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.
