Transitional Elder Care in Frisco, TX
Learn how transitional elder care helps seniors safely move home after a long hospital stay and avoid a return visit.
When seniors transition home from the hospital they are typically in a weakened state and may not be at their best cognitively or emotionally. Many seniors also face mobility challenges, confusion, pain, and other circumstances that can make it difficult for them to properly care for themselves at home. While many seniors have the support of family members or friends who can see them through this time of transition, half of all American seniors currently lack this level of family or social support. This is where Comfort Keepers transitioning elder care comes in.
What Are The Benefits Of Transitional Elder Care in Frisco, TX?
Studies show that seniors who recuperate at home can reduce their risk of hospital readmission and enjoy faster recovery times than those who do so in an institutional setting. Sadly, these numbers are often offset by those who are readmitted due to medication management errors, missed follow-up appointments, and a lack of adherence to discharge instructions. Seniors who take advantage of Comfort Keepers transitioning home care have help communicating with physicians and other members of their care team, have a thorough understanding of what is required to recover, and have the support necessary to live a healthy and safe life at home.
Standard transitioning home care assistance includes a variety of housekeeping and personal care tasks ranging from bathing and grooming to transferring and positioning, feeding and special diet support, incontinence care, and light housekeeping. Caregivers can also run errands, do the shopping, and provide transportation to follow-up doctor’s appointments and/or trips to an occupational or physical therapist.
Seniors often find that in-home support services greatly increase their quality of life. With Comfort Keepers, many seniors can keep many of the elder care services even after they have recovered.
