Convalescent care is just one of the many services that we offer here at Anglia Care. If you’re unsure of what it is or if you’re thinking about this type of care for you or your loved one, we’ve put together an article to help answer any questions that you might have.
What is convalescent care?
Convalescence literally means the gradual recovery of health after an illness or injury. People have convalescent care to help them if their illness or injury prevents them from doing the things they usually do.
Why do we need convalescent care?
Examples of people who might need convalescent care can include individuals who have recently had surgery and are ready to go home, but have nobody to help look after them while they recover. Convalescent care isn’t just limited to the elderly, Anglia Care offer convalescent care to people of all ages.
What’s different about Anglia Care’s convalescent care service?
Many convalescent care services are dealt with at care homes, meaning the person in question will be in unfamiliar surroundings while they recover. However, as Anglia Care specialises in home care, our carers will ensure that you are comfortable at home and can help you in whatever way you need. This means that your loved one can be as independent as they can be and happy in their own home.
If you have an unexpected hospital stay or illness, you can be rest-assured that Anglia Care can help you through our convalescent care service.
