Find out how the in home supportive services provided through transitioning care help seniors in Kensington, CA to avoid return trips to the hospital.
Transitioning home care services reduce a senior's risk of hospital readmission, speed up recovery times, and increase the overall quality of life. This is especially true for seniors who live alone or who do not have family or friends who are able to provide the level or extent of care they require to recuperate at home safely after a hospital stay or medical procedure.
In Home Supportive Services in Kensington, CA Provide a Safe Hospital to Home Transition.
Many times, when seniors leave the hospital they are weaker than normal or may not be at their best cognitively. Even when this is the result of medication that will fade over time, it is generally recommended that during the first 24 to 48 hours at home there is some level of supervision and support. Without this support, many seniors need to spend time in a convalescent home or nursing facility. With transitioning home care and other in home supportive services provided by Comfort Keepers, however, seniors can recover comfortably and safely at home.
Many accidents happen because of impaired mobility or medication errors. Comfort Keepers caregivers work with seniors to provide the support and services required to help them recover quickly and live a healthy life at home following a hospital stay.
Standard in home supportive services included with transitioning home care cover tasks such as light housekeeping, laundry, and meal preparation. Personal care is also available, such as bathing and grooming support, transferring and positioning, incontinence care, and dressing. Caregivers may also provide local transportation to ensure seniors get back and forth to follow-up doctor’s appointments and/or trips to an occupational or physical therapist. As part of medication management support, transitioning home care providers can also pick up prescriptions from the pharmacy and ensure they are taken on time in the correct dosage amounts.
