With all of the changes to health care in the last few years, many patients are being discharged from rehab centers after an illness or surgery without fully being able to care for themselves. That leaves the burden of responsibility on family members, who may not be equipped or have the time to care for them.
The family is left wondering what type of post-surgical care their senior loved one needs and where that should take place. The patient does not want to be placed in a nursing home or other longer-term post-operative care facility. They want to be in their own home but cannot safely be there by themselves.
