Elder Care Services & Transitional Care in Waco, TX
Let Comfort Keepers help your senior transition home from the hospital with elder care services
If you provide care for your senior loved one then you know that even at the best of times the job of providing elder care is a difficult one. Now that your loved one has spent time in the hospital after an illness or surgery you are wondering if you are going to have the hours in the day or the skills to help them when they come home. You are right to worry. Transitioning care is critically important to your loved one’s recovery and making sure it goes smoothly can ensure they do not need to make a repeat visit.
Should You Get Professional Help
Aside from the commitment of time, you may wonder if you need professional help to aid in their recovery? Even though the hospital is releasing them, your loved one may still need care that you are not experienced enough to provide. Whether you need to bring in an extra set of hands or not will largely depend on why your loved one was in the hospital and their overall health. Even if you have cared for your loved one before this, there are certain things you may not think about or realize that could compromise your senior’s fragile health.
If your loved one has had surgery, was in the hospital for an extended chronic illness, or had an injury chances are good they may need extra help with mobility, positioning, or ensuring their safety. The first step will be to talk to your loved one’s doctor or nurse to find out what sort of special care your loved one might need. Comfort Keepers of Waco, TX can help you determine if an experienced caregiver may be able to help give your senior a boost in recovering faster with the help of elder care.
