Best post-hospital strategy for recovery

Try one-on-one care in your own home

Faster recovery—great for new moms, too
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.

Did you know?

Having in-home care greatly reduces your chances of re-hospitalization.
The top three reasons seniors are readmitted before 30 days are:
1. A fall
2. Mix-up with medicine
3. Dehydration

Hospitals hope you'll use non-medical home care upon release. Why? Studies indicate that seniors who use in-home care after surgery are 25% less likely to be readmitted to the hospital. Hospitals particularly love that because they are penalized financially for re-admissions. That said, you can be pretty darn certain that doctors will not release you until they're sure you can recover at home, or a long term care facility, a rehab or a hotel (barring any unforeseen criteria).


What’s the best way to recover at home?

Home care is a great prescription when recovering from an illness or 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.

Home care provides one-on-one care, unlike sharing a caregiver with a half dozen other recuperating patients. And at home, you don’t have to share a bathroom or listen to someone else snore throughout the night.

Our care team members can assist with:

  • Adapting the home environment for safety and independence

  • Collaboration with speech, occupational and physical therapists

  • Providing transportation for follow up medical appointments

  • Personal care: grooming, personal hygiene, dressing

  • Transfers, mobility and fall reduction

  • Meal planning and preparation

  • Reminders for medication regime

  • Enhanced social activity and companionship

  • Light household tasks


We’ve got it covered for you

As professional and compassionate caregivers, you can trust your choice of SYNERGY HomeCare to have all the bases covered, especially these, which are the answers to new clients’ most frequently asked questions:

  • Background checks. Caregivers have undergone and passed a national background check.

  • Relevant experience. SYNERGY HomeCare has some caregivers with experience in caring for people struggling with the same illness or condition affecting your loved one.

  • Backup care. If the caregiver is sick or doesn’t work out, we can find a replacement quickly.

  • Communication. We have open communication, provide status reports and are available 24/7 if you have questions or concerns.

  • Fast upgrades. If care level or diagnosis changes, we can quickly provide a caregiver with more training.

  • Liability protection. If a caregiver is injured on the job, our insurance covers the cost.


Recovery from surgery

As they recuperate following surgery, older adults may be uncomfortable and need lots of emotional support as well as help doing simple everyday tasks. We're here to help, with tailored care plans that allow your parent to receive the attentive care they need at an affordable price.

  • Hourly assistance to around-the-clock care

  • Coordination and scheduling with therapists and specialists

  • Medication reminders for treatment and prevention

  • Fall and injury prevention

  • Change in condition alerts

  • Transportation and scheduling of doctors’ appointments

  • Housekeeping, meal preparation and nutrition

One of five seniors are readmitted to the hospital within 30 days of their discharge. With a caregiver, seniors recover faster at home and typically are not readmitted to the hospital.

In-home care is more economical than a hospital stay or a rehab facility, plus you get the added bonus of have undivided, one-on-one attention with your caregiver.


How we can help with ortho rehab

As your senior parent recovers from orthopedic surgery—whether hip implants or a different shoulder, hip or elbow procedure—it’s vitally important that they carefully follow their doctor’s directions for rehabilitation. The exercises for strength and range of motion must be performed on the prescribed schedule to avoid continued weakness or even loss of function.

While our caregivers don’t provide rehab services, we do assist with transportation and scheduling of rehabilitation appointments. Our caregivers also can take your loved one on regular walks if needed for their recovery or offer friendly reminders to do their home rehabilitation exercises.


After a stroke home care

Stroke is all-too-common in the elderly, and recovery is an ongoing process. Our stroke caregivers not only have experience and training in caring for stroke patients, but they are fully insured and bonded for your safety. In addition, we offer our clients peace of mind by requiring that caregivers pass national criminal background checks. Here’s a list of services our caregivers provide:

  • Hourly assistance to around-the-clock care

  • Companionship, calming anxiety, stress and depression common among stroke patients

  • Coordination and scheduling with therapists and specialists

  • Medication reminders for treatment and prevention

  • Fall and injury prevention

  • Change in condition alerts

  • Transportation and scheduling of doctors’ appointments

  • Assistance with bathing, dressing and personal care

  • Housekeeping, meal preparation and nutrition

  • Complimentary medical alarm for continuous monitoring
