What Your Senior Parent Needs To Recover At Home

24-hour home care provides seniors recovering from falls, surgery, or illness the support they need to safely heal at home, reducing risks and offering peace of mind for families.

If your senior parent has been in the hospital due to a fall, surgery, or a long illness, they may be able to recover at home instead of going to a rehab facility. Seniors almost always prefer to recover in their comfortable homes if it’s possible.

If you can’t move in with your senior mom or dad to help them around the clock during their recovery, 24-hour home care is available for seniors. 24-hour home care helps seniors recover by making sure that they have support at all hours of the day.

With attentive and compassionate 24-hour home care, your senior parent has a lower risk of falling, getting an infection, or needing to be readmitted to the hospital because of complications from their illness. And you will have the peace of mind of knowing that your mom or dad isn’t alone at any time of the day or night.

In addition to 24-hour home care, some things that can help your senior mom or dad recover at home are:


Medical Equipment and Supplies

While your senior parent recovers, they are probably going to need a medical bed at home on the first floor. They may also need medical equipment like oxygen tanks, a portable commode that can go next to the bed or within easy distance, and other equipment to make their recovery easier.

Talk to their doctor about what equipment they need, and then talk to a local medical supply company. Often, you can rent whatever your senior mom or dad needs for as long as they need it.


Personal Care At Home

Family members often find it more difficult than they thought to help a senior parent with hygiene tasks like showering, getting to the bathroom, brushing their teeth, and getting dressed. Personal care at home is specialty care provided by caregivers who have training in safe methods of helping seniors with all kinds of hygiene tasks. It is strongly recommended for seniors who are recovering at home.


Meal Preparation

Your senior parent needs healthy meals to help their recovery, but they won’t be able to cook. A 24-hour home care provider can cook meals, prepare snacks in advance, and ensure that your mom or dad is eating. They can also mix up protein shakes, smoothies, and other drinks to ensure that your mom or dad is staying hydrated.


Shopping And Errands

Another way that home care can help your senior parent recover at home is by taking over the shopping and errands until your senior parent is better. If you work or take care of your kids and don’t have time to do the grocery shopping and errands for your mom or dad, a 24-hour home care provider can go grocery shopping, stop at the pharmacy, go to the post office, or bank, and do all the things necessary to keep the household running while your mom or dad recovers.
