Post-Hospital Care in Margate, NJ
When a person has a surgery or hospitalization, it means their body undergoes an experience that requires time to heal. The recovery from most injuries or illnesses typically requires a few weeks or months of healing before a patient can go back to regular activities. During this time, our team in Margate can support you or a loved one with a variety of activities at home to make the recovery process as smooth as possible.
What to Expect After a Hospital Stay
If you are just getting home from the hospital, there may be some pain, fatigue, and general weakness. This is usually not cause for alarm as this is the body’s way of healing and beginning the recovery process. It is also vital for you and your family to be aware of the additional support you may need when you come home from the hospital.
During the recovery period, relatives often want to help but their busy schedules prevent them from being able to. Generally, the people you love would rather simply spend time with you than oversee your post-hospital needs. Thankfully, families can find a solution for this by hiring a professional in-home caregiver to help with everyday tasks. This way, families can receive support through their loved one’s recovery while they focus on spending time with them.
What Does Post-Hospital Care Include?
When recovering from an illness or surgery, in-home care provides an excellent solution. Having a caregiver allows your loved one to simply focus on their health while receiving assistance with daily tasks. As opposed to a rehab center or skilled nursing facility, home care provides personalized, one-on-one care that is focused on your loved one’s unique 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 prevention
• Planning and preparing nutritious meals
• Medication tracking and reminders
• Light housekeeping
• Providing mentally stimulating activities and overall companionship
