In Home Care Services For Recovering Seniors In Las Vegas, NV

Jul 5, 2018 by Comfort Keepers

Seniors in Las Vegas, NV can recover more quickly with the help of in home care services

Many families worry that their senior loved one's home is not a safe or appropriate location for rehabilitation after a hospital stay. The reality is that many seniors require weeks or months of rehab after hospitalization, including physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech therapy. Because of the condition that placed them in the hospital and is now requiring rehabilitation, seniors may be unable to perform any number of daily living tasks, may have limited mobility, and could require assistance getting to and from therapy sessions and follow-up appointments. In addition to these concerns, families must think about several logistical issues:

  • Is the home large enough to accommodate bulky medical equipment or a hospital-style bed?
  • Can a senior use a walker or wheelchair given the home's current design?
  • Can the senior access the kitchen, bathroom, etc. given their current mobility?
  • Are family members or friends able to help with daily living activities and transportation?

Too often, based on the answers to these questions, seniors end up spending time in a skilled care facility, nursing home, or even get moved into an assisted living community. Thankfully, with Comfort Keepers of Las Vegas, there is another option.
