We are a Nationally Certified Transitions of Care provider – but what does that mean?
Transitions Of Care
Can be any transfer your loved one makes between a facility such as a hospital, a skilled nursing facility, an assisted living community, or their home. When you are released from the hospital, you don’t stop needing care. For older adults, continuing to monitor care is key to ensuring full recovery and ComForCare can provide the support you may need.
Hospitals sometimes discharge patients with very little notice, leaving families to scramble to solve immediate needs like transportation home and transitioning into a new routine. If you live out of town or responsibilities don’t allow you to transport your family member home, ComForCare Myrtle Beach can help.
We can provide one-time care services or continued care plans. Care plans include a nurse’s evaluation of needs, a personalized schedule and routine based on the evaluation, and fall prevention and home safety checks.
Our Transition of Care service can help loved ones and their families by providing:
- An experienced, reliable caregiver who meets your loved one in the hospital room or discharge area
- Transportation home with stops for picking up prescriptions or groceries
- Meal preparation Light housekeeping and laundry
- A debriefing phone call to the family
Continued Care Plans
Hospitalization of elderly individuals generally occurs due to a medical event, condition diagnosis, or injury. In many cases, the reason for the hospitalization is something that affects the individual’s ability to perform regular daily activities of living for at least a short period of time through recovery.
In some cases, the condition or injury affects physical or cognitive ability in a progressive or permanent way. When these situations occur, ComForCare can craft continued care plans to help meet your loved one’s needs on a continual basis in the Pawleys Island, Conway, Little River, and Myrtle Beach areas.
Round the Clock Care
If seniors require supervision and assistance 24 hours a day following hospital discharge, we are happy to help. This is often the case when injuries or illnesses affect mobility or when strong medication impairs cognitive functions.
This may also be beneficial on a long-term basis for seniors with advanced dementia or debilitating conditions that affect physical abilities, allowing your loved one to stay in the comfort of their home while receiving the care they need. Our team will work with you to determine whether continual 24-hour care would benefit your loved one.
