Transitional Care for Surgery Recovery in the Bay Area and Central Valley

People who have been discharged from the hospital after recovering from surgery often need some form of help and support at home as they complete their recovery. This is because many everyday household tasks may be difficult or impossible to complete depending on the procedure or how well they’ve recovered. It’s also important to have someone to make sure discharge instructions and recommendations for recovery from healthcare providers are being follow in order to reduce the likelihood of readmission.

That’s why J&M Homecare Services has been providing reliable transitional care for families in San Ramon, Stockton, San Rafael, and surrounding communities in the Bay Area and Central Valley regions in California since 2001. By providing personalized, one-on-one home care after recovering from surgery, we can help clients remain independent and remain at home while they focus on healing.

How Transitional Care Benefits Adults in the Bay Area and Central Valley

People who have undergone surgery can end up getting readmitted to the hospital due to a number of factors. These include not following post-operative instructions, not taking medications as prescribed, or the inability to perform daily activities after their surgery. Readmission to the hospital after surgery can be risky, particularly for those who are elderly or have chronic health conditions.

Some of the risks associated with readmission include:

  • Worsening of existing medical conditions
  • Infections due to prolonged hospital stays
  • A greater risk of complications from surgery
  • Additional financial costs due to doctor visits and hospital stays

Therefore, it is important to take steps to reduce the risk of readmission by following post-operative instructions closely and having help at home during recovery. However, not everyone who undergoes surgery has someone they can rely on to help them during the recovery process. If your family lives outside the Bay Area or have too much on their plate, you may benefit from professional transitional care.

In-home care can help people who have had surgery in a number of ways. Firstly, it can provide a helping hand around the house with tasks such as meal preparation and transportation to follow-up appointments. Additionally, in-home care provides someone to ensure that all post-operative instructions are being followed correctly, which can ultimately reduce the likelihood of readmission due to complications from not following healthcare provider orders. Finally, in-home transitional care can provide support from a dedicated caregiver who is available 24/7 for any emergencies that might arise during recovery.
