Setting Up a Recovery Plan

The first few weeks at home are vital to your recovery, and having someone around can help you avoid returning to the hospital due to an injury, fall or illness. Our qualified caregivers can coordinate care with your physician and/or home health company, take you to doctor appointments and ensure your medication schedule is followed as directed.

If you have been away for a few weeks or months, building your strength and working toward more independence is essential. Your caregiver will help you prepare meals, run errands, bathe and prevent falls by assisting you throughout your home. We will help you with whatever you may need so you can rest, regain your strength and get back to your daily routine. If you want to get out of the house and meet friends for a cup of coffee, your home care provider can assist you with social outings as well.

Our caregivers also offer kind and compassionate companionship throughout the recovery process. Having someone to talk to can lift your spirits and give you the support you need to keep getting better and growing stronger.

“Be aware: most falls occur in the home, where tripping hazards include area rugs and slippery bathroom floors." 2013 Journal of Injury and Violence Research study

“Each year, millions of older people—those 65 and older—fall. In fact, one out of three older people falls each year, but less than half tell their doctor. Falling once doubles your chances of falling again.” – Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

Remembering when to take your medication is extremely important:

“Non-adherence causes ~30% to 50% of treatment failures and 125,000 deaths annually” – Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

Testimonials

"We hired Home Care Book, which we needed when my mother was in rehab at The Legacy of Preston Hollow. While The Legacy was great, the aides working for Home Care Book really helped so much to put my mother, me, and our extended family at ease by being there when the staff could not be. The aides were kind and attentive, and did what they could to keep my mom calm and provide her with whatever she needed - first for 24 hours per day, and then just for overnight. My mother moved back to her regular residence where she already has aide service when needed right on the premises. But, if we ever need anyone else for whatever reason, I will definitely call Home Care Book. One important part about dealing with an agency is to feel that your contact there is responsive, responsible, and available. Nick was really great - he was always there, and even checked in frequently to see if we were satisfied and to ask how my mother was doing. Also, he worked closely with the social worker at The Legacy, so we were all on the same page about what care my mother needed. I have had several other experiences (in Florida), and this was by far the best." – Bonnie, Dallas, TX

"Making a decision to get home health care for my mom was difficult. Home Care Book helped with the ease and transition of getting support for my mom. My mom enjoys her caregivers and looks forward to them coming. Although I live out of state, Home Care Book is very responsive. I know my mom is being well taken care of by dedicated and compassionate staff. I would recommend Home Care Book to anyone that is looking for care for their loved one." – Kathy Indianapolis, IN

“Home Care Book assisted me while I recovered from my hip replacement. I was a little hesitant prior to using the service as I wasn’t sure about having caregivers in my home 24 hours a day. However, my concerns quickly disappeared after I met each of the caregivers. Home Care Book has a wonderful, responsive team. They were fantastic at communicating with my skilled home health. After a couple of months of 24-hour care, I reduced the amount of care to just 12 hours during the day. After a few more weeks, I was fully recovered and no longer needed assistance. I was very fortunate to have this service and recommend it to anyone recovering from a medical event." – Mary Highland Park, TX

 

"It’s clear Home Care Book truly cares about providing quality service. They have a responsive and knowledgeable staff." – Robert Fort Worth, TX

"Mom could not be left alone during her stay at the in-patient rehab facility. She was confused and an extreme fall risk. We needed a caregiver to be with mom as my brother and I could not stay with her around-the-clock. Home Care Book was able to complete mom’s in-person assessment within a couple of hours of calling. They had a caregiver begin staying with mom that same day. All of the caregivers that worked with mom were kind, patient and truly cared for her well-being. This is a fantastic service and I would highly recommend Home Care Book to anyone seeking home care services." – Valarie Dallas, TX

"We have been more than pleased with the team of caregivers working with mom. The medication reminders are necessary and the companionship is fantastic."  – Barbara Southlake, TX
