A Skilled Home Health Aide Team For Transitioning Home in Milwaukee, WI
An experienced home health aide can assist in a smooth transition home after a hospitalization
A hospital visit, even for a routine procedure, can leave your body vulnerable and weakened. Your actions immediately after a hospital stay can be critical to your overall health and long-term recovery. The lack of proper care following surgery or a serious hospitalization can lead to a delayed recovery. In worst-case scenarios, this can include readmission to the hospital for further treatment. While family members might initially volunteer to care for you or a loved one after a hospital stay, they are often not prepared and not trained for the full scope of care you will need. They might be willing, but be unable to perform safe mobility assistance or provide round-the-clock care. This is where a home health aide can come in!
Comfort Keepers of Milwaukee, WI offers senior in home care services to ease the transition home with our professional, and highly trained staff.
What is Transitioning Care?
This specialized care at home helps ease your loved one’s transition from a hospital stay. At a hospital or medical clinic, there are doctors, nurses and orderlies constantly attending to needs. Going from there to home without any assistance can leave you or your loved one overwhelmed and unable to properly relax and recover. Transitioning care puts you in touch with a trained home health aide that can support you and your loved one.
Transitional care eases the switch from a medical facility to the comfort of your home by continuing to provide necessary services while you recover.
Our team works with the support and recovery plan laid out by your doctors to ensure you have the best service available. Some of the services Comfort Keepers of Milwaukee, WI provides include the following:
- Performing household chores, including meal preparation, housekeeping, and other errands
- Transportation for follow-up doctor’s visits
- Communication with the medical team as needed
Whether you’re facing a long or short road to recovery, healing should be your first priority. A home health aide can help you focus on getting better by taking care of household distractions including doing the laundry, cooking and grocery shopping. If you are left temporarily immobile or unable to move easily, our trained caregivers have the tools to safely move you around your home, including lifting you into and out of a bathtub.

Flexible Transitioning Home Care Helps American Veteran
Mike had many strokes, heart attacks and amputations over the course of his lifetime. He endured long stays in hospitals and nursing homes but was always grateful to get back to his own home as soon as possible.
Not only did Mike serve honorably in the Army, he had a career at AT&T spanning over 30 years. The last thing he wanted for his well-earned retirement was to be permanently moved to a nursing home.
Mike returned home from the hospital after a recent procedure with the help of Comfort Keepers and his positive attitude for being alive was evident.
By being in the comfort of his own home, he knew “it could be worse” if he was stuck in the hospital. What a spirit of gratitude!
Mike said “he loves his Debra and Comfort Keepers’ ability to increase or lower hours according to his needs.” He can remain as independent as possible yet get the care he needs after each hospital trip.
Mike is an inspiration to Comfort Keepers as to how we should live our lives. Thanks Mike for serving our country!
