Post-Hospital Care in Linwood, NJ
Whether planned or unexpected, surgery or hospitalization means that a person’s body has gone through an experience that requires time to heal. Depending on the type of surgery, most will need a few weeks or months of help until they have fully recovered and can resume all normal activities without assistance. At Comfort Keepers, we can ease the transition from the operating room to your home and ensure that your healing process is as smooth as possible.
What To Expect After A Hospital Stay
When you come home from the hospital, you might experience some pain, fatigue, and general tiredness. These feelings are prevalent under these circumstances and should not alarm you. It is merely your body’s way of healing and beginning the recovery process. It is also vital that you and your family know the additional support you may need when you come home from the hospital.
If you come from a large family, you may have well-meaning relatives who want to help, but busy schedules often make that difficult. Most loved ones would rather simply spend time with you than oversee your medical needs. In this case, it is the perfect opportunity to bring in a professional caregiver who can assist with daily tasks while the family can focus on being a support system for their loved one.
What Does Post-Hospital Care Include?
Home care is an ideal option when recovering from an illness or surgery. Having a caregiver allows you to focus on regaining your health while receiving assistance in everyday tasks until you can complete them independently. A caregiver can also help during the recovery process by preparing healthy meals, setting medication reminders, and escorting you to follow-up medical appointments.
Unlike sharing a caregiver with many other patients at a rehab center or skilled nursing facility, home care provides personalized, one-on-one care. When you choose in-home care with Comfort Keepers, we will set up a customized care plan that includes uniquely tailored services to you or a loved one’s individual needs. Some of the services we provide with post-hospital care include the following:
- Adapting the home environment for safety and independence
- Collaboration with the care team and family members
- Providing transportation to appointments and other errands
- Assistance with personal care (bathing, toileting, oral care, etc.)
- Transfers, mobility, fall reduction
- Planning and preparing nutritious meals
- Medication tracking and reminders
- Light housekeeping
- Providing mentally-stimulating activities and overall companionship
