Recovering from a surgery or similar medical event can be a difficult, time-consuming process. At Assisting Hands, we offer post-operative care services to help in these cases.
Our highly trained caregivers will provide assistance through the transition from hospital, rehabilitation facility, or nursing home to in-home care.
The ultimate goal is to ensure a safe, effective, and stress-free recuperation and avoid setbacks.
Whether you or a loved one has endured a stroke, major surgery, heart attack, or accident, we will do everything we can to get you back on your feet. We offer both short-term and long-term care services to residents of Harwood Heights, IL, and surrounding areas.
Recovering at Home
A major reason why many patients are readmitted to the hospital is because they do not properly recover at home. There are many contributing factors as to why, but a common theme is inadequate care. Our caregivers will remain by your side to help you follow the doctor’s orders, recover faster, and avoid hospital readmission. While each patient is different, the extra attention to detail and discipline that our compassionate caregivers provide will help you on the road to a full recovery.
Ways We Can Help
At Assisting Hands, we want to make your homecoming as easy as possible. This all starts with an initial meeting between the patient and close family members. We will determine what kind of care is needed and ensure that all medical requirements are met. Our post-operative care plans are fully customizable, and can include the following and more:
- Assistance with bathing and getting dressed
- Medication reminders (including any required exercises)
- Transportation to follow-up medical appointments
- Meal preparation
- Laundry services
- Light housekeeping
Why Choose Assisting Hands?
Simply put, we offer top-notch in-home caregiving services thanks to the stringent qualifications we set for our caregivers. They must each pass a background check, receive extensive training in various caregiving services, pass CPR and first aid examinations, and display an appropriate level of genuine care and compassion.
As a result, all of our caregivers are bonded and insured to provide effective care. In the case of an emergency, we will be ready to respond rapidly. As an added benefit of working with us, you will have access to both male and female caregivers, many of whom are bilingual. We can place a caregiver in your home in 24 hours or less.
