According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), nearly 700,000 Americans "develop infections during a hospital stay, and about 75,000 die...that’s more than twice the number of people who die each year in car crashes." Contrast this with the data suggesting that seniors who recuperate from illnesses and injuries at home recover faster, happier, and with a greatly reduced risk of infection and re-hospitalization. Despite the many advantages of in-home recovery, however, seniors may still question their ability to safely remain at home when they need to rehabilitate after hospitalization.
Some of the main concerns include
While Comfort Keepers of San Diego cannot make a home larger, caregivers can provide a home safety inspection and even make suggestions that may make the home more accessible. They can also provide the necessary in-home support and services necessary for seniors to safely recover in the comfort, convenience, and familiarity of their own home; and local transportation, including making sure seniors get to and from their appointments, is not a problem.
To ensure the best possible in home senior care, elders are carefully matched with a skilled Comfort Keepers caregiver. Using their trademarked Interactive Caregiving model, caregivers meaningfully interact with seniors while assisting them with daily living activities such as light housekeeping, laundry, and meal preparation. In home senior care can also assist with medication management, run errands, and provide local transportation so your loved one is sure to make it safely to and from their appointments. Personal care supports range from wound care, personal hygiene, and transferring and positioning to toileting, eating assistance, bathing, grooming, and dressing.
