Returning Home Post-Discharge Care

Keeping Seniors Safe at Home in the Kitchener-Waterloo, ON area

No one likes to be in the hospital, much less returning shortly after discharge. That is why hospitals and Home Instead Senior Care are focusing on the following conditions in regard to keep seniors from being readmitted.

  • Chronic Heart Failure (CHF)
  • Acute Myocardial Infarction (AMI)
  • Pneumonia

Home Instead CAREGivers℠ can help prevent readmissions by providing or enabling:

  • A Safe Living Situation
  • Medication Monitoring
  • Proper Diet & Nutrition
  • Care Coordination
  • Help to Manage Complications
  • Access to Support Systems
  • Adherence to Plan of Care
  • CAREGiver Training

Home Instead CAREGivers℠ are trained to understand the chronic conditions some seniors live with every day. And because these conditions are not a natural part of aging, CAREGivers are trained to recognize, report and record any red flags to possibly prevent complications and emergency situations, CAREGivers work closely with the Home Instead Kitchener-Waterloo, ON office and the senior's family, as they are often times the most important resource when it comes to their loved one's level of function, illness and the medications they are taking.

Home Instead CAREGivers are trained to use "the 3 Rs":

  • Recognize the potential issues.
  • Record the warning signs.
  • Report what they see/hear.
