Transitioning Home Care for Seniors in Las Vegas, NV
Find out how transitioning home care allows seniors to safely return from the hospital to their normal lives.
Family members often rejoice when they get the news that a senior loved one gets to go home from the hospital. The senior is typically quite joyful as well. Yet, after spending time in a hospital setting, seniors may find that they are returning home with feelings of weakness, confusion, or pain. They may not be fully mobile or may even be bedridden for a time. Others will require wound care, physical or occupational therapy, or other forms of physical assistance. For seniors who live alone or who live with a companion who cannot provide the level of assistance they need, a home transition may be far less joyful than one would anticipate. The good news is that transitioning home care services by Comfort Keepers can make it easier for senior citizens to recover comfortably and safely at home.
The Benefits of Transitioning Home Care in Las Vegas, NV
Statistically, seniors who take advantage of transitioning home care services face fewer hospital readmissions, recover faster, and avoid complications associated with medication management. Caregivers not only help seniors with daily living activities, but they also assist seniors in communicating with physicians and other members of their care team. This is very important because seniors often return home after a hospital stay or medical procedure without a thorough understanding of what is required to recover safely and beneficially at home.
Comfort Keepers transitioning home care ranges from assistance with household chores and housekeeping to meal preparation, transportation, and personal care tasks, such as bathing and grooming, transferring and positioning, eating support, and incontinence care. Caregivers may also pick up prescriptions from the pharmacy and help seniors with their medication management plan.
Prior to a senior's arrival at home, caregivers can go through the home to remove hazards that might lead to a trip or fall. They may also set up a temporary bedroom on a main floor so the senior can avoid climbing stairs.
Once fully recovered, many seniors decide to continue with care services. With Comfort Keepers, this is as simple as meeting with a senior care coordinator to design an individualized care plan that caters to his or her needs and preferences.
