After a hospital stay or illness, transitional home care ensures that your loved one receives the daily care they need in order to recover their health. Seniors who live at home or alone may have a harder time getting the help they need during a transitional period. Alliance home services include transitional care, meaning we can help your loved one stay in their home as they recover, while also ensuring that they have the best possible quality of life during that period.
Transitional care is designed to facilitate the recovery of someone who is healing from a significant illness, surgery, or other health event. Transitional care takes into account nutrition, daily activity, lifestyle, cleanliness, medication regimens, and other factors in order to encourage a speedy recovery.
Alliance home services provide transitional care including picking up groceries, planning and preparing healthy meals, and assisting with feeding when necessary. Caregivers can also track medication, keep the medication schedule, and monitor any food interactions that may occur with medication.
We all know that during a long illness or recovery, it’s very hard to keep up with housework, errands, the dishes, and other housekeeping needs. Even getting the mail can feel impossible! As your loved one gets back onto his or her feet, a transitional caregiver can help with light housekeeping and errands that keep the household running smoothly and safely. Keeping a clean environment for your loved one makes it easier for them to recover their health.
During recovery, it is particularly important for your loved one to have continued access to their physician, surgeon, physical therapist, and any other health resource they need. Without continued medical care, the healing process may slow, or additional injury could be caused. For those living alone, scheduling appointments, corresponding with doctors’ offices, and reliable transportation can all be barriers to receiving this needed care. Alliance home services caregivers can provide transportation to and from appointments, and ensure the safety of your loved one by accompanying them in and out of the office.
