When an elderly patient is hospitalized for a medical procedure or illness, their recovery can be lengthy and painful. If your elderly parent or loved one is scheduled to receive hospital treatment or has recently been admitted due to a fall, accident or illness, Home Care Assistance offers Hospital to Home Care that begins with a FREE Discharge Planning Consult in order to promote a faster recovery for seniors in the comfort of their home.
After being discharged from the hospital, 35% of seniors are readmitted after only 90 days.
For older adults, hospital readmission is frequently a result of not being able to follow the doctor’s diet, exercise, recovery, and medication prescriptions, orders, and recommendations after discharge.
The hospital can be an intimidating place for anyone facing an illness or recovering from an injury. Having around the clock or short shift one-on-one support can alleviate discomfort, speed up the recovery process and reduce instances of re-hospitalization after an older adult returns home.
Beginning with Hospital Sitting and continuing through Discharge Planning, the transition home and providing in-home care, our Client Care Managers and Caregivers cooperate with family members, medical professionals, and the hospital staff to create and deliver a customized service plan designed to increase comfort and hasten a successful recovery.
Our Client Care Manager and Caregivers can provide the support you need before you or your loved one is discharged from the hospital to help plan for and ensure a smooth transition. If your loved one is staying in the hospital, an assisted living facility, skilled nursing facility or a nursing home, our caregivers can provide short shift or 24-hour assistance with personal care.
We offer hourly care and live-in home care to accommodate whatever level of care is required. We help our clients avoid readmission and have a faster recovery period by ensuring our clients:
