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

After being released from the hospital, patients often need assistance and care at home to ensure a smooth recovery process. This is due to the fact that, depending on the surgery and their level of recovery, many common domestic duties may be difficult or impossible to accomplish. In order to lower the chance of readmission, it’s also critical to have someone to ensure that discharge instructions and recovery-oriented healthcare professional suggestions are followed.

Since 2001, families in the Bay Area and Central Valley areas of California have relied on J&M Homecare Services for dependable transitional care in San Ramon, Stockton, San Rafael, and neighboring cities. After surgery, our clients may stay at home and concentrate on recovery with the aid of our individualized, one-on-one home care services.

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

Repeat hospitalizations after surgery may happen for several reasons. The inability to carry out routine tasks after surgery, failure to adhere to post-operative instructions, and improper medication use are all examples of such complications. It is especially dangerous for the elderly and those with chronic illnesses to have to return to the hospital following surgery.

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

Following post-operative instructions to the letter and having support at home during recovery are two critical measures to take to decrease the chance of readmission. On the other hand, not everyone has a support system in place to assist them as they recuperate after surgery. Therefore, it may be helpful to have professional transitional care if your family is too busy or doesn’t reside in the Bay Area.

People in the Bay Area who have had surgery can benefit in many ways from having professional transitional care at home. For starters, it may provide a hand around the home with things like making meals and getting to and from appointments. In addition, having someone check in with patients at home after surgery helps alleviate concerns about not following post-operative instructions, which can lead to fewer readmissions. Lastly, a committed caregiver is on call around the clock to assist with any unexpected needs that may develop throughout the healing process with in-home transitional care.
