Providing in Home Post Surgery Care Instead of Long Term Rehab
As the cost of medical care continues to surge, there’s a desire for hospitals and rehab facilities to get patients out immediately.
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 leave a loved one in a long-term nursing facility while they recover, Assisting Hands Home Care – Chicago caregivers can give clients in Downers Grove, IL necessary post-surgery care from within his/her own place of residence.
Our caregivers at Assisting Hands Home Care – Chicago provide all the help your loved one needs while recovering — no matter what he/she needs assistance with, from bathing to eating to getting around the house.
Such a service of postoperative 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.
By providing post-operative 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.
