At Assisting Hands Home Care, we provide post-surgical care services to help senior citizens and adults in Downers Grove, IL who have recently had surgery. Our caregivers will help ease the hospital to home transition by handling household tasks and providing the care your loved ones need to rest and recover.
As the cost of medical care continues to surge, so does the demand for patients to be discharged early. If you have an aging loved one who has been in the hospital for an illness or surgery, there’s a chance you’ll have to get post-operative care for him/her.
Rather than leaving a loved one in a long-term nursing facility while they recover, Assisting Hands Home Care caregivers can provide patients in Downers Grove, IL and the surrounding areas of DuPage and Cook Counties with proper post-operative care in his/her own place of residence (See Full List of Service Areas).
Give us a call at (630) 413-9899 to schedule your free consultation and discuss your needs and how we can help.
The Need for Post-Operative Care in Downers Grove
Our caregivers at Assisting Hands Home Care can provide the help your loved one needs while recovering — no matter the type of service. Post-operative care gives your loved one the opportunity to recuperate within the comfort of his/her own home instead of within a care facility or nursing home.
Through our care, our home health aides are able to help clients during their temporary recovery period. Such care is particularly important because it can hinder the most prevalent causes for readmission to the hospital.
Why Assisting Hands Home Care?
Our home health aides are trained to carefully follow all of the after-surgery care instructions from the doctor, nurse, or discharge coordinator. This includes their details regarding their diet, medications, physical therapy exercises, and activities to avoid.
When you’re unable to provide assistance, our caregivers will be there to do just that, helping with a myriad of services that will help your loved one recuperate and avoid hospital readmission such as:
- Safe, reliable transportation from a rehab facility or hospital to your loved one’s home
- Getting groceries, prescriptions, and other necessary items
- Making healthy meals
- Overseeing intake for medications
- Helping with everyday activities as your loved one regains strength
- Transportation to and from doctor’s appointments
