Transitioning Home Care
Comfort Keepers® of Flemington, NJ can ease your loved one's transition from the hospital or rehabilitation facility to home, which can lead to a better, more comfortable recovery.
The time immediately following release from the hospital (also known as the postoperative period) is a critical phase of the recovery process. Studies show a lack of proper care and support after a surgery can lead to slower recuperation. In fact, there is a substantial risk of readmission due to serious complications, such as infection, blood clots, or reopening an incision. This is why it is important to have a thorough postoperative care plan in place before transitioning home.
Family members often take on the task of caring for a loved one after a hospital or rehabilitation facility stay, but can find they are untrained or ill prepared to meet the physical and emotional challenges of such care. As your loved one recovers from an injury, a battle with an illness, or a surgery, it is critical to follow their physician's orders, and recovery plan. Without the proper treatment and care during this period, your loved one’s recovery can be slowed or they may even need to be re-hospitalized. Comfort Keepers® of Flemington, NJ can help. We offer services to ease the transition home with our transitional care services. We will help ease the transition back to a normal life and assist with a quick, full recovery.
