Recovery Care

Recovery Care reduces the risk of readmission

Caring for your loved one after a hospital discharge often requires specialized care and home care services.  After a hospital stay, returning back home can be difficult and present new challenges for your elderly loved one.  Elderly individuals can face a roller coaster of emotions during the transition.  If a senior has become more frail or lost their independence, getting re-acclimated may require additional services, such as physical therapy, visiting nurses and increased assistance with daily activities.  Home Health Professionals such as visiting nurses, physical therapist, physicians, and social workers will assess the needs and how best to care for your loved one once they are back home.  Gentle Shepherd Home Care is there to ensure your loved ones caregivers are being proactive and communications among the care team is happening.
