Transition from Hospital to Home

(NC)-There's nothing more comforting than recovering in your own home after a hospital stay.

The first few days of recovery are the most critical, and it is always recommended to have someone assist you. But if that's not an option, here are some helpful tips to make your return home as safe, enjoyable and hassle-free as possible.


Create a Comfort Zone

Prior to your hospital visit, set up a "comfort zone" on one floor of your home - preferably near a bathroom, with a temporary bed, and make sure a telephone is within reach. Other items including bottled water, snack foods, TV remote, movies, magazines… even your favourite pillow - should be pre-stocked and nearby.


Enter and Exit with Ease

You're finally home and all you want to do is relax, but when you get to the stairs you realize they're much harder to handle than before. Since most houses require the use of stairs to enter and exit, it's important to ensure the handrails are secure and can withstand pressure. Designer hand grips are an easy and ideal addition to home danger zones.


Make the Commode Accommodating

It's a fact of life - the bathroom is the one room you can't avoid while on the road to recovery, and it has the potential to be the most dangerous. Many people find the toilet seat is too low to accommodate their limited mobility and puts unnecessary stress on the legs, knees and back. An elevated toilet seat increases comfort and safety levels.

Home Care by Moen offers a locking elevated toilet seat that subtly complements the décor of any bathroom, and locks securely on round and elongated toilet rims. Or if the bath is just too far for you to reach, Home Care can also give you a new premium bedside commode for added safety and comfort - right next to the bed.


Shower Safely

Showering always seems to make you feel better - but getting in and out of the tub or shower can be quite a dilemma. Try using a transfer bench that provides comfort and stability, like Home Care by Moen's new premium transfer bench. This high-quality transfer bench offers an ergonomically designed back and spacious seat with a curved end for optimal support and comfort. Plus, it comes equipped with a basket organizer and handheld shower holder to keep necessary items conveniently close.

The best advice? Relax and take it easy - with a few, minor modifications, your home will be a safe haven for recuperating and you'll be well on your way to a full recovery.
