Managing the Transition of Care from Hospital to Home
Leaving hospital can be a daunting step in the recovery process, whether the stay was planned or an emergency, so it is important to feel confident you have the necessary care provision in place to make the transition home a smooth one. For many – especially after a long stay in hospital – the chance to be back in the comfort of your own home is long awaited and welcomed.
Once discharged from hospital, it is likely that some form of outpatient care and help at home is required and depending on the health issue it may be difficult to move around and do things for yourself as easily as before, wounds may need regular attention and medication may need to be administered.
If someone lives alone, it may be a requirement to have hospital to home care carer in place to provide vital support as a prerequisite for discharge from hospital. Hiring a professional carer means you can feel confident that a loved one is getting the care they need around the clock if you can’t be there. It can be difficult to leave the care of a loved one in the hands of someone else, but our carers are experienced professionals who care deeply about providing the very best care.
