Even if it is hard to do, having someone there to help with day-to-day needs while also encouraging healing and healthy living can make a big difference in the long term. At Wickshire Senior Living Norman, we work closely with our clients to provide the temporary care they need to ensure long-term improvements.

Who Needs Temporary Care?
There are many potential benefits to investing in temporary care services. If you are struggling right now, don’t put it off and assume it is going to get better. Instead, invest in professionals who can provide that support. Some of the key reasons people need temporary care include:
- Suffering an injury
- Having surgery requiring recovery and rehab
- Struggling after an extended hospital stay
- Managing an illness
- Recovering from a stroke
In these situations, the goal is to build strength and work on healing. It takes time, but in the right environment, many people see significant improvement. You may be able to get right back to your life.
Why Invest in Temporary Care?
The goal of temporary care is to provide safety and encouragement to build towards recovery and improvement. Sometimes, the amount of care needed is not easy to obtain at home. Even if you have family that wants to help, they may lack the skills and time to provide constant support and healing.
Temporary care offers several benefits:
- Not being alone when you need help
- Physical and occupational support to encourage healing and recovery
- Supportive resources for improving mental health
- Support for food and nutritious diet planning
- Transportation to and from medical appointments is possible
This all depends on the type and level of care you need. You may find you need a bit more support than others. Moving into an assisted living community can provide that type of help. However, if you’re opposed to leaving your home, you may need some home healthcare services.
What Should You Look for in Temporary Care?
If you are considering a provider for temporary care, learn as much as possible about the type of care and services available. Most often, this includes assisted living services for those who may need 24-hour support and care. Other options include home health care if you need someone just to come to the home for a few hours a day.
Be sure the provider offers the type of support you need. That may include things like housekeeping, but it may also include services such as occupational and physical therapy. You may need a nurse to help with medication or wound care, too.
