Post Hospital Care
As your loved one leaves the hospital, what can you expect during your transition to home?
As a loved one returns home from an extended stay in the hospital, this period is an important time of transition for the individual and family members. While being discharged may create the sense that the level of care can ease, it is often the time that requires the most amount of attention usually leading to post-hospital care. Within the first 90 days of going home, many seniors are readmitted to the hospital due to overextending themselves, failing to take medication or not recognizing when they need post-hospital care assistance. It’s because of this vulnerable period that many seniors need an extra amount of care to eventually reach their goal of becoming independent again.
It is about feeling safe and comfortable with a trusted home care provider coming into your home and assisting you with the most sensitive and attentive post-hospital care. Our Care Director and Case Manager will work with you and your family to create a customized care plan that is specifically designed to meet your individual needs with a perfectly matched caregiver, ensuring continuity of care.
Don’t let yourself or a loved one go by another day without professional help. We are on stand-by and committed to providing trusted and industry-recognized Post Hospital Care Services today. Our Post Hospital Care Plan’s are carefully prepared with a thorough and personable, complimentary assessment.
Discharge From Hospital & Building Strength
This period will often set the pace for the post-hospital recovery time that will follow. If the right amount of care and preparation is given in advance, a loved one will be better equipped to get by on their own.
With the assistance of a Home Care Assistant or Care-Aide from Loving Home Care Services, individuals are given the best care right before they even step back into their home. We will meet you in the hospital, speak with the nurses and over-seeing Doctors to discuss what services will be needed to ensure a safe trip home, and a smooth transition into home and health care. Every precautionary step is taken to create a seamless transition back into the comforts of home.

From Hospital Care To Home Care
Many individuals take great comfort in being accustomed to their daily routine.

The recovery process can be emotionally challenging not just for the individual, but for the whole family.
This is why at Loving Home Care Services we provide the highest level of medical care while also ensuring that your loved one retains the familiar touch-at-home that they depend upon.
