Did you know? Although pneumonia may require hospitalization, much of the recovery process can take place within the comfort of your own home. Home recovery is a key step when it comes to regaining strength and getting back to our favorite activities. This process can include: Following a doctor’s treatment plan Eating nutritious food and drinking plenty of water Getting ample sleep to aid the body’s healing process Using a cool mist humidifier or vaporizer to aid breathingManaging pneumonia recovery at home can be challenging when done alone, and a caregiver by your side can make all the difference. At Comfort Keepers, our goal is to provide all the means necessary to ensure a successful recovery.
