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.
