Home Care Services Can Help Ease The Transition From The Hospital To Home
Learn more about how loving home care services from Comfort Keepers in Bridgewater, NJ can help
Upon being discharged from a medical center or other medical facilities like a rehabilitation center or nursing home, many people and their families think that the hardest part of their recovery is behind them. The truth is, it usually means the start of a completely new routine at home – one which entails more awareness, organization and effort. How ready an individual is for going back home could make the difference in being susceptible to hospital readmission.
Loved ones usually undertake the work of looking after a family member after a hospital stay but can find they’re ill-prepared or untrained to meet the emotional and physical difficulties of such care. For this reason, our home care services ease the change from the hospital or rehabilitation facility to home.
What is Transitioning Care?
The phrase “care transitions” describes the movement individuals make between healthcare practitioners and other surroundings as their care requires change.

- Support of care plans to assist the recovery process
- Assistance with household responsibilities and activities, which include running errands, meal preparation and housekeeping
- Incidental transportation for follow-up visits
- Peace of mind for friends and family
