South East Melbourne Post-Hospital Care – Promoting a Faster Recovery
When an elderly patient is hospitalised for a medical procedure or illness, their recovery can be lengthy and painful. If your elderly parent or loved one has recently received hospital treatment, Home Care Assistance offers Post-Hospital Home Assistance Care that promotes a faster recovery for seniors in the comfort of their home.
Avoid Hospital Readmission with Post Hospital Care
After being discharged from the hospital, 35% of seniors are readmitted after only 90 days. For seniors, hospital readmission is usually a result of not following doctor’s recommendations or medication instructions or a poor recovery environment. Home Care Assistance South East Melbourne provides home care tailored to meet the needs of individual patients in post hospital recovery.
Post-Hospital Care can be implemented before our clients are discharged from the hospital to help ensure a smooth transition. If your loved one is staying in an assisted living facility or a nursing home, our caregivers can provide 24 Hours Assistance with personal care.
Home Care Assistance caregivers are professionally trained and experienced in providing post hospital care for seniors. We offer hourly care and live-in home care to accommodate whatever level of care is required. We help our clients avoid readmission and have a faster recovery period by ensuring our clients:
- Follow their medication administration schedule prescribed by their doctor
- Attend all follow up appointments
- Eat an appropriate diet and participate in therapy exercises
- Receive encouragement, support and companionship throughout the recovery process
