Going through surgery is a difficult experience no matter what age, but it can be especially difficult for older adults. The doctor’s instructions must be followed in the first days and weeks after surgery or you could experience pain or complications.
It is important for those who have returned from surgery to follow instructions from the doctor, take medications at the right time, and take it easy so they don’t experience a setback that will put them back in the hospital.

Professional Post-Operative Care
In some instances, a family member can provide assistance when a loved one returns from surgery, but this is nearly impossible when relatives live far away. Our trained and licensed caregivers can step in and provide care if your loved ones need assistance after surgery. A member of our staff will meet with the discharge manager at the hospital, with your permission, to understand the discharge instructions and make sure our caregiver is informed of these instructions.
Our caregiver will ensure that these instructions are followed and communicate openly with family members to provide updates on their progress.
