Martha is 61, with no family near by and has always been independent and mobile. However, last month, she broke her two ankles, had to be hospitalised for two weeks and is now wheel-chair bound owing to a recent fall.
Options for discharge from hospital is either residential respite (which she isn’t too fond of) or home with caregiver support. She opted for the latter. From organising home modifications via the Occupational Therapists (e.g. ramps, chair raisers), meal preparation, housecleaning, to ongoing wound care, to helping Martha pay bills, organise the gardener, transport to and from medical appointments – Home Instead is able to provide full care management support and 24 hour around-the-clock care until Martha has fully recovered.
