We make sure we have all the information we need from healthcare professionals and hospital staff to customize our care plans. With help from our team, your loved one will feel safe and comfortable in their home after hospitalization.
Customized Care after Any Procedure
No matter why your loved one was hospitalized, our team is able to provide the necessary care when they come home. Our knowledgeable staff is trained to assist with any situation they may be facing.
For example, clients recovering from joint replacement surgery may experience difficulty performing daily household tasks or getting around. Our in-home caregivers can help them take medication, maintain physiotherapy routines, and eat healthily. Clients who have just undergone heart surgery will often need six to eight weeks of assistance with getting around the house and running errands.
All surgery patients, regardless of the procedure, are at a heightened risk of developing pneumonia. Having our experienced caregiving team on-hand, spending time with your loved one, may help in identifying changes in their health, and reporting these observations may prevent worsening of symptoms.
With over 30 years of experience, Homewatch CareGivers provides empowering, person-directed care for the whole person, not just their condition. We are ready to help you or your loved one recover at home after a hospital stay.
