Recovering from an operation can be a long and daunting prospect for anyone, particularly seniors. The transition from the hospital to a rehabilitation facility to home is only the beginning. At this point, the patient can still need significant assistance to accomplish day-to-day tasks.
At Assisting Hands, we offer complete post-operative care services to help individuals recovering from a surgery. Whether you need short-term or long-term care, our caregivers will do everything they can to make your recovery as quick and painless as possible. We offer our recovery assistance services to individuals in need in Niles, IL, and the surrounding areas.
Who Can Benefit from Post-Operative Care
Anybody who has undergone a major surgery, or who suffers from lingering side effects, can benefit from our caregiving services. This is because of the difficulties many have with everyday tasks given their unique situations.
The individuals we help range from adults recovering from hip surgeries to seniors recovering from strokes or heart attacks. No matter your circumstances, our caregivers will offer a compassionate, helping hand to make the recovery process smooth, and reduce the risk of hospital readmission.
How Our Experienced Caregivers Can Help
Having a highly trained caregiver by your side can make the recovery process quicker and less painful. It can also reduce the stress placed on family members who might otherwise be required to lend their time and efforts. Through our services, we can help on multiple fronts (although they will vary depending on your unique needs). They include:
- Maintaining personal hygiene
- Changing clothes
- Medication reminders
- Driving to medical appointments
- Performing rehabilitation exercises
- Preparing meals
- Doing laundry
- Cleaning up the home
Before we begin our services, we will sit down with the affected individual and their family members in order to determine a proper care plan. As we provide our services, they can always be adjusted to meet changing needs. Ensuring that your loved one receives the care they need is our top priority.
Highly Trained and Diverse Caregivers
Our Assisting Hands caregivers are bonded and insured to provide in-home caregiving services. They are also trained and certified in both CPR and first aid in order to be prepared in the case of an emergency. To further customize our care, we offer the services of male and female caregivers, many of whom are bilingual. If need be, we can place the perfect caregiver in your home in 24 hours or less.
We currently operate in Niles, IL, and surrounding areas, and look forward to assisting you soon. No matter your needs, it is our goal to provide a safe, swift, and smooth recovery process. The cost of these services can be covered by long term care insurance.
