Hospital Discharge Services

To aid your loved one’s recovery, hospital discharge services can assist them in adhering to orders from a doctor or specialist. Caregivers offer post-hospital care with a flexible schedule that works around your needs. Homewatch CareGivers understands that any road to recovery is difficult, so our caregivers create a supporting and reassuring environment when providing hospital discharge services and after surgery home care. We know that hospital discharges can happen on very short notice so Homewatch CareGivers is ready to be there whenever you need.

 Homewatch CareGivers can provide round-the-clock care in the short or long term as a person recovers from a hospital stay, including when your loved one needs dementia care. Hospital discharge services include a free evaluation to look for fall risks in your loved one’s home. Medication errors cause many readmissions for those who need hospital discharge services, so our caregivers help your loved one safely manage their medicines. Hospital discharge services include transportation to and from your loved one’s follow-up medical appointments, and caregivers can listen, take notes, and pass information along to the family.

After Rehabilitation Care

The care we provide to those rehabilitating is customized to the individual’s specific needs and wants, the discharge plan received at the hospital, and is always sensitive to the diagnosis and condition of the client.  Our in home caregiver services help fill in the gaps between the skilled physical and occupational therapy visits as well as skilled home health nursing visits to the home. Trained and compassionate caregivers offer safety, companionship and peace of mind that the client is eating and hydrating well, maintaining good hygiene, staying connected to others, and taking medications appropriately.

After Heart Surgery

Reliable home care services you can trust are not only valuable during your hospital discharge, but also during the 6-8 week recovery interval following a major heart surgery. Pain management will be a full-time focus, some assistance with bathing and dressing is typically required and driving is prohibited, as are running your own errands.  Homewatch CareGivers Hospital Discharge Services can help you get back on your feet.

After Joint Replacement

After joint replacement surgery, regular care needs may be intense for several days, even weeks. In-Home caregivers can be there to fill in the gaps while you recover with flexible shifts and compassionate care. Keeping up with medications, encouraging completion of prescribed physical therapy regimes and keeping overall health strong through proper nutrition and hydration are primary aspects of the hospital discharge plan after a joint replacement surgery.
