Post-Hospital Care in Marietta, OH
Having your loved one leave the hospital after a severe injury, illness, or health issue is a hectic transition to get them home and comfortable. There is the risk of post-hospital syndrome, a period of vulnerability that can last for as long as seven weeks after the original discharge. This period leaves them at a higher chance for rehospitalization if the proper care is not provided.
Family members will often take the task of helping a loved one but discover they may not meet the physical and emotional challenges on top of their own daily tasks. That is why Comfort Keepers is glad to help, offering in-home senior care to ease your loved one’s transition back home and return to their daily life.

How Post-Hospital Care Reduces Readmissions
Studies show 1 in 5 seniors who are released from the hospital will get readmitted within a month. Seniors who end up re-hospitalized in this 30-day window have a much lower chance of a full recovery.
Preventable re-hospitalizations can be avoided by following the doctor’s orders. Still, after surgery, serious injury, or illness, seniors can find it difficult or even impossible to complete the necessary daily tasks. To ensure they can follow the doctor’s instructions as well, seniors need outside support.
When the doctor’s plan is followed, seniors will find their quality of life not just returning to normal but also improving. The entire time, you can rest easy knowing your loved one is being taken care of by an expert team of caregivers. Not only will you be able to complete your daily tasks, but you can enjoy quality time with your loved one without worry.
Comfort Keepers is here to help guide you and your loved one through the transition process safely. We are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to help, so contact us today to get your loved one the post-hospital care they need.
