Recovery from Hospitalization:
Research Shows What Works
The Cura model for home care is based on research* that outlines necessary services that help seniors and individuals recovering from hospitalization to thrive at home and reduce the need for expensive medical care and re-hospitalization.
At Cura, we are on a mission to transform homecare for seniors and individuals recovering from hospitalization. In addition to physical needs, Cura addresses social & emotional needs to ensure a happy, active and healthy lifestyle.
We are available for 24-hour care, respite care, or as needed, with affordable care. Cura caregivers are trained and skilled in providing personal care and hygiene, meals and transportation and assistance with all activities of daily living.
Research cautions that isolation and depression are key risk factors following hospitalization.
Cura home care encourages healthy, active, and social lifestyles that engage families, friends and churches. From home exercise programs to attending activities with friends or at home, we're committed to improving your health and the quality of life at home.
We work with doctors & medical teams to provide efficient quality care that reduces the need for re-hospitalization.
Research shows that when patients with multiple health problems require intensive medical and behavioral health care services, their high-need, high-cost services is expensive and requires professional care by trained givers.
