Hospitalization is very stressful for everyone involved. Post hospitalization can be equally stressful if specific care is needed as part of the recovery. The support you receive after discharge is key to long-term recovery.
Post-hospital home care services include:
Development of a care plan with the hospital discharge planner
Help to prepare home for post hospital recovery
Administration of medication
Attendance of follow-up medical appointments
Provide dietary and exercise needs
Provide companionship, care, and reassurance
Avoiding Readmission with Post-Hospital Care
Around 35% of elderly patients are readmitted to the hospital within 90 days of discharge. This is generally due to either an improper recovery environment, or insufficient care oversight leading to patients not sticking to instructions from the doctor.
Global Health’s help can start right in the hospital. Being there before your loved one is discharged our nurse care manager can ensure that a discharge care plan is in place and care resources are available informed. With Global Health Care Services, you can rest assured that your loved one is receiving the best care to help them heal and that the care is based on their needs and the care plan.

Our caregivers are experienced and expertly taught to take care of patients after they have been in a hospital.
