Get Post-Surgery Care In-Home Instead of in Long-Term Care
When patients who have recently had surgery get discharged from the hospital or rehabilitation center, they usually aren’t able to completely care for themselves right away. As such, family members are burdened with the responsibility of caring for them, but they might not have the time or ability to do so.
When an elderly relative is discharged after surgery, families have to figure out what kind of post-surgery care their elderly loved one needs and where such care can happen.
Patients do not want to be admitted to a nursing home or other facility for long-term post-operative care. Rather, it is their desire to be at home on their own, but it isn’t possible to be there alone safely.
