Post-Hospital Recovery Risks And In Home Care

Jun 16, 2017 by Tony B.

We have all heard in some form or another that a senior will often head downhill once they have fallen or been in some type of accident that affects their mobility. It does not have to be this way and in home care can help make that difference. When your loved one is set to be sent home after they have spent some time in the hospital, you may be worried and scared. This is often because you do not know what to expect and you do not have the time to dedicate to your loved one. There are some issues that need to be closely monitored after a post-hospital stay, which include safety, fall prevention, hydration and nutrition issues, bathing, and more. All of this will fall onto your shoulders, but it does not have to.
