6 things you need to know_111915On Thursday, November 19, One Senior Place University will be hosting a consumer educational event titled Six Things You Need to Know After Your Hospital Stay. MSA Home Health, a division of Medical Services of America, is sponsoring the event, which will run from 3 to 4:30 p.m.

As we get older, visits to the hospital sometimes become unavoidable. And once you have a hospital stay, your risk of returning goes up depending on your illness and how you respond to your treatment or procedure. Decisions you need to make once you get home are not always clear, but it’s important you do the right things to expedite your recovery and take charge of your health so you don’t have to go back anytime soon.

“The bottom line is that you can avoid unnecessary future hospital stays,” stresses Emily Stowers, MSW, Aging Services Manager at One Senior Place in Altamonte Springs. “The purpose of this event is to empower people with the knowledge they need so they can make a difference when it comes to recovering from a hospital stay and also make sure they have the proper resources at their disposal in order to stay well and stay out of the hospital.

Come join us to learn critical strategies on how to communicate effectively with your doctors after your hospital stay, how to ensure you have the proper support system and services in place in order to recover properly, and how to become an advocate for your health in order to avoid future hospital visits.
