Transitioning Home With Home Health Care in Colorado Springs, CO
Learn how seniors can stay safe when returning from the hospital with home health care.
After a senior loved one spends time in the hospital, they will likely return home with feelings of weakness, confusion, or anxiety. Many times, seniors are unsure about a physician’s instructions or the information concerning new medication they are to take. Other times, they are worried about their ability to move around the home safely, take care of daily tasks, or even perform personal care. Seniors who have family members who can help them out are fortunate; however, tens of millions of American seniors do not have this support.
Comfort Keepers transitioning home health care services can make it easier for senior citizens to recover comfortably and safely at home.
Transitioning home care can help seniors before, during, and after their transition. Before a senior even comes home, a transitioning home health care specialist will evaluate your senior loved one's home and compare it to the specific needs of the senior. For example, a senior who has had a hip replacement will not be able to climb stairs and will benefit from a temporary bedroom on the main floor. Caregivers will also help with household chores and personal care tasks, such as bathing and grooming, transferring and positioning, feeding and special diet, incontinence care, laundry, light housekeeping, grocery shopping, and meal preparation.
Transitioning home health care also includes transportation to and from follow-up doctor’s or therapy appointments, running errands, and picking up prescriptions from the pharmacy. Further, caregivers help ensure medications are taken on time and in the correct dosages.
Many times, seniors who have taken advantage of transitioning home health care will want to continue with in-home services. Some seniors may opt for a few hours of assistance each week while others may want more frequent care. With Comfort Keepers, this is as simple as contacting a client care coordinator to design a personalized care plan.
