4 Ways to Make Loved Ones Comfortable After a Hospital Stay, Ewa, Hawaii

Following an extended period of time in the hospital, your loved one will need help transitioning back into their home and everyday life. For instance, they might need transportation services to doctor’s appointments and more accessible household environments. Here are some ways you can assist friends and family members after an injury or illness.

How to Make a Loved One Comfortable After a Hospital Stay

1. Help Them Install Medical Equipment

Your loved one may need a variety of medical gear and equipment after a stint in the hospital. For instance, recovering patients may need oxygen tanks, blood sugar monitors, nebulizers, and CPM machines. Move these items into the patient’s home and set them up. 

2. Make the Home Accessible
