The Journey to Recovery Through Our Elderly In Home Care Assistance
Our elderly in home care assistance can ease your loved one’s transition from the hospital or rehabilitation facility back home
The period immediately following a hospital stay can be confusing for anyone. You have just been through a stressful ordeal, you have been given many directions and follow up dates, you may still be under the effects of anesthesia, and you may still be recovering. Now imagine a senior who may or may not be returning to living on their own facing these difficulties while also dealing with the normal dilemmas of senior living. Is it any wonder then that many seniors end up as repeat visitors to a hospital because of over exertion, misunderstood directions, and forgotten appointments?
A family caregiver may try to help a recovering senior, but often these well-meaning family members find they are lacking the time or the training to provide sufficient care. This is when Comfort Keepers should be contacted to either support or fully provide elderly in home care assistance through Transitional Care for your recovering loved one.
What is Transitional Care?
Transitional Care provides a safe way for seniors to bridge the gap between a hospital stay and a full return to their normal routine. The elderly in home care assistance that Transitional Care provides focuses on removing the burdens of daily tasks, such as cleaning, from the senior so that they can rest and recover. Typical services provided through Transitional Care include:
- Creating and supporting a care plan to aid recovery.
- Assisting with housekeeping, meal preparation, and errands
- Transportation to and from follow up appointments
- Providing peace of mind to family and friends
- Communication with medical staff involved in the recovery process
- Ensuring medications are taken on time and in the proper quantity
The Comfort Keepers Difference

- Congestive Heart Failure
- Heart Attacks
Comfort Keepers can help to safely guide seniors through the difficult transitional period in Owensboro, KY. We encourage you to contact your local office immediately if you or a loved one will be needing elderly in home care assistance while transitioning home.
