We can help to create smooth transitions from hospital to home or home to hospital for you and your loved ones. The same goes for the transitions to and from nursing homes, rehabilitation facilities, outpatient surgeries and any other major treatment facilities and procedures.
Seniors and others with special needs can feel extremely vulnerable when transitioning from home to a new setting, when coming home after a surgery or serious medical procedure, or when dealing with physical therapy that can be part of outpatient treatment after a fall, an injury or an illness requiring hospitalization.
Many individuals who are discharged from hospitals are readmitted, oftentimes in less than a month. An important goal of our transitional care services is to prevent readmissions. That means we work closely with your loved one to ensure that they stay out of the hospital through a diligent, hands-on and personal approach to care.
Some of the ways we prevent readmissions include:
- Helping prevent falls.
- Providing transportation to appointments.
- Preparing and serving meals.
- Helping improve the safety of the living environment.
- Performing light housekeeping.
- Answering the door, receiving packages and other home monitoring.
- Running errands.
- Monitoring medications.
Our staff is trained to help ease the stress of changing circumstances and surroundings, with the comfort of a friendly face and the solid support of RN-directed care and treatment designed especially for him or her. We not only consider your loved one’s medical needs, we assess their personality, life circumstances, preferences and unique needs. This helps us ensure that your loved one will receive great care that meets them where they are.
At Professional Caretakers we are dedicated to ensuring that your loved one has as much support as possible. That is why transitional care is so important to us. We work with you and your loved one to ensure that they are safe and comfortable, and help them thrive in their new environment. During times like thes sometimes you feel like you can’t do it all, but with the help of our experienced caretakers, you can rest easy knowing that your loved one will have the consistent attention and care they need.
