Types of After-Hospital Care
After rehab or hospital discharge, the continuation of support at home reinforces treatment to get an individual back to doing the things he or she loves. Our qualified caregiving teams are fully trained for the transition from the hospital or skilled rehab center to home and are ready to provide support every step of the way.
Examples of elderly care after hospital discharge include:
Recovering from joint replacement surgery can make simple tasks challenging for several weeks, potentially even months. Post-hospital care for elderly joint replacement patients involves intense rehabilitation services like prescribed physical therapy exercises to improve strength and range of motion. This regimen continues at home after a stay in a skilled rehab facility.
Our after-rehab caregivers can help with medication reminders, encouragement to keep up with prescribed physical therapy regimens, as well as meal preparation that supports healthy nutrition and hydration to promote continued healing at home.
Heart Surgery or Cardiac Events
You or your loved one deserve reliable after-hospital care services during the recovery period after a major procedure. Outpatient cardiac rehab may last several weeks and involves monitoring responses to exercise, plus education about cardiovascular risk factors.
Once back in the comfort of home, following this program is essential to get you or your loved one back to enjoying life. This will include follow-up healthcare provider appointments and a heart-healthy lifestyle that may include major changes to diet and exercise.
Thanks to our skilled caregivers, these are changes no one needs to face alone. We can help with medication reminders, meal planning and preparation, and running errands since driving is generally prohibited post-surgery.
Following eye surgery, vision may not be reliable or functional for some time. Our care team can help with day-to-day tasks that you or someone you care for may not be able to do during the recovery period, including driving. We can also handle tasks to help eliminate the need for bending or lifting, which can put strain or pressure on the eye.
The occurrence of pneumonia after surgery is not very common, but the risk still exists and is often a result of anesthesia and lack of mobility. Patients are usually advised to practice deep breathing and coughing exercises after surgery, which expand the lungs to help prevent pneumonia. Maintaining a clean environment and encouraging good nutrition and hydration for better overall health are some of the ways our skilled after-hospital caregivers can assist with pneumonia prevention after major procedures.
