A lot of adults and seniors find it is difficult to make the transition home after staying at the hospital for an illness or surgery. At the time of discharge, not many people are at full strength, so they will have a tough time caring for themselves. In addition, in many cases there are special instructions such as follow up medical appointments, prescriptions for new medications, and medical equipment. Doing too much and neglecting discharge instructions can easily lead to a trip back to the hospital. But with after-surgery care at home, you or your loved ones will have the transitional care needed to make a full recovery.
Our caregivers can provide post surgery care for the following conditions:
- After hernia surgery

“From our first interaction with the owner and staff of Assisting Hands in West Palm Beach, we felt their desire to meet our particular needs in the care of our aging parent with limited mobility. They understood that she wished to stay in her home and wanted her own high standards of housekeeping and care maintained. Assisting Hands worked with the family to put in place the very best caregivers possible for our parent. The love, professionalism, dependability, and attention to detail shown by the caregivers and the staff was beyond our highest expectations. Communication was consistent, courteous, and excellent. Our family--living and working at some distance from our parent-- felt supported. Our parent felt comforted, loved, cared for, and secure in her own home, as we had hoped. Assisting Hands became an extension of our family.”
“I highly recommend this agency! Marina and her staff are caring, creative, and reassurring in helping me manage my mom from across the country.”
“An honest caring company. When my father needed care, Assisting Hands Home Care was top notch.”
“A message from my mom....... About 8 months ago I realized I needed to get help. My husband was into his 10th year of Alzheimer. After interviewing a few care-giving agencies, I decided on Assisting Hands. I felt Marina was not only professional, but she also really understood the qualities we needed in a caregiver. Ivonne has been with us for about seven months and she definitely fits our needs. We sincerely appreciate Marina, Ivonne and the staff for their help and guidance! ~ Maria, Lake Worth”
