Did you know that 20% of seniors are readmitted to the hospital within three weeks of discharge? And here's the kicker—75% could have been avoided, had they had proper care when they were recovering at home for the first few weeks.
Whether planned or unexpected, a surgery or hospitalization means that your body has gone through an experience that requires time to heal. We at SYNERGY HomeCare can be part of your recovery team. We can smooth the transition from operating room to home or from rehab to home to ensure your recovery time is optimal.
Recovering from an illness can be a full-time job. Especially when your doctor tells you to get plenty of rest, but there are simply some things you can’t ignore. Life doesn’t always wait for you to fully recover and if you happen “over do it,” your recovery may take longer than expected.
Home care is a great prescription when recovering from an illness or a surgery. Having a caregiver allows you to concentrate on regaining your health while your caregiver helps around the house, keeping the household running efficiently. A caregiver can also help in the recovery process by creating healthy meals, timely medication reminders and setting up follow up health appointments. If you or a loved one are recovering from an illness, you will recover faster when you follow your doctor’s recovery plan.
