Post Hospital Home Health Care for Your Loved One in Hollywood, FL
Comfort Keepers can support your loved one’s transition from hospital to home
Hospitalization is very stressful for older adults. But post-hospital recovery can be even worse, especially if your loved one lives alone. Studies have shown that seniors that do not have a good support system after hospitalization tend to recover slowly or even require hospital readmission. On the other hand, older adults who have someone to help them out during recovery can enjoy a speedy recovery and get back on their feet much faster.
How our post-hospital home health care works
Comfort Keepers home health care can provide your loved one with all the assistance they could possibly need after being discharged from a hospital or rehabilitation facility. This type of care starts the moment your loved one gets home and ends when your loved one is again able to take good care of themselves.
Because the early days of recovery are crucial, it is important to arrange professional home care for your loved ones while they are still in a hospital. This way, as soon as they are back home, they can count on a home health care expert to help them with all of their needs and prevent complications and hospital readmission.
While many family members often want to care for loved ones during the post-hospital recovery, they are often not prepared to meet the requirements of an older adult who has just been released from a hospital due to illness, injury, or surgery. But Comfort Keepers is happy to help, offering your family all of the support needed.
