Post Rehab In-Home Care Services
After a lengthy stay at a Senior Rehabilitation Center (better known as a Nursing Home) the thought of returning home can sometimes be overwhelming. The helpful staff at a Rehabilitation Center have been tending to your every need since you arrived. What will it be like when you get home? Will you be able to safely get around your home? Will you have the support needed to remain independent and avoid being readmitted?
Sadly, many elderly individuals are discharged too early from their Rehabilitation Center and feel they're not 100% ready to return home. Many individuals even report they feel weaker after leaving the Nursing Home than before they arrived. That's why it's important to have the right care in place before returning home.
In most cases the Social Worker at the Senior Rehabilitation Center will order Home Health Care Services for you. Although it's important to have Home Health Care to focus on regaining your strength, many individuals will need more help at home than what Home Health Care can deliver. Home Health Care's scope is very limited and only addresses the medical issue that brought you to the Nursing Home in the first place. Examples of the services they provide are; recording vitals, wound care, catheter care, medication reviews, Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, and/or Speech Therapy. The one thing they don't provide is personal care which covers all of the Types Of Services we offer.
