Recovering from a hospital stay can be a full-time job, especially when your doctor tells you to get plenty of rest. However, many people underestimate the challenges of recovery and they often have responsibilities that simply can’t be ignored. When a person puts these responsibilities ahead of their recovery, they risk straining or further injuring themselves, and the recovery period can take longer than anticipated. One of the best ways to prevent this is to ensure they have the support they need at home. At Comfort Keepers, we provide in-home post-hospital care in Manhattan, so our clients can recover quickly and safely in the comforts of home. Our compassionate caregivers assist clients with personal care, provide companionship, offer medication reminders when needed, and help with chores around the home to make life easier. If you or a loved one have a planned hospital stay or upcoming surgery, contact us today to learn more about the benefits of our in-home care services.
Why is Post-Hospital Care Important?
Healing from an injury or illness doesn't end when you leave the hospital doors. In fact, recovery from a hospital stay can often take weeks or months at a time - especially after major surgery. The duration and efficiency of a patient’s recovery will depend on whether they follow instructions from their doctor and the quality of care they receive. When patients do not follow instructions or discharge orders properly, they risk further injury and even readmission to the hospital. Hospital readmissions can also be due to recurrence of a preexisting infection, failure to take medications, fall-related injuries, missing follow-up appointments, pneumonia, and other instances. Having an in-home caregiver is incredibly beneficial because they ensure patients follow discharge orders and receive the exact care they need after a hospital stay.
