Post-Hospitalization & Post-Surgical Care in Jacksonville
According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, about 13.8 million individuals 65 years of age or older were discharged from hospital stays in 2009-2010. Many of these senior family members are confronted with mental and physical challenges when they return home. Studies have shown that a lack of proper support and at-home care following a surgery (or serious hospitalization) can lead to much slower recovery or readmission to the hospital. In fact, nearly one in five seniors are readmitted to the hospital within 30 days of being discharged.. and often for a different condition.
If your loved one suffers from memory loss or struggles to read fine print, it can be very difficult for them to remember or follow the doctor’s instructions. Most often there will be new medications to manage and follow-up appointments to keep that can become confusing and stressful. After your loved one’s discharge, you can count on All At Home Care to provide attentive, compassionate healthcare services to ensure a speedy recovery while your elder remains in their home. Our healthcare staff is excellent at developing a close relationship that builds trust and makes the senior more receptive to participating in patient education.
We will create a personalized care plan to meet your loved one’s unique needs for a speedy recovery. Our care giver will then make timely observations and assessments to determine if additional medical care is indicated. As part of the client’s recovery process, we can also provide IV therapies, specialized wound care, ostomy or trach instructions, catheter care and medication management as well as physical therapy and occupational therapy to restore mobility and encourage the resumption of their daily activities.
The time immediately following the release from a hospital stay or out-patient surgery is critical for a senior’s transition to a full recovery. All At Home health care can lessen the patient’s discomfort and reduce his or her healing time.
