Benefits of Post Hospital Live-in Care

There are many benefits of using post-hospitalisation live in care services.

Reduce risk of readmission
One of the biggest benefits of using a live-in care service is that the risk of readmission is greatly reduced, especially for those who are elderly or have dementia. This is because they will be well supported at home.

Peace of mind
You will have peace of mind, especially if you live alone. You will have another person in the house who you can call on if you need any help with any aspect of your care and recovery.

Personalised service
The live in care service can be highly personalised to suit you, your recovery plan and the environment in which you live. You will be fully assessed to see what type of live in care package is needed.

Helps the extended family
It is also important to consider the needs of the extended family. The live-in carer can take over those duties that are usually carried out by members of the family, enabling them to take a break.

Quicker recovery
When you have care at home then you will make a quicker recovery. This is because your stress levels will be greatly reduced and you will have help in getting around your home, reducing the risk of falls and injury which could hinder the recovery process.

Good for your mental health
The live in carer will provide you with a great amount of psychological support. You will be able to share any worries or concerns you may have with them, and this is essential for good mental health.

Services we can arrange for you

Live in care following hospitalisation is incredibly varied and should be highly personalised to suit your needs. We can help you find the right service to meet your needs. Below we share some of the services we can offer you. You may need one or several services and we can discuss this with you.

Escort you home
A live in carer can be with you from the very moment you are discharged from hospital. They can help you with your belongings, transport you safely home and then once home they can help to settle you in.

Help with discharge instructions
Every patient is given discharge instructions and information when leaving hospital. This can be a lot of information to follow and remember. Your dedicated live in carer can help to remind you about your post hospital care.

Follow up appointments
In many cases you will need some form of follow up care at the hospital. This may be for a routine x-ray or to see your specialist. Your live-in carer can go with you to this appointment and offer much needed moral support.

Prescription and medication
A live in carer can help to remind you when you need to take your medication. They can also collect any medication that you may need from the pharmacy and help you with repeat prescriptions.

Personal care
You may need a little extra help with personal care needs once you return from hospital. This is especially true if you have had surgery or if you need an extended period of rehabilitation. Live in carers can assist you with all personal care requirements.

Shopping
You may still feel a little weak or have reduced mobility following your hospital stay. A live-in carer can do your shopping and unpack it all for you as well. If preferred they can help you to organise an online delivery.

Preparing meals
It is important that you eat regular healthy meals to aid your recovery. A live in carer can help you to prepare meals and ensure that you are eating a well-balanced diet.

Housekeeping
If you are worried about doing the household chores once you return home from hospital and feel that you would benefit from a little help, then a live in carer can assist you with cleaning and laundry.

Post-operative exercises
You may be given post op exercises to do at home to aid your recovery. A live in carer can assist you with these exercises to help you build up your mobility and stamina.
