After undergoing a surgery or recovering from an illness or injury, aging adults and their family members can count on Fort Myers Home Care Assistance to provide excellent post-hospital care in the comfort of home. When seniors receive a low level of support after being discharged from the hospital, they often have a much slower recovery or are readmitted to the hospital. Home Care Assistance Fort Myers has developed a Transition Home Package™ that helps seniors readjust to life at home during the 72 hours immediately following a stay in the hospital. This package was specifically designed to help family caregivers effectively plan for their loved one’s discharge, which offers peace of mind and ensures a safe and smooth transition to home for the senior.
Many seniors and their families experience a great deal of stress and anxiety as they attempt to arrange for in-home care following a discharge from the hospital. Our trusted Care Managers are here to alleviate these concerns and assist you during every step in your loved one’s transition from the hospital to the comfort of home. They are available 24/7 to explain the discharge process and provide your family with information on the most common issues associated with certain health conditions.
At Home Care Assistance of Fort Myers, FL, we believe it’s important to customize each post-hospital care plan to meet each individual senior’s needs. If your loved one needs help with medication reminders and household chores or simply requires transportation to medical appointments, our dedicated caregivers can assist with these and many other tasks. Our post-hospital care plans are completely flexible. We offer both hourly and live-in care, which allows seniors and their families to choose a schedule they feel comfortable with.
For some seniors, the recovery process can be lengthy. Our caregivers can continue to evaluate your loved one’s safety at home for as long as necessary. Our care team can also provide regular status updates on your loved one’s progress. Caring for an aging loved one after a hospital stay can be overwhelming, which is why we keep you informed and include you in the process of your loved one’s care. Our Care Managers can be reached around the clock to address your concerns and answer your questions.
More than 35 percent of people who are discharged from a hospital are readmitted within 90 days, often because of improperly taking medications, overexerting themselves, and not attending follow-up appointments. If you want your loved one to avoid this situation, reach out to Fort Myers Home Care Assistance. We can help your loved one maintain independence and a high quality of life right at home.
