After a hospital stay, the transition back to life at home can be taxing, especially for seniors. Returning home is ideal, but your loved one may now be dealing with recovery, new medications, or even limited mobility. Hiring an in home aide in Bensalem, PA can make the transition easier and more comfortable for your loved one.

How an In Home Aide Can Help

The transitional period is key for your loved one's recovery. Some seniors end up back in the hospital due to the stress of the transition or lack of proper care. Bringing an in home aide into the mix can help bridge the gap between the constant care of a hospital stay and your loved one's ability to live independently.

At Interim HealthCare of Trevose, we have a dedicated staff of aides who are happy to step in and help your loved one. Our aides can help by assisting with:

  • Medications. Whether your loved one requires special medications or simple reminders to take their medicines, our aides can ensure they are taking the necessary treatments for their recovery.
  • Follow-up physician visits. Our caregivers can help your loved one keep track of their subsequent doctor visits. In some cases, we can assist with transportation to and from these appointments.
  • Education. Learning about their new condition or recovery plan is essential for your loved one's journey to independence. Our aides can educate them on warning signs, symptoms, and special recovery instructions from their physician.
  • Daily tasks. If your loved one needs help with everyday tasks, like housekeeping, mobility, and meal preparation, we have compassionate caregivers who can help.

An in home aide can help coordinate and manage your loved one's recovery, improving the success rate of recovery and helping your loved one regain their independence.
