New Hampshire Home Care

There’s no doubt that the best part of any hospital stay is the day you’re discharged! But for many older adults, a discharge can actually be the first step towards a hospital readmission if steps aren’t taken to ensure an easy transition from hospital to home. One way to help your senior loved one have a smooth transition following a hospital stay is to enlist the services of a professional New Hampshire home care agency, like Live Free Home Health Care, for help with:

  • Transportation home from the care facility and to follow-up doctor visits
  • Assistance with in-home medical equipment or telehealth
  • A home assessment to improve home safety
  • Help with bathing, dressing, and grooming
  • Ambulation assistance
  • Exercise/activity assistance and supervision as allowed by the doctor
  • Meal planning and preparation in accordance with special dietary needs
  • Providing care for pets during recovery
  • Connections to helpful community resources

Through consistent care visits, caregivers can also recognize any changes in health and take immediate action to avoid complications or rehospitalization. Our professional New Hampshire home care aides are trained to recognize these and other important health indicators following surgery or a hospitalization:

  • Post-operative infection
  • Medication side effects
  • Swelling in the extremities
  • Shortness of breath
  • Dizziness
  • Unexplained fatigue
  • Changes in fluid intake or output
  • Signs of a blood clot
