Transitional Care in Sugar Land and Richmond, Texas

Call Us Now at (346) 279-2327

By providing uplifting care during recovery at home, we can ease your loved one’s transition after discharge from a hospital or time at a rehabilitation facility. After hospital care for the elderly is critical to both physical recovery and emotional wellbeing, especially for seniors who live in the comforts of home instead of a senior rehabilitation center. Comfort Keepers® of Sugar Land provides a range of in-home senior care and custom care plans, including following hospital-provided discharge plans and rehab for the elderly after hospital stay, all in the comfort and privacy of home.

Challenges of rehabilitation

Rehabilitation after an injury or illness can be a complicated process, especially for senior rehab. The time immediately following release from the hospital is a critical phase of recovery.

In addition to physical challenges, patients can experience depression or anxiety caused by social isolation and a change to their normal routine. And, due to the current health crisis, we understand that more people may be recovering at home following a hospitalization.

Trained in infectious disease control and senior care, our caregivers can help those in recovery stay safely in the comfort of home and reduce the risk of re-injury or hospital readmission by following discharge care plans.

We can also provide respite care or a short period of relief for family members and other primary caregivers. After a major surgery or hospital stay, it is common for family to temporarily move-in, or make arrangements to have their loved one move in with them. This compassionate change in routine can be stressful and overwhelming. Our trained caregivers can step in to allow primary caregivers to take a much-needed break and recharge.

3 Reasons Sugar Land Seniors Need to Consider Transitional Home Care Service

The road to recovery can be a difficult one for seniors. After a procedure, one may need to spend an extended period of time in the hospital. Even after this, they may need some assistance going back to their normal at-home lives. This is why many people seek professional help. Here are a few things you should know about post-hospital at home care service.

  • It's Very Affordable: In many cases, at home care service comes with a minimal out-of-pocket cost. Long term care Insurance companies often pay for all or part of the care if it's needed. In other words, if the doctor requires that you have this type of post-hospital care, then your long term care insurance may cover the majority of the cost. Make sure to ask your insurance company if they will cover the costs, you may be pleasantly surprised.

    Depending on your insurance company, there may be coverage available for at home care service under certain conditions as well. Even without health insurance coverage, home care service is more affordable than a skilled nursing facility.
  • Professional Level of Care: Well-meaning relatives often offer to provide post-hospital care, and while it's a very generous offer, it comes with a wide range of potential problems. For one, caregiver burnout is a real risk. Additionally, when family members are providing the care, their own life obligations often fall to the wayside. Further, family members are often untrained in proper care techniques.

    Many seniors find it difficult to ask family members for help with certain activities like personal grooming, assistance with toileting, and other very personal functions. It can be awkward for both the patient and the family member. Unfortunately, this may lead to certain care being neglected simply because the senior is too embarrassed to ask for help.

    Hiring a professional to manage post-hospital care is the best way to ensure family members don't become overwhelmed and that the patient gets the best level of care. It can be a lot of pressure for a family member to manage things like wound care, med checks, and other necessary care. On the other hand, a professional is highly skilled and trained. They know what it takes to help someone recuperate successfully at home.
  • The Care Is Customized to Your Needs: Everyone experiences recovery a little differently. This is because everyone’s situation and needs are unique. Thankfully, a major benefit of at home care services is that they can be tailored to the patient's specific needs. For example, some patients will need physical therapy, while other patients may have longer recovery periods and need help with things like personal grooming or toileting. Others still may be ready to get up and move right after returning from the hospital but need things like shopping assistance and transportation to the doctors.

    One of the best reasons to choose home care services is that the services can be customized to meet nearly any need. The patient is evaluated, doctor's orders are reviewed, and family input is used to come up with a plan that meets the patient's and the family's needs.
