What is Post-Hospital/Rehab Discharge Care?

After a hospital discharge, you’ll need to carefully follow all of the instructions from your healthcare provider.

  • If you have a question about your follow-up care, call to ask.
  • If you’re concerned about problems, make sure to call with questions. This can help prevent problems from getting worse.
  • Make sure to keep all of your follow-up appointments.
    When you go to an appointment, be ready to tell your healthcare provider how you have been feeling.
  • Bring copies of any test results.
  • Ask questions about any part of your recovery or care.
  • You may have been given important instructions to follow, such as weighing yourself daily or doing certain exercises to speed your recovery.
 

Let family members or friends be a part of your recovery after discharge.

  • They may be able to pick up medications or take you to appointments.
  • They may remember things that you forget about symptoms, problems, or questions you want to ask.
  • This can help you ensure a smoother recovery after discharge.

After Hospital Home Care Services

To help the patient have the easiest possible recovery, a caregiver will be assigned to the patient. Only the physician can help you decide whether or not extended care is needed around the clock.

One of the benefits of having a home caregiver is ensuring that the patient is comfortable, safe, and as pain-free as possible while in our care.

Having post discharge support is key to reducing recovery time and helping the patient return to normal life quickly. Post hospital or rehab support is the best way to ensure that your recovery time is quick and the healthiest option available.

Top things to consider when choosing an in-home care provider:

Being Dependable and On-Time: Hiring an experienced in-home care agency is important. An experienced provider will be reliable but will also have a back-up plan when a caregiver is sick.

Read reviews of the home care agency to see if past clients have been happy. Ask the agency if they have a plan in place for when a caregiver isn’t able to make it to the scheduled visit.

Available Services: Be sure that you understand the home care services that will be provided.

Ask questions. Be your own (or your senior’s) advocate. Follow up after visits if you have questions. Find out what the agency recommends if they are unable to provide certain services.

What to Expect from Post-Rehab Home Care

When you come home from the hospital, you might experience some fatigue and general tiredness. You may also notice that you might be feeling pain. This is very common and should not alarm you. It is simply your body’s way of kicking into its healing mode, which helps you to rest.

All your energy can then be saved for healing and recovery. It is very important that when you come home from the hospital, you and your family are aware of the extra help you might need.

If you come from a big family, you already know that well-meaning relatives want to help, but busy schedules often make that difficult.

Most loved ones would rather spend their time hanging out with you, rather than overseeing your medical needs. This is the perfect time to bring in a qualified caregiver who can free families up to just be a support system.

Read the kind words from previous clients. Our testimonials and reviews help families discover how dedicated we are to customer satisfaction.
