Rehabilitation

People often underestimate the toll that injury or illness takes on retirees. Patients over the age of 65 typically lose muscle strength at three times the normal rate during illness, and it is more difficult for seniors to regain former ability. Even patients who received rehabilitation services at inpatient facilities should receive some rehabilitation on an in-home basis to ensure that recovery proceeds according to plan. For retirees, in-home rehabilitation is usually indicated after:

  • Prolonged bed rest
  • Prolonged injury recovery where a part of the body has had limited motion during recovery
  • An accidental fall - especially if any sort of injury occurred
  • Orthopedic surgery such as
    • hip replacement
    • knee replacement
    • shoulder surgery
  • Stroke
  • Cardiovascular injury such as myocardial infarction (heart attack)

 

 

Post-Surgical Care

After any surgery, patients are typically sent home with unhealed wounds, medications, and a compromised ability to perform normal activities of daily living. International Home Healthcare provides the wound care, rehabilitation, and human assistance needed to ensure optimal recovery from surgery while patients are at home.
