In Home Health Care in Jupiter, Florida
In home health care helps seniors with the transition home.
According to statistics from the United States Census Bureau, the nation’s population of aging adults is growing at an astounding rate. As the growth trend continues, so does the number of seniors requiring medical treatment due to auto accidents, accidental falls, respiratory or cardiac diagnosis, terminal illnesses and joint replacements.
Making sure the hospitals are equipped and prepared to accommodate the growth in demand for these services is only one of the challenges that the growing population presents. In addition to this challenge, seniors and family members are faced with the challenging of determining what happens to the loved ones once they are released from the hospital.
In many cases, seniors have family members, friends and other loved ones to assist them following their release from the hospital. There are some who at least have a friend, church or club member that can pick them up and get them home following discharge from the hospital. Unfortunately, almost half of current aging adults live by themselves and half don’t have the social and physical support they need following a hospital stay. This leads to at least 20 percent of the seniors being readmitted to the hospital, soon after they are released. In home health care provisions make it possible for seniors to transition home safely and without the interruption of having to return to the hospital.
