If you’ve been hospitalized for a long period of time, due to illness, accident recovery, or surgery, transitioning back home and back into your normal routines can be difficult. Without a support system in place at home, rehospitalization is far more likely to occur.
Hospital discharge and recovery can feel daunting, especially when you have no relatives in the area to assist you. Even if family is close by, many people have reservations about asking for assistance, not wanting to be a burden on their loved ones. Whether you are alone or have a family support system in need of assistance, a qualified caregiver will look out for your best interests and help you achieve your health goals at home.
Independent Life Home Care is here to support you when returning home after a hospital stay, to facilitate your recovery in the comfort of your home. Through consulting with you and your medical care team, we will customize a plan that addresses your specific areas of concern. Our staff will coordinate with your therapists and other specialists to ensure your needs are met.
Caregivers are available on a part-time basis or can provide 24-hour care, depending on your needs. As your recovery progresses, in-home care can be dialed back if necessary.
