Homewatch CareGivers understands how critical a well planned hospital discharge can be. Our local offices can be integral throughout the transition home, whether this is a four hour event or for many days or weeks of assistance, and as flexible as needed. Our hospital discharge services help get clients safely home from a facility, easing back into daily routines as health conditions allow. Family members are not always available for the hospital discharge meeting with nursing staff, doctors and case managers; we understand the importance of having another set of eyes and ears to ensure nothing gets lost in translation. Getting back home after a medical procedure, surgery, or illness, can be a challenging process, with heaps of paperwork, hospital discharge instructions, medication requirements and various follow up appointments.
Our caregiver training and education programs are designed to continually broaden the skills and knowledge base of our care teams so that the hospital discharge process and ongoing services exceed the needs of the families we proudly serve. Caregivers trained to encourage active recovery while promoting compliance with the prescribed hospital discharge plan is important to a successful recovery process. The chances of being readmitted to a hospital after a procedure go down significantly with proper care and attention during the weeks following a hospital discharge. A holistic approach in developing the customized care plan considers emotional, physical, and social needs of our clients as they are interrelated and critical to overall well being.
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.
