13: 9 Things to Consider After Hospital Discharge
Show Notes

It can be stressful when someone you love is discharged from the hospital. How much care will be needed? Will medications change? Is special equipment necessary? How and who will provide care at home?

In this episode, we talk about what you should consider after hospital discharge. These are; 

  • Patient Restrictions and Activities
  •  Health Care Tasks
  • Special Diets
  • Medication Management
  •  Follow-up Care
  • Equipment and Supplies
  • Home Safety
  • Medical Expenses
  • Other Financial Issues

After everything has been considered, create a care plan that goes hand-in-hand with the discharge plan. Remember that you don't have to do everything on your own; hiring professional in-home caregiver services for even just a few hours per week can ensure your loved one’s care plan is completed and provide family caregivers some time to focus on personal needs.
