Having surgery is scary enough, coming home should not add to the stress. Assisting Hands provides post-operative and post-illness care so you can safely return to the comfort of your own home.
Pain and new medications can lead to unexpected consequences and having a professionally trained caregiver provide additional support and safety, even if it’s for just for the first few days after discharge. They also take the burden off your spouse and children so they don’t have to worry about managing your care all by themselves. Our caregivers can help for any length of time, from short transitional care to staying as long as they are needed.
Having a professional caregiver during the transition home after hospitalization also helps reduce hospital readmissions because they help ensure patients are following treatment plans set forth by doctors and raise the flag when something is not quite right with a patient such as a discomfort, not eating correctly or not sleeping well. This helps reduce hospital readmission penalties and keep health care costs down by bringing a patient problem to light before it becomes an urgent, more complicated issue.
In fact, post-operative care is the very reason our president and owner entered the home care business!
