Postoperative care revolves around the care a patient receives after a surgical procedure. Not only is immediate attention provided to the patient who undergoes an operation, but care continues during the initial recovery period and throughout successive outpatient visits.
The elderly who receive surgical treatments not only benefit from close observation subsequent to an operation, but experience a sense of comfort during the healing process knowing that compassionate, post-surgery care is readily available. Seniors who are unable to provide self-care can rely on non-medical caregivers to lend a helping hand.
Assisting Hands Home Care Serving Miami, FL offers a dependable postoperative program that focuses on our senior clients who have just undergone surgery. Our comprehensive approach to postoperative care for the elderly involves a host of non-medical services to safely transition individuals from the hospital to their home with ease.
Reliable Post-Operative Care
Our non-medical, post-hospitalization care services start with communicating the attending doctor’s discharge orders to the family. We keep our client’s primary care physician up to date about after-surgery instructions by faxing over a copy of the discharge orders. Caregivers make sure to follow up with the individual’s doctors about making appointments for labs, tests or additional appointments. After the necessary paperwork is handled, Assisting Hands Serving Miami aides carefully transport seniors from the hospital to their place of residence.
Once home, Assisting Hands care providers become an invaluable source of daily support. Our skilled caregivers ensure the home is safely set up to ensure the recently hospitalized senior rests comfortably and can move about without obstructions. Our helpful aides also shop for fresh groceries and prepare meals that meet our client’s dietary restrictions (if any). If laundry needs to be done, our accommodating caregivers make sure to check it off their list. Assisting Hands Serving Miami aides also assist with routine activities, like bathing, grooming and dressing.
Medications for pain management are frequently prescribed upon undergoing surgery. Assisting Hands caregivers pick up any existing medications from the pharmacy and clearly relay the physician’s instructions on dosage and frequency to prevent any possible errors. We fax any new prescription orders to the individual’s primary care physician. We also gently remind our senior clients when it’s time to take prescribed medications.
