Melbourne Post-Hospital Care – Promoting a Faster Recovery
When an elderly patient is hospitalised for a medical procedure or illness, their recovery can be lengthy and painful. If your elderly parent or loved one has recently received hospital treatment, Home Care Assistance offers Melbourne Post-Hospital Care that promotes a faster recovery for seniors in the comfort of their home.
Avoid Hospital Readmission with Post Hospital Care
After being discharged from the hospital, 35% of seniors are readmitted after only 90 days. For seniors, hospital readmission is usually a result of not following doctor’s recommendations or medication instructions or a poor recovery environment. Home Care Assistance in Melbourne provides home care tailored to meet the needs of individual patients in post hospital recovery.
Our Melbourne Post-Hospital Care can be implemented before our clients are discharged from the hospital to help ensure a smooth transition. If your loved one is staying in an assisted living facility or a nursing home, our caregivers can provide 24 hours assistance with personal care.
Our Melbourne Post-Hospital caregivers are professionally trained and experienced in providing post hospital care for seniors. We offer hourly care and live-in home care to accommodate whatever level of care is required. We help our clients avoid readmission and have a faster recovery period by ensuring our clients:
- Follow their medication administration schedule prescribed by their doctor
- Attend all follow up appointments
- Eat an appropriate diet and participate in therapy exercises
- Receive encouragement, support and companionship throughout the recovery process
