Post-Hospital Care in Northfield, NJ
Comfort Keepers can bring quality post-hospital care to individuals in Northfield and other New Jersey areas, right in the comfort and convenience of their own homes. Research shows that most seniors and older adults prefer to be cared for at home, especially while recovering from surgery. While each person’s recovery process is different, our post-hospital home care aims to include patient and family engagement, shared decision making, and customizing a care plan to meet all of your needs. Our care services can help you or a loved one recover as quickly as possible, stay safe at home, and help to avoid another hospital stay.
Advantages of Post-Hospital Care at Home
For a senior loved one and their family, coming home from the hospital can be a relief and overwhelming all at the same time. However, whether your loved one is recovering from surgery or an illness, in-home care may be the perfect solution. When you understand some of the following advantages of recovering at home, it can help you get the most out of your experience and turn a stressful situation into a manageable one.
Reduced Risk of Infections
One of the most significant risks of extended hospitalizations is acquiring an infection. Because individuals often have compromised immune systems after surgery, this makes them more vulnerable to bacterial or fungal infections. While the home is not a completely sterile environment, there is a lower concentration of bacteria and less risk of transmitting diseases from patient to patient.
Enjoy Better Sleep
Sleep is the body’s time to reconstruct, heal, and rejuvenate. When you are recovering from a severe injury or illness, it is essential to have a night of quality sleep. The hospital atmosphere, however, is not suitable for restorative sleep. Frequent interruptions, talking, sounds of machines, and restrictive beds are all familiar in this environment and can cause a lack of sleep that slows down the healing process. When you receive care at home, you will experience better rest and a smoother recovery.
Social Interaction In Familiar Surroundings
Being with loved ones and having frequent positive experiences with family and friends can be a fantastic motivator during the recovery process. Being in the familiar surroundings of home with your loved ones, memories, art, and hobbies can be a great reminder of identity and help you rise to the challenge of getting well.
Continuous Help At Home
When helping a loved one transition from the hospital to home, one of the most important things to remember is that you don’t have to do it alone.
