Safely Transitioning Seniors from a Hospital Stay Back Home
It’s time to go home, and although you should be excited the social workers and discharge planners are now telling you that it is in your best interests to go to rehabilitation. Perhaps that is true, but you are stubborn and feel your healing would be best accomplished in the comfort of your own home. It could be that you are discharged straight home but with specific guidelines, however, your loved ones may be worried that you are not strong enough to complete everything independently.
The good news is the staff at Creative Caregivers is equipped to step in and safely transition you or your senior loved one from a hospital stay back to the comfort of home. Whether it be assisting with the transition from a hospital stay or rehabilitation, or providing assistance with stability, gait, and balance issues or if they need assistance with activities of daily living such as meal preparation and bathing, we are here. It is the first 72 hours after discharging a patient that readmission often occurs. Our goal is to ensure that does not happen.
A complimentary assessment can help insure that your home is safe, and a plan of care is created to adequately work in conjunction with your discharge goals. Seniors in Sarasota deserve a chance to safely recuperate after a hospital stay, while enjoying the comfort and independence that living in their own home provides. If you have an aging loved one that might benefit from our home care services in Sarasota, call Creative Caregivers toll free today at: 1 (888) 530-4909, and we’ll promptly schedule an initial FREE in-home assessment to discuss your senior’s needs.
