Advantages of Caregivers for Post Hospitalization Recovery

For most adults transitioning out of the hospital setting, home care is the solution that offers the greatest security and happiness for the client and the most peace of mind to his or her family.

  • Working with a personal caregiver provides the individual customized attention, ranging from a few hours a day to around-the-clock care 24 hours a day.
  • Visiting therapists can cater to the specific recovery needs of a client at home. For example, to practice walking stairs, a therapist can utilize the exact staircase the patient will eventually need to climb. This level of customization is not available in a rehab facility.
  • A patient benefits psychologically from the comfort of home and has a smoother transition back to a familiar routine and lifestyle.
  • Further, patients recovering at home can benefit from full-time, 24-hour services from a caregiver; the level of care is far more personalized than at a nursing facility and families enjoy peace of mind knowing a trained professional is always at home.

Relief and Support for Your Family

Home Care Assistance knows the effort the staff at care facilities puts into taking care of residents. We also realize there may be times, even very brief periods, when your loved one needs additional attention. To meet this need, Home Care Assistance created a new program wherein approved caregivers split their shifts across 2 or more seniors. Available for 1–8 hour blocks, our caregivers can address the short-hour needs of multiple residents within various care facilities and communities. Knowing a trustworthy caregiver is providing the best possible care will help give you peace of mind.

Home Care Assistance caregivers are trained in our exclusive Balanced Care MethodTM, an approach to care that emphasizes healthy aging and longevity.

The Method is based on extensive research on lifestyle factors linked to healthy longevity including healthy diet, physical activity, mental stimulation, socialization, calm, and maintaining a sense of purpose. By promoting a healthy mind, body and spirit, our caregivers support quality of life, enabling older adults to live longer, happier lives. With comprehensive, ongoing training through Home Care Assistance University, a proprietary online training platform, our caregivers are educated on best practices and the latest developments in aging, wellness, Alzheimer’s and dementia care and more.

Approved Caregiving Today — More Than Just Health and Safety

Today, more than seven million Americans require some type of home care assistance ranging from around-the-clock, in-home medical care to once- or twice- weekly, touch-base visits. For most families, caregiving can become stressful as demands from their professional and personal world collide with the desire to find sufficient time to devote to the caregiving tasks that also are a family priority. Even after a caregiving plan of action is identified, it is often complicated and multi-layered. Read more
