Adult Home Care Assists Families with Transitioning Home Services in Federal Way, WA
Ease your loved one’s transition from the hospital or rehabilitation facility with adult home care
It can be a real challenge for senior citizens to transition back home following a short or long hospital stay. Since they will likely feel weak and confused, they will have a tough time caring for themselves once they return home. When older adults are unable to properly care for themselves, they increase their chances of getting readmitted to the hospital. Comfort Keepers Hospital-to-Home adult home care services can help ease this transition for a fast, safer, recovery.
Transitioning Home Services Lead to Safer, Quicker Recoveries
Our senior care services can be tailored to meet the needs of seniors transitioning home after a hospital visit or major medical events. Thanks to our transitioning home services, your senior loved can enjoy a safe and quick recovery, while reducing their risk of hospital readmission.
A Variety of Service Offerings
If you do decide that transitioning home makes sense for your senior loved one, you can expect a caregiver or Comfort Keeper to visit their home so that a variety of services can be provided. A Comfort Keeper may support your older adult with the following:
- Bathing, grooming, personal hygiene
- Other personal adult home care tasks.
- Shopping for groceries
- Preparing well-balanced, nutritious meals
- Running errands
- Cleaning the house
Additionally, a Comfort Keeper can pick up prescriptions for your senior, make sure they are taken on time, and provide dependable transportation to doctor’s appointments.
Collaboration with Medical Providers
Comfort Keepers often collaborate with doctors, nurses, physical therapists, and other members of your senior’s medical team so that they know what is involved in your senior’s recovery plan. This will allow them to educate your older loved one on what can and cannot be done once they return home.
Due to the fact that fatigue and weakness are not uncommon among seniors who have just returned home from the hospital, a Comfort Keeper caregiver can ensure that your senior stays safe and avoids trips and falls that may warrant another hospital stay. They may perform a thorough walkthrough of their home and remove any items that may be hazardous.
Care After Recovery
Many senior citizens choose to continue to use us as a home care provider after they’ve recovered. If you and your older adult believe that continuing services is a good idea, we’d be happy to design a customized care plan that will enable them to live an independent and fulfilling life at home.

HOSPITALIZATION HAPPENS: KNOW YOUR OPTIONS & RESOURCES
Whether it's a planned hospital stay or an emergency, the actual discharge process can be a whirlwind of tough decisions. You may need housing, rehabilitation or home care. Because of changes in Medicare funding rules, much of the care will not be at the hospital but provided after you are discharged. Educating yourself on options will ease your stress level during your road to recovery. Learn how to be the best advocate for yourself or a loved one. Planning and Advanced Directives will also be discussed.
