That is why Comfort Keepers® offers professional caregivers to ease the transition home with in home health care services. Call us in Vancouver, WA at (360) 334-3974.

Transitioning Home with Comfort Keepers
Many of us have returned home after a hospital stay and have been surprised at how challenging it is to keep up with daily household chores. Imagine how much more difficult this can be after a significant illness or injury and the extra strain it puts on the elderly. At Comfort Keepers, we specialize in temporary adult home care to ease the transition from hospital to home.
It Takes Time to Heal
Healing is often not complete upon discharge from a medical facility, such as PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center. Sometimes the process takes weeks or even months before we can comfortably take on our regular meal preparation routine, housekeeping, and personal grooming. If you have a loved one recently hospitalized, consider transitional care to promote complete recovery and safety once they return home.
Comfort Keepers offers senior care that is customized to each individual’s needs. For transitional care, this may mean that initial care is around the clock and includes a wide array of in-home services. As healing continues and mobility is improved, transitional care can be reduced, and independence encouraged. Our objective is to ensure that each person has the help they need when they need it to create an ideal environment for healing.
Each caregiver at Comfort Keepers is more than a helping hand. They also provide companionship that is essential to healing and quality of life. When you decide to use Comfort Keepers for transitional care, you provide your loved one with a friend that will care for them as if they were a member of your own family.
