Does My Senior Need Post Hospital Care Services?

By Doris Kasold, 9:31 am on

According to data collected from Medicare beneficiaries, one-fifth of elderly patients are re-hospitalized within the first month of being discharged. Post hospital care services are the best way to prevent your loved one from being readmitted to a Palm Harbor, Clearwater, Safety Harbor or Belleair emergency room again. At Home Care Assistance of Tampa Bay, it is our goal to provide you with peace of mind knowing your senior is receiving the best care possible!

Reasons to Seek Out Post Hospital Care Services

  1. It can be overwhelming on your own. Caring for your senior on your own after a trip the hospital can seem like a daunting task. Depending on the severity of the illness or accident, your elderly loved one may require a lot of extra assistance, especially if they have limited mobility. Some seniors may even require round the clock care, which leaves you with little time for anything else. By hiring a live in caregiver, you can focus on supporting your elderly loved emotionally and spiritually while leaving the physical care up to us!
  2. You won’t have to worry about medication management. Many Safety Harbor, Clearwater, Palm Harbor and Belleair seniors need to take medications several times a day. With post hospital care services, professional caregivers are trained to know when and how to administer medications. Our staff members have comprehensive knowledge of medication interactions and can easily spot any adverse reactions.
  3. Avoid Arguments. Coming home from the hospital can be overwhelming for seniors, especially when new medications and care routines are introduced. Some doctor’s care plans can be complicated and easily confuse your elderly loved one. That, along with the stress of change can lead to arguments between family members about how care routines should be managed. Professional post hospital care services can help reduce tension and avoid disagreements. Caregivers are trained to relieve stress and calm nervous patients. This way you can focus on spending quality time with your loved one and allow a professional to take care of the rest!
