Transitioning Home With Post-Hospital Care

Comfort Keepers In-Home Care in Owensboro, Kentucky.

The Importance of Post-Hospital In Home Care

Seniors who have been to the hospital, whether for surgery or an emergency, need to recover in a soothing setting. Comfort Keepers provides in home care for those following a hospital visit to assist them in making the transition from hospital to home care.

When elders do not receive the care they require following surgery, they are frequently readmitted to the hospital. They go home and tell themselves, "I'll be fine; I can take care of myself." However, without a caretaker, post-surgery rehabilitation can be difficult. Comfort Keepers collaborates with hospitals to provide transitional care for seniors in order to reduce re-admission.

Post-hospital home care tasks include:

  • Assuring hydration throughout the day
  • Ensure someone is getting the proper nutrition
  • Managing medication as prescribed by doctors and healthcare providers

Notice When Help Is Needed

Seniors and/or their adult children sometimes fail to identify when their parents require post-hospital home care. They perceive themselves or their parents to be robust adults who can care for themselves, but in actuality, they are more frail and require more assistance than they even know themselves. Accepting that your loved one may require post-hospital home care will help their rehabilitation go more smoothly and comfortably.
