Comfort Keepers Transitioning Home Health Care in Gainesville, FL, and surrounding areas
Keep Your Loved One on the Road to Recovery with Comfort Keepers® Comfort Care
The hospitalization of a loved one is stressful, but the transition from the hospital or a rehabilitation facility to home can be even more difficult. In fact, frequent readmissions have plagued the healthcare industry; so much so that the Affordable Care Act included a provision to offer financial incentives to hospitals to reduce readmission rates. How can you help your loved one enjoy a more comfortable recovery and possibly avoid unexpected readmission? Comfort Keepers® Gainesville, FL home health care is here to provide supportive, comfort care.
In-Home Transitioning Care Makes a Difference
After a hospital stay, your loved one needs time to rebuild his or her strength. Often the burden of helping your loved one through the challenges of recovering from a surgery or serious hospitalization falls on family members. While your heart is in the right place, providing transitioning care without proper training can result in a slower recovery for your loved one, while also taking a physical and emotional toll on you. At Comfort Keepers comfort care of Gainesville, we understand the specialized care needs that follow a hospitalization. Comfort Keepers® provide services that can smooth the transition from hospital to home, such as
- support for household activities like meal preparation and laundry,
- assistance with personal needs like bathing and getting dressed,
- transportation to fill prescriptions or attend follow-up doctor’s visits, and,
- coordination with your loved one’s medical team to ensure that discharge instructions are being followed.
Whether you live nearby and just need respite care so that you have a chance to handle other responsibilities, or you live out-of-town and are unable to provide as much support as your loved one needs during recovery, Comfort Keepers Gainesville works with you to design a transition comfort care plan based on your loved one’s unique situation. The result? You get the peace of mind that comes from knowing your loved one has exactly the care needed for a successful recovery.
