At Assisting Hands® Home Care, we offer after-surgery home care services in Palm Beach Gardens, FL, to help adults and seniors safely transition back home after undergoing a surgery, a hospital stay, or therapy at a rehab facility. Our professional caregivers help make the transition home easier and ensure that clients follow their discharge orders to prevent rehospitalizations.
After a hospital stay for an illness or surgery, many adults and elderly individuals may discover that making the transition home is tough. At the time of discharge, few people are back to full strength, which makes caring for oneself difficult. In addition, in many instances there are special instructions such as follow up medical appointments, prescriptions for new medications, and medical equipment. If you neglect discharge orders or try too hard, then you could easily end up back in the hospital. Transitional care will help you or your loved one make a full recovery at home.
