Post-Hospital Care in West Hartford, CT
Recovering from a hospital stay takes time—and the older a person is, the longer it can take them to get back to normal. It may be a relief to go home, but they will likely need extra care while they recover. During the recovery period, family members might not be available to provide support. If they are, they may not be capable of offering the best level of care their loved one truly needs. At Comfort Keepers of West Hartford, our caregivers can provide professional post-hospital care services for your loved one, right in the comforts of home.
Why is In-Home Care Important After Hospital Discharge?
Recovery from an injury or illness doesn’t stop when you and your loved one exit the hospital. Any medical event that involves a hospital stay will likely take weeks (sometimes months) for a full recovery, and a successful recovery depends on following instructions from your loved one’s doctor and care team.
The fact is that many seniors (about 20%) end up going back to the hospital within 30 days after discharge. Among those seniors who return to the hospital, the reason is often unrelated to the condition that admitted them in the first place. When individuals are discharged from the hospital, they often face compromised immune systems, sleep deprivation, new medications, and high-stress levels. Given these complex changes, life after discharge should be treated differently, even if it is temporary. It is crucial to have a caregiver who will recognize the warning signs of health issues during recovery and respond accordingly.
