Companion Care on the Journey to Recovery
A personal care assistant can provide companion care to ease the transition home
The time immediately after a hospital stay can be critical to the health and recovery of a loved one. Studies show that the lack of proper support and care following surgery or a serious hospitalization can lead to slower recovery or even readmission to the hospital.
Family members often take on the task of caring for a loved one after a hospital stay but can find they are untrained or ill-prepared to meet the physical and emotional challenges of such care. That is why Comfort Keepers® Rapid City, SD offers companion care services to ease the transition home. Our personal care assistant services work with your loved one's doctors and care physicians to ensure that they follow the care plan that they need to have a healthy recovery.
What is Transitioning Care?
The specialized companion care a personal care assistant can provide helps ease your loved one’s transition from a hospital stay to the home. Some of the services a personal care assistant can provide include the following:
- support of the care plan to aid the recovery process
- assistance with household activities and responsibilities, including meal preparation, housekeeping, and running errands
- incidental transportation for follow-up visits
- peace of mind for family and friends
- communication with the medical team as needed
How a Personal Care Assistant Can Help
In addition to the customary homemaker and companion care services each personal care assistant provides, we are able to adapt services to accommodate clients with specific medical needs such as:
- congestive heart failure
- myocardial infarction (heart attack)
Let Comfort Keepers help guide you safely through the transition process. It offers clients peace of mind and can help with recovery once your loved one returns home. We are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to provide companion care and help your family member recover.
