Resources for Recovery Assistance

Whether due to an illness, injury or surgery, a hospital stay can take a serious toll on older adults' health. Following a hospital discharge, seniors are especially prone to falls and relapses. It's easy for them to reinjure themselves by lifting or making a sudden movement. Often feeling too weak to fix their own meals, they may not eat well enough for a full recovery.

Here are some helpful resources to ensure your loved one's full recovery at home:

  • Nutrition Resources: Special dietary needs for conditions like diabetes, hypertension or heart disease can be managed through strict shopping guidelines and proper food preparation.  Proper nutrition will help in the recovery process. Your caregiver will prepare food to your exact needs to help fuel your recovery.
  • Logistical Resources:  Recovery often requires follow up visits to doctors and specialists. CTC HOME CARE LTD can help schedule, coordinate and provide transportation to follow up medical and therapy appointments. Your caregiver can, with your permission, attend doctor visits and take notes so that instructions make it home and get followed.

Medication Resources: Often recovery from an illness or surgery requires medication. CTC HOME CARE LTD can help with medication reminders so medicine is taken on time as directed.
