Recovering from a major illness or surgical procedure can be challenging…no matter your age.
Today, hospitals frequently discharge patients too early, often before they are able to take care of themselves at home. This puts these patients and their families in a precarious position. Unfortunately, it isn’t always practical or possible for family members to accommodate their recovery needs.
Professional surgical recovery home care and sick or injury recovery care services can be the perfect answer to this significant dilemma. In Rockville, home care services from Comfort Home Care allow patients to live safely and comfortably at home while getting the assistance they need.
What Is Surgical Recovery Home Care?
Post-surgery or post-illness home health care is designed to help the patient get back on their feet (figuratively and, often, literally).
In years past, hospitals had the ability to allow patients to stay long enough to regain their ability to handle the activities of daily living, or ADLs. These activities include tasks such as bathing, dressing, toileting, eating, and regaining mobility. Unfortunately, hospitals today typically don’t have the flexibility to allow patients to stay long enough. The patient’s inability to handle some or all of the ADLs can make it unsafe or impossible for them to live at home without assistance.
Recovery home care provides professional health care aides to assist with these activities. This care can be supplemental support of family members who are acting as the primary caregivers or as the home health aide can be the primary level of assistance for the recovering patient.
Benefits of Having Sick & Injury Recovery Care
Home care can be invaluable for the recovering person and their loved ones. Family members may not have the time or ability to provide the required level of assistance. They might live out of town or have work obligations that prevent them from delivering all the necessary care and help. This adds additional stress to the recovering patient as well as the family members who are trying to juggle schedules and obligations.
Using a professional home care agency to supplement a primary caregiver – or as a source of primary caregiving – can provide peace of mind and reduce stress for everyone.
Professional home health aides have the knowledge and experience necessary to handle the recovering person’s needs with regards to ADLs, even assisting patients to engage in their favorite activities, hobbies, and outings.
