A Quicker Recovery with Short Term Care
We all know the great feeling of returning home after time away: the welcoming comfort of sleeping in your own bed, enjoying a favorite meal, or sitting by a window in a comfortable chair. Right at Home's short-term recovery services can help you or a loved one recover and mend at home during or after an illness, or while recuperating from an accident or surgery. The familiar setting, close to family and friends, and the routine and comfort of your own home are some of the best medicines possible for a speedy and successful recovery.
A Broad Array of Restorative Care and Support Services
Our care team is able to provide a variety of post-acute non-medical services to help relieve you of some of the usual tasks you are either unable to do, or would prefer to have others do, while you rest and focus on getting back your strength and energy. Our services begin at the time of discharge from a hospital, rehab center or skilled nursing facility and are designed to complement those provided by your medical team. For example, you may be entitled to medicare-reimbursed post-discharge in-home visits from a registered nurse, physical therapist, or occupational therapist. These visits are generally brief and specifically oriented toward meeting your medical needs: administering medication, conducting therapeutic exercises, etc. For those needs that fall outside these limited categories, Right at Home is able to step in and assist.
The following is a sample of the services we can provide for you on your road to recovery:
- Bathing, including bed baths
- Dressing and grooming
- Assistance with transfering from bed to chair
- Assistance with toileting
- Transportation to doctor or physical therapy appointments
- Medication reminders
- Running errands
- Grocery shopping and meal preparation
- Dusting and basic housekeeping
- Pet care
- Watering plants and light gardening
- Socialization and bringing optimism to the situation
Right at Home will be there for you to provide support as you work toward a successful recovery. We would be pleased to assist you in reaching your goal of getting back on your feet as quickly as possible, so you can resume your busy life and enjoy each day to its fullest.
