The Journey to Recovery: Quality Home Care in Anoka, Blaine, Andover, White Bear Lake, and surrounding areas.
Easing your loved one’s transition from the hospital or rehabilitation facility to home, through quality home care aid.
When a senior loved one is discharged from the hospital there are many dangers and unknowns that can negatively impact their recovery. Medications and a change in daily routine might have a temporary effect on memory, and directions for medications and recovery procedures are often complicated enough without being exhausted from a medical ordeal. The resulting confusion from changes in routine, recovery procedures, and the massive amount of information that comes from a hospital visit can result in slow recovery or even a return to the hospital. Often this begins a spiral down effect that can take away a seniors independence.
Family caregivers with the best intentions often try to help the senior during the transitional period, but typically find they are unavailable or ill-trained to fully meet the senior’s needs. Comfort Keepers Transitional Care is the right choice when family caregivers need assistance and want the help of quality home care aid.
What is Transitional Care?
Transitional care is a proven way for seniors to recover faster and more completely while returning to their daily routines at home. Transitional care allows seniors to focus on the things important to them and take the time to rest while a caregiver tends to the house and tasks that may be too challenging due to limitations imposed by medical procedures. Comfort Keepers can provide quality home care aid, including:
- Creating and supporting a care plan to aid recovery.
- Assisting with housekeeping, meal preparation, and errands
- Transportation to and from follow up appointments
- Providing peace of mind to family and friends
- Communication with medical staff involved in the recovery process
- Ensuring medications are taken on time and in the proper quantity
- Support PT/OT efforts
