Avoid Hospital Readmission with Our Live In Home Care

After being discharged from the hospital, 35% of seniors are readmitted after only 90 days. For seniors, hospital readmission is usually a result of not following doctor recommendations, medication instructions or a poor recovery environment. Home Care Assistance of Greater Chicago provides elder home care tailored to meet the needs of individual patients in post-hospital recovery.

Our post-hospital home care can be present before our clients are discharged from the hospital to help ensure a smooth transition. If your loved one is staying in an assisted living community or a nursing home, our caregivers can provide 24-hour assistance with personal care.

Our caregivers are professionally trained and experienced in providing post-hospital care for seniors. We offer hourly care and live-in home care to accommodate whatever level of care is required. We help our clients avoid readmission and have a faster recovery period by ensuring our clients:
  • Follow their medication administration schedule designed by their doctor
  • Attend all follow-up appointments
  • Eat an appropriate diet and participate in therapy exercises
  • Receive encouragement, support and companionship throughout the recovery process

Balanced Care Method Revolutionizes Post-Stroke Care

Although day-to-day responsibilities are the foundation of home care, stroke care is about more than helping older adults maintain their homes or get in and out of bed. We believe a holistic approach is the best way to support a stroke survivor’s recovery goals and promote increased independence. With the Balanced Care Method, caregivers focus on the following:
  • Healthy Diet – Our staff will shop for groceries and prepare nutritious meals to meet new dietary needs and combat post-stroke malnutrition and weight loss. Caregivers also assist with  feeding seniors who have trouble holding utensils, chewing, or swallowing food following a stroke.
  • Physical Activity – We work closely with your loved one’s physicians and therapists to create a customized care plan that promotes physical activity and includes therapeutic exercises at home.
  • Mental Stimulation – Stroke has a direct impact on the brain, and caregivers encourage participation in puzzles, games, reading, and other activities that stimulate the brain and may help improve overall mental health.
  • Purpose – Seniors who feel they have a purpose are proven to live longer, happier, and healthier lives than those who don’t. Caregivers with experience in stroke recovery promote independence, dignity, and continued interest in social engagements, worship, and hobbies to help senior stroke survivors maintain a sense of purpose in spite of any physical or mental limitations.
