Many families face a major dilemma once their loved one goes through a surgery and is discharged from their rehab center. Simply put, the recovering individual is not yet capable of caring for themselves.
This puts the burden of care on loved ones who may or may not be equipped to care for them. At Assisting Hands Home Care, we offer post-surgical care to address these situations.
Instead of returning to a rehabilitation center or wondering how to care for a physically-limited loved one, we will step in to provide assistance. We offer these services to families in need in Westmont, IL, and the surrounding areas.
Avoiding Hospital Readmission
The greatest fear of families after a loved one is treated for a medical condition is hospital readmission. It means that something went wrong, and additional recovery efforts will be required. Through our post-surgical care services, we will monitor recovery efforts in the home to prevent this from happening.
Particularly following a surgery, it is important to follow up on all post-operative care procedures, such as exercise and mobility training. Our in-home caregivers typically assist with the following and more:
- Meal preparation
- Getting groceries and medication
- Ensuring that medication is taken in correct dosages and at the correct time of day
- Chores and other household duties
- Monitoring assigned exercises
- Safe transportation to doctor’s appointments, physical therapy, etc.
It can be easy to slack off a bit once the recovering family member is sent home; however, this often represents the most critical phase of recovery. There is no doctor or nurse there to monitor activities, and responsibilities shift to the recovering individual. By leveraging our services and expertise, your loved one will remain on the right track, experience a swifter recovery, and avoid hospital readmission.
