Comfort Keepers Transitioning Home Care in Murietta, CA
Learn how transitioning home care helps seniors readjust to living at home after a hospital stay.
The most difficult part of recovering from an accident or illness often comes after the discharge from the hospital, especially for seniors. For many, the transition between hospital and home can be very difficult as they face challenges adhering to a recovery regimen, performing household duties, and even keeping up with personal care.
Older adults are more likely to live alone without a social support network, and many are too embarrassed to ask for help when transitioning home. Even seniors who have the support of family member and friends may find that it is not enough. Seniors should understand that receiving professional transitioning home care is not a sign of weakness, but of wisdom.
The Benefits of Transitioning Home Care in Murietta, CA
Comfort Keepers transitioning home care is designed to help seniors successfully adjust to the move from the hospital back to their home. Caregivers are specially trained to provide the highest quality transitioning care, which ranges from personal hygiene and dressing support, transferring and positioning, and toileting to grocery shopping, meal preparation, and transportation to and from follow-up appointments.
Many seniors end up being readmitted to the hospital soon after their initial discharge because of inadequate follow-up care, missed medications, and dietary issues. With Comfort Keepers transitioning home care, the likelihood of these issues arising is significantly decreased. In fact, seniors who receive care at home are dramatically less likely to be readmitted to the hospital for complications, and are far less likely to be readmitted due to secondary infections.
Once seniors have recovered and transitioning home care is no longer necessary, many seniors want to continue with care services. With Comfort Keepers, this is as easy as contacting a senior care coordinator and creating a personalized plan of care.
