In-Home Rehabilitative Care, Caregiver
If you or your loved one experienced a major health event that resulted in hospitalization, rehabilitative therapy may be needed following discharge. Most families aren’t aware of the choices available for rehabilitative care, and believe they’re limited to nursing homes, in-patient rehab centers, or assisted living facilities. But there is another option!
At FCP Live-In, we believe everyone deserves the opportunity to rehab at home, in the comfort of familiar surroundings. Our experienced and compassionate caregivers provide a range of non-medical, rehabilitative care services custom-designed to meet your loved one’s individual needs and allow for their safe and full recovery at home.
With FCP Live-In, affordable and experienced rehabilitative care is now easier than ever.
Let us treat your loved one like family. Call us directly at 1(866) 559-9492.
Rehabilitative Care Options
Many people assume in-patient rehab centers, nursing homes or assisted living facilities offer the best options for rehabilitative therapy and care, and never even consider that they’re loved one might be better off rehabbing at home.
In-Patient Rehabilitative Care
In-patient rehab and skilled nursing homes offer 24/7 medical support and personal care, as well as occupational, physical, and speech therapy services, for patients newly discharged from the hospital. However, rather than one-on-one care, your loved one will be competing with other residents for the staff’s limited attention, including their therapists. Many facilities suffer from chronic understaffing, while constant contact with a large number of other patients increases the potential for serious infections.
There’s a good chance your loved one won’t care for the clinical atmosphere typical of in-patient facilities, especially if they’re required to share a room with another resident. The extended time away from home, combined with strict visiting hours that limit interaction with family and friends, can also lead to feelings of loneliness, and even depression.
Rehabilitative Care in Assisted Living
Some assisted living facilities offer rehabilitative care stays for patients who need help with the activities of daily life, including bathing, dressing, and meal preparation, while they rehab. Like other assisted living residents, those in rehabilitative care are provided with a private room, apartment or suite and are expected to summon help with a call button. They may receive therapy in their residence, at an onsite clinic, or be provided with transportation to an outpatient rehab facility.
While the atmosphere and level of privacy is usually an improvement over an in-patient facility, assisted living is typically very expensive, and even a short stay for rehab can diminish a patient’s financial resources fairly quickly.
Rehabilitative Care at Home
It is possible for your loved one to remain at home and receive rehabilitative therapies through a home health agency or outpatient rehab clinic. In fact, research has shown that many patients who receive rehabilitative care at home do just as well as those who receive in-patient therapy.
However, as your loved one’s primary caregiver, you will remain responsible for their daily personal care and assistance. This could be quite challenging, especially if you work or have other family obligations.
FCP Live-In Rehabilitative Caregivers help you through difficult times.
Fortunately, you don’t have to go it alone!
