You Just Got Mom Home and Want Her to Stay Healthy

You Just Got Mom Back Home

So Mom or Dad has just had surgery. You are relieved to have them home and they are just happy to be back in a familiar environment as well. You breathe a sigh of relief and start getting back on your regular work schedule.

Nowhere in this scenario do you want to even consider a hospital readmission. It's not even on your radar.

The Reality of Hospital Readmission

The reality is hospital readmission is quite common in seniors, particularly when there is lack of support at home after a hospital visit. Why is that? Is that our parents think they can do more than they are ready for when they return home? Is that we think we can piece together coverage for them with relatives, friends well-meaning neighbors?

Very often those plans work well in our minds, but once in place, resources are lacking in significant ways. We have a "Hospital to Home Care" program. This includes resources for families in the transition to home. It can be difficult, and the difficulties unexpected. You can manage each step of the process more easily with adequate knowledge and planning. Discharge can be stressful.

Recovery in the comfort of your home is comfortable and familiar. It can be both psychologically and emotionally easier. Of course, avoiding infection risk is an important part of this, and so much easier in the home than another institution. The freedom of your own furniture and familiar decor means a lot. With the help of a caregiver for the most needed hours of the day, a family can balance their own loving support with hours that can be workable. Stressing beyond limits of loving family members must be avoided, and 24-hour care could still be needed.

Dedicated Professional Support Can Help

Dedicated one-on-one support from trained professionals can give a family the peace of mind that makes the entire process both affordable and successful.

Visit www.HospitaltoHomeCare.com for some tips for discharge planning and home recovery. The information on the various people involved in the discharge process can be very illuminating and help you manage these decisions. Going into the process uninformed can lead you to decisions that don't turn out well for your loved one, if you don't have the right support. A guide to the best options for post-hospitalization care and resources is available for download.

The third book in our popular senior wellness series, From Hospital to Home Care: A Step by Step Guide to Providing Care to Patients Post Hospitalization provides a comprehensive overview of the challenges and resources associated with each step in the transition from hospital to home. Our goal at Home Care Assistance is to provide high-quality, in-home care to reduce hospital readmissions and increase independence for our clients.
