Assisting Hands Home Care provides after-surgery care services to help seniors and adults in University Park, Texas who are transitioning back home following a surgery, hospital stay, or rehab stint. Our caregivers will help make the transition between the hospital, rehab, and home easier and ensure that your loved ones follow discharge instructions to avoid rehospitalization.
For senior citizens and many adults, making the transition back home after being in the hospital for a surgery or illness is not easy. Few people are at full strength when they are discharged, and they may have difficulty taking care of themselves. If those released from the hospital try to do too much or don’t follow their discharge instructions, there is a good chance they can hurt themselves and end up back in the hospital. Working with a home care provider can help ensure that you or your loved ones get the transitional care needed when returning home.
