Recovering at home

As patients get ready to return home after going through surgery, medical treatments, or hospitalization, carefully planning and preparing the transition from hospital care to home recovery is essential. Much like how hospitals provide quality bedside care to patients, it is best to receive the same level of support at home. Feeling secure and cared for, both mentally and physically, is what patients need in making a full recovery.

Getting help from a caregiver at home in Calgary ensures personalized care during the home recovery period. Aside from providing support at home, we also assist in-hospital care and discharge services. Here at Care Within Reach, we commit ourselves to provide the best pre-and post-procedure care experience for our clients.

Pre-procedure care

Being hospitalized for medical care can come with a lot of mental and physical stress. Additionally, different medical procedures such as surgery can have specific requirements that the patient must strictly follow. Our client support starts from assisting with hospital preparation and providing the necessary care aide to help the patient be ready for treatment.

Leaving the hospital

Our services also include helping our clients discharge from the hospital. We communicate with the hospital to anticipate the type of care and medical attention our client will need as they get back to their home life.

Recovery support

No one should have to recover on their own, especially for seniors and the differently-abled. We provide the proper support for our clients during their home recovery through a customized care plan curated from both the patient and licensed practical nurse’s feedback.

Care Assurance while recovering at your own residence

Your residence is the ideal place to recuperate. Staying in the comfort of your own place brings a sense of privacy, ease, and familiarity that can help you thrive and keep a positive frame of mind while on the road to recovery. However, this is only possible with the right help and support around you.

Your support system

Although family members and friends may offer a helping hand during your recovery process, there is a limitation to their assistance because of various factors like work, location, commitments, and other responsibilities. While this is understandable, it is still best that you receive consistent and all-around support while you get back on your feet.

Healing does not happen overnight, and during that process, doing even the simplest tasks might require significant effort. As you recover and regain your strength, it is important not to overexert yourself doing intense activities like chores or running errands. Doing so can slow down your recovery, or worse, send you back to the hospital.

Also, recovering on your own with little to minimal guidance can, at times, take a wrong turn. You may not be able to notice the changes in your body that indicate a problem or have lapses in distinguishing a symptom that may need immediate medical attention. 

In this situation, opting to depend on a support worker is the ideal solution as you will have the support of a trained health care aide while recovering. As they manage your basic needs, health, and daily living, you can allow yourself to focus all your energy on getting better.

Providing the best at-home support

Our priority is to be your trusted support system and care aide as you make a full recovery. You can expect our experienced and qualified professional support workers to provide holistic treatment and all-around assistance.

Personal Care and Hygiene

As you recover, having limited mobility or feeling weary may make taking care of your personal needs by yourself difficult. Our health care aides are here to provide comfortable and dignified assistance with tasks such as bathing, toileting, and grooming.

Light Housekeeping

Having a clean and tidy environment is beneficial for your overall health. Apart from taking care of our client’s personal care needs, we also assist in basic homemaking. We’re here to help maintain routine housekeeping duties in Calgary and keep your home cleanliness up to your standards.

Meal planning

Eating right is an integral part of keeping healthy. You can rely on us to plan and prepare your meals throughout the day, making sure to follow dietary plans and avoid any allergens accordingly.

Managing Medication

We assist in managing our client’s medication and make sure they are taken on time and at the correct dosage. Our health care aides are also there to help with cleaning wounds, replacing dressings, physical therapy, and other at-home medical needs.

Emotional Needs

We understand that recovery is not an easy and straightforward process. Aside from assisting around your household, our all around-care accounts for your mental and emotional well-being as well. As we help you in regaining your health, we also offer our companionship along the way.

Here at Care Within Reach, we value communicating and listening to what you have to say regarding the type of care you want to experience. As we create your personalized care plan, we actively work together with our licensed practical nurses and consider your preferences and feedback. We strive not only to attend to your needs but also ensure a pleasant experience.

Treating out-of-province patients

Thanks to the many advances in healthcare and modern medicine, patients can receive the best medical treatments available. However, some of these elaborate and complex treatments require out-of-province travel for specialized care. 

We recognize that many patients may need additional care and support while being treated outside their hometown or province. As such, we at Care Within Reach are happy to accommodate your needs. Our at-home caregiver in Calgary services are open to patients flying in from outside the province.

Recovering at home with ease

Undergoing medical procedures, being hospitalized, and working on recovery are challenging experiences to go through alone or without consistent help, especially if you are at a tender age or have other disabilities, sicknesses, or difficulties. In times like these, acquiring professional care services is the best decision for your recovery and general health.

Having someone to rely on, talk to, and manage your needs can do wonders in helping you make a full recovery. Let Care Within Reach be your helping hand! 

Our care consultations are free of charge with no commitments. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions regarding this service.
