Preparing your Loved One to Return Home & Stay There
Many seniors are readmitted to the hospital or care center they came from within 30 days of returning home. This is often emotionally devastating and can lead to a roller coaster of ups and downs throughout their recovery process.
No matter how eager your loved one is to return home, without a good understanding of the risks, a well-established plan of care and effective caregiving, they are likely to experience difficulties adjusting to their home environment safely. But this can be prevented with the expert guidance of our trained and experienced CNAs, right there to attend to your loved one's needs for the first 72 hours.
