After being hospitalized, the majority of patients prefer to convalesce at home. Aging retirees also have a preference for home based care rather than residing in a nursing center, since they will be familiar with the surroundings and will have help with cleaning, bathing and cooking.
About Our Senior Physical Therapy Program
The home health care that we provide at Aston Gardens At Parkland Commons reduces the likelihood of injuries or hospital readmission. Studies show that patients recovering from surgery or illness are at a greater risk of falls or accidents in a hospital setting when compared to staying at home.
Additionally, some elders do not require assistance with post-surgery care or medications, which means that they will be better off at home where they will have access to a familiar setting as well as cooking and other forms of daily living.
Benefits of Having Physical Therapy Programs in Your Retirement Community
The greatest benefit of home care is the access to both occupational and physical therapy. Some retirees who have had surgery will need physical therapy afterwards and they prefer to do it in a place that they’re comfortable with. We provide quality physical therapy services at Aston Gardens At Parkland Commons, and our dwellings are ergonomically designed to reduce the incidence of falls and accompanying injuries.
Having a professional on hand who can care for your loved one takes the weight off your shoulders. They can provide close monitoring when necessary and due to advances in technology there are now wearable devices which can constantly check a patient’s respiratory or cardiac status. In the past, such electronics were only available in hospitals settings but can now be used at home.
When Should You Consider Moving into a Retirement Community?
Our retirement community is ideal for retirees that want to have access to home care, twenty four hour monitoring and state of the art technology. It is now possible to perform intravenous medicine at home and there are specialty pharmacies that can provide the needed tools. The home care services we provide are effective, safe and will prevent hospitalization.
Those who have loved ones that are advanced in age can speak with a professional to visit their residence to perform an assessment to determine if relocation is the right decision. By living with us they will have access to a supportive environment which will assist them with daily living.
