What to Expect from Our Post-Operative Care Services
Whether your aging loved one needs help with personal care such as bathing or dressing, eating, walking, medication reminders, or other post-surgery care, the caregivers at Assisting Hands Home Care will provide the assistance they need during their recuperation.
This post-operative care also allows them to stay home versus spending time in a nursing home or assisted living facility.
Our home health aides can provide the post-operative care our clients need to bridge the gap during this interim recovery period. This after-surgery care can help prevent the most common reasons for hospital re-admission.
Why Choose Assisting Hands Home Care?
Each of our caregivers has been trained to follow all post-operative care instructions from the doctor, nurse, or discharge coordinator. This includes the types of foods they should eat, which medications and at what times, physical therapy appointments, and activities to avoid.
We can help after surgery when you can’t be there
When you cannot be there, our caregivers can help with a variety of services to prevent hospital re-admission, including:
- Providing safe transportation for your aging loved one and their belongings from the hospital or rehab facility to their home
- Picking up prescriptions, groceries or other supplies
- Preparing nutritious meals
- Monitoring medication intake
- Assisting with daily activities while your aging loved one continues to gain strength
