The advantages of a recovery stay in a retirement home

Retirement homes offer a wide variety of services that will make your life so much better than it would be if you were to go home too early. In most retirement residences, you will find the following care options:

Perhaps the biggest benefit is the availability of nearby help, just a call button away. Daily housekeeping, easy dining, the availability of snacks and other food, are all benefits of taking a convalescent bed in any of the Ottawa retirement residences that you find listed above.

Recover at home with professional care

Home care services can be a further bridge to a full recovery. There are several home care providers in Ottawa who can further help you recover after an operation or illness. Professional home care -- most often hired at an hourly rate, but also available for 24-hour in-home stays -- can help you recover fully. Home care services listed here at Comfort Life are professionally trained and can assist you with detailed care needs, including catheter care and similar personal care for tasks of daily living. Care workers are often trained to deal with the elderly using gentle persuasion and other tactics.

Convalescent care contrasted with respite care

For our purposes here, we define convalescent care as something distinct from respite care. These definitions are followed by many (but not all) in the care industry, including Ontario's Home and Community Support Services (HCSS). Respite care is defined as focused on relief of caregiving, providing a short term stay for Ottawa seniors requiring persistent care (often dementia patients). Convalescent care is defined as recovery, often from surgery and other medical problems. Many homes offer both respite care and convalescent care as short terms stays and distinguish or define these terms differently from the way we have done so here (that's why we recently added a senior care glossary).  

Be sure to talk to the retirement residence about your distinct needs and be sure that they are prepared to offer you the care and assistance that you require.
