following Recovery
Many older adults who take advantage of our services following a hospital stay decide to continue working with us once they recover. They find great value in the services that our Comfort Keepers provide and realize that they can benefit from the guidance of a senior caregiver to help them live a more independent, fulfilling lifestyle at home.
