Just because a loved one has been discharged from a hospital or other facility doesn’t mean they’re fully recovered. In most scenarios, it’s just the beginning of their journey.
Finding a daily routine that’s safe and manageable isn’t always easy, especially if a family is finding them in such a situation unexpectedly. Rather than succumb to stress and risk a potential re-admission, consider hiring an experienced caretaker like the local Evansville senior home care providers at Senior Helpers.
At Senior Helpers, we offer services to the areas around Newburgh, Boonville, and Evansville that make the transitional hospital to home phase easier on you and your loved one. Our Staying Home Safe™ approach is designed to help patients meet their recovery goals in a healthy and safe environment.
We believe recovery can’t happen without a plan. That's why we offer in-home assessments to learn exactly what your loved one needs to recover. We develop custom care plans around their unique condition and recovery goals. We combine companionship with personal care services focused on each client’s recovery plan.
We also believe in transparency and keep an open line of communication with family members. Whether positive or negative progress is taking place, we want to make sure you remain informed so you can take the appropriate steps to get your loved one’s recovery back on track.
Circles of Care
Your loved one’s recovery can only be as successful as the strength of their circle. This includes their doctors, nurses, care managers, and family members. We work with everyone within your family member’s Circle of Care while offering the following Newburgh, Boonville, and Evansville senior home care services.
Regular trips to the doctor are a common part of the recovery process. Our Newburgh, Boonville, and Evansville senior home caregivers make sure your loved one gets to the appointments they need to, whether we drive them or simply remind them of their commitments. We also provide transportation to tackle errands or even visit with family and friends.
Prescription Pickup and Reminders
Taking too much or too little of a prescription can delay recovery. We can help pick up medications at your loved one’s pharmacy and ensure they’re following dosage directions.
Developing and Implementing a Meal Plan
Nutrition plays a vital role in the recovery process. We can help clients develop nutritional meal plans, even if they require special dietary restrictions. Our caretakers are knowledgeable of dietary restrictions for clients with diabetes, congestive heart failure, and other conditions. They also fully understand the importance of following post-discharge instructions and can ensure your loved one is getting the nutrition they need. Not only can our caretakers develop a meal plan, they can help shop for and prepare meals as well.
