Life is often all about change. When we’re children, we grow up, hit puberty, and have to deal with those changes. We get into high school and have new friends, new experiences, and new challenges. When we graduate, we have to choose to go to college, or go to work, and find a way to begin providing for ourselves. For those individuals, seniors and otherwise, who have been hospitalized due to injuries, a medical emergency, major surgery, or something else, this is going to present itself as another time to figure out how to adapt to these changes.
Sometimes, finding a new way to do things can help.
For a senior who was hospitalized following a stroke, for example, they may be facing a lengthy recovery. Their doctor may be tempered in their enthusiasm or have basically said this individual is not going to get back to using certain parts of their body, walking again, and more.
That doesn’t mean the senior has to give up.
A person who has lost mobility, the ability to perform certain tasks, and do other things doesn’t have to give up on life. They simply need to adapt, find new ways to do things, or rely on the right type of support. It’s important that people focus on recovery and what they can get back to doing to keep them motivated.
It’s also important to help reduce hospital readmission rates.
A hospital readmission is any time somebody needs to be readmitted within 30 days of their discharge date. While the federal government is paying closer attention to these readmission rates, hospitals and doctors are providing more information and support resources to patients upon discharge. That’s important for many reasons.
Some of these support resources can be an encouragement to rely on home care aide or other provider.
These caregivers can provide physical and emotional support to seniors and others who have been hospitalized. The more experience a caregiver has, the more likely he or she can offer insight and maybe even new strategies on how to do certain things, perform certain tasks, and get through the difficult moments of recovery.
Just because a person can no longer do certain things the same way they did before doesn’t mean they have to give up. Finding a way to motivate these individuals to discover new ways to do things can inspire and provide just what they need for their future.
