or your loved one has left hospital.
Receiving care in hospital can be a stressful and complex experience, for both the person requiring care and for loved ones. Returning home and transitioning to life after an injury, illness, or procedure can also feel overwhelming.
Discharge from the hospital to be at home is a critical time in a patient’s full recovery. When a patient is discharged from hospital, it’s important to have a well-coordinated plan in place to ensure ongoing care. This involves ensuring that the patient’s medical needs are met, including managing any medications, wound care, and physical therapy. Additionally, emotional and psychological support should also be provided to help the patient adjust.
A successful transition from hospital to care in the home requires a team effort, with healthcare providers, hospital staff, care home staff, family members, and caregivers working together to ensure the patient receives the best possible care and support.
Upon discharge, care to some extent is often still required. At myCare, our goal is to provide assistance at home so that you can recover and adapt in a supported manner.
Why Is Home Care Important
After A Hospital Visit?
There are many reasons why you or a loved one may require hospital admission. Though you may reach a state in which you are able to return home, you may still have needs that must be met by someone experienced and relevantly qualified.
In addition, you may be unable to immediately return to the level of functioning you had prior to your hospitalisation. This can make it difficult to maintain self-care and your daily routine. A personalised home care plan can enable you to regain your independence while remaining safe and productive.
