Get Post Surgery Care In Home Instead of in Long Term Care
With all of the changes to health care in the last few years, many patients are being discharged from rehab centers after an illness or surgery without fully being able to care for themselves. That leaves the burden of responsibility on family members, who may not be equipped or have the time to care for them.
The family is left wondering what type of post surgery care their senior loved one needs and where that should take place. The patient does not want to be placed in a nursing home or other longer-term post operative care facility. They want to be in their own home, but cannot safely be there by themselves.
Our caregivers can assist a patient with post surgery care until they have recuperated
The caregivers at Assisting Hands® can provide post surgery care to your aging loved one in their own home after surgery or an illness until they have recuperated. After surgery, it is important to follow all post operative care procedures.
Our caregivers will ensure that their client is following all of the post surgery instructions, whether it is related to the type of food they should eat, medications they should take, physical therapy they should be doing, or activities that they should avoid.
In fact, our caregivers can provide many post operative services to their rehabbing clients, including:
- Cooking healthy meals
- Getting prescriptions, food or other necessities
- Supervising medication intake
- Helping with chores or other household activities
- Providing safe transportation to doctors, physical therapy or other appointments
There are other post operative care services Assisting Hands can provide to our clients depending on their needs. If your aging loved one could benefit from additional companionship, help with household chores, or assistance with daily living activities after their rehabilitation period, some or all of these services could be extended.
