When finally being released from a hospital, rehabilitation facility or nursing home, most people think the toughest part of recovering is behind them. They may not realize this transition is a very crucial time, one where it is easy to lose the progress that was so painstakingly gained. How prepared a person is for their return home can make the difference in risking a relapse.
Approximately half the seniors released from Lakeland Regional Medical Center are readmitted within 30 days, and that is not unusual. NOW is the time to start your homecare! The key to staying OUT of the hospital is organization, preparation, and follow through once you get home. Flamingo Homecare can help with the goal of moving you back toward the independence you had before the facility stay. Here is how we can help:
- Preparation. Know what to expect. Arrange details and assistance in advance so the transition is smooth
- Recognize signs and symptoms that indicate a condition is worsening
- Know who to call and when
- Understand and monitor medications, what they are, when to take them, how much to take, and when to get refills
- Follow through with follow up. Schedule and keep that appointment with your private physician. And transportation is not an issue when you have homecare.
