The need for convalescence care

The population is changing so there are many more older people. Health providers have cash problems, which limit how long they want people to stay. Medical opinion is now that most people recover quicker away from a hospital, in their own or a relative's home. After a major operation, the patient may not be able fully to look after themselves. They may have a partner, son or daughter who can care for them. But with more people living alone and more couples working full time, there is often no one home. In theory, the local authority and local health providers should arrange help, but with stretched resources this is often limited to short daily visits.

 

What is a convalescence care plan?

An insurance to cover the costs of professional care, from help with shopping, cleaning and cooking, to full nursing care on a 24 hour basis.
