Elderly Rehabilitation Care

elderly-rehabilitation

At WellSprings Home Care, we offer many different options when it comes to home care for your aging loved one in the Delaware County, Montgomery County, and Chester County areas.

One of these services includes rehabilitation care, which can be extremely helpful if your parent or relative in need has recently had surgery or suffered from an injury. While many families are unaware of this option, you certainly have a choice as to where your loved one receives rehabilitation care.

In-Home Rehabilitation Services for Seniors

Going through any sort of rehabilitation can be a difficult process, and doing so outside of the home can be stress inducing for many seniors. That’s why in-home rehabilitation is a great option, so that your loved one can be comfortable while receiving the care he or she needs.

Home care agencies, such as WellSprings, provide caregivers who can regulate your loved one’s progress after a hospital visit or surgery. This may even include going for walks if physical therapy is required, or monitoring meals and medication times.

Working with Your Loved One’s Needs

Before your loved one leaves the hospital, you’ll want to be sure to ask the doctors what type of therapies he or she will need in order to heal properly. Many times, a recovering senior will need help with bathing, dressing, housework, or 24/7 monitoring.

Our caregivers can provide services such as these, so that you can rest assured your loved one is receiving the proper care and has the opportunity for a speedy recovery. We also know that your loved one will need some time to adjust to potential limited mobility and may be uncomfortable with needing extra help at first.

That’s where we’ll make sure to not only provide you with a caregiver who is a good fit, but will help you to make your loved one’s home a safe place that prevents falls and more serious injuries. We’ll help to install grab bars in high risk areas, reduce tripping hazards in entryways, and much more.

Getting Started with Rehabilitation Care

Of course, you’ll first want to check with your loved one’s doctor to see if in-home rehabilitation care is an option. They can then assess what types of services your loved one will need, and you can then choose the agency that will provide the right care.

You can always contact us at WellSprings Home Care Services for more information on this topic, such as which questions to ask your loved one’s doctor, which services we provide, etc.

If you choose to work with our agency, we’ll find the caregiver who will be a good fit for your loved one’s situation. You and your family can interview this caregiver, and if you decide he or she is a good match, you can then decide together which services your loved one will need.

Hospital Recovery Care for Seniors

Hospital Recovery Care

If your loved one has had a recent hospital stay, our caregivers at WellSprings Home Care can help! From live-in assistance, to respite care from time to time, we provide plenty of services to seniors in the Delaware County, Chester County, and Montgomery County areas.

After your loved one has spent time in the hospital, perhaps for an injury or surgery, he or she will more than likely want to recover in their comfort of his or her own home, which is where we can step in. Read on to find out more!

Home Care Services

Hospital recovery can require extra care and attention, and having an in-home caregiver may be just the right solution. Our caregivers provide services such as:

• Live-in care, for those who need around-the-clock assistance
• Personal care, such as bathing and dressing, along with dental care
• Respite care, for those times when you might need a break for a few days
• Mobility assistance, especially if your loved one is recovering from a recent fall, or is required to walk around as part of rehabilitation
• Medication reminders and light housework, such as laundry, meal preparation, or some errands

Services like these can allow you to rest assured that your loved one is receiving the right care he or she needs after time spent in the hospital. Our team at WellSprings Home Care provides extensive training for our caregivers in all of these areas, so that your loved one is receiving only the highest quality of care.

Finding the Right Caregiver

Finding the right caregiver starts even before your loved one is discharged. You’ll want to check with his or her doctor to first see if home care is the right option. If so, you’ll then need to discuss which services your loved one will need from a caregiver – most importantly, if he or she will need medical or non-medical services.

Then, you’ll want to find an agency that provides such services. Be sure to ask the agencies a number of questions, such as:

• If they’re licensed by the state
• If they’re certified by Medicare or Medicaid
• What type of training their caregivers undergo
• How they conduct their hiring process
• If they keep up with employee screenings
• If they can provide references upon request

Asking these questions ahead of time can eliminate problems in the future, and you can have peace of mind that your loved one is receiving compassionate, proper care.

How to Get Started with Senior Hospital Recovery Care

If you think that in-home care may be the right solution for your loved one’s recovery from a hospital stay, our team at WellSprings Home Care Services can help. When you contact us, we’ll assess your loved one’s needs, and match him or her with the right caregiver.

You’ll then have the opportunity to interview this caregiver in person, and see for yourself if you think he or she is a good fit. Then, you can decide on which services you think your loved one will benefit from together.
