Transitioning Home Care in Altamonte Springs, FL

Supportive transitioning home care for those beginning the recovery process.

Unfortunately, hospital readmissions are very common. The staggering statistics on readmissions prove how challenging transitioning home from a hospital stay can be. It can be extremely difficult and overwhelming for seniors who live alone, fail to opt for supportive services, and suffer from memory impairments as well as chronic conditions to transition home. Transitioning home care from Comfort Keepers is an effective way for aging adults to avoid hospital readmission and recover safely.

Transitioning Home Care in Altamonte Springs, FL

Every one of our caregivers or Comfort Keepers has completed a rigorous screening process and training program. They also participate in continuing education classes to stay up-to-date on transitioning home care. If you decide that transitioning home care makes sense for your aging loved one, a Comfort Keeper will collaborate with his or her medical team to stay informed on what is required for a speedy and safe recovery.

In almost every case, transitioning home care involves medication management. Since most patients will be prescribed a new medication routine after discharge, issues may arise if a senior is unable to remember or follow the new routine. A Comfort Keeper can assist with picking up prescriptions from the pharmacy and reminding your elder of when and how to take each medication.

Following a hospital stay, it’s likely that your senior will not be able to drive. If he or she needs transportation to follow-up appointments to the doctor, physical therapist, occupational therapist, speech therapist, or any other rehabilitation expert, a Comfort Keeper will be happy to provide it to them.

Seniors are typically weak and vulnerable to falls when they come home from a hospital stay. In order to prevent falls after returning home from the hospital, a Comfort Keeper can also conduct a home safety assessment to ensure that there is adequate lighting in every room, all tripping hazards are removed, and commonly used objects are within easy reach.

In addition, a caregiver can help out with household chores that may be difficult for an elder to complete alone. Some of these household chores include light housekeeping, laundry, grocery shopping, meal preparation, and errands running. Personal care tasks like bathing and grooming, toileting, and mobility assistance are often part of a transitioning home care plan as well.

Contact Comfort Keepers today if your loved one needs home health care services following a hospital stay. We look forward to creating an individualized care plan that will make the recovery process as easy as possible.
