Elderly Care in Auburn, AL
Comfort Keepers offers elderly care for those coming home from the hospital in Auburn, AL
Anyone who has ever been in the hospital will tell you how good it is to be back home. The noises, lights, and lack of privacy make it difficult to feel comfortable recovering. Once you are home and in your own bed you can finally get some rest and start to feel like life is going back to normal. When seniors come home from the hospital they may still need a bit of help for the recovery process to go smoothly. It is for this reason that Comfort Keepers of Opelika, AL offers transitioning care as a part of their elderly care services.
Why Your Loved One Might Need Transitioning Care
When your loved one has had surgery, been ill, or had an injury, it can amplify existing mobility issues. This is one of the biggest reasons why elderly care during a time of transitioning should be considered. By having a caregiver on hand, your loved one is less likely to be at risk of an injury that could send them back to the hospital.
If your loved one has had surgery it is vital to keep incisions clean and dressed to reduce the risk of infection. Because your loved one is a senior, wounds can take longer to heal and they can be at more of a risk of infection. Mobility, recovery, and overall health may even prevent your loved one from caring for their surgical incisions properly. Having a caregiver from Comfort Keepers can help ensure that wounds are properly cared for.
Other reasons why transitioning elderly care might be a good idea is if your loved one has any medical conditions that need to be closely monitored, any medications they may need help remembering to take, and ensuring that they get the proper personal hygiene and nutrition care following a stay in the hospital. Running errands, taking seniors to doctors’ appointments, and helping with day to day tasks such as laundry are all good reasons to make sure your loved one has a bit of helping hand when they come home from the hospital.
