Benefits of After Surgery Home Care
After major surgery, the body needs time to heal and recover. This process can be prolonged for adults who are elderly and/or have chronic health conditions that affect the immune system. With regular visits from one of our caregivers, your family member will have the assistance he or she needs to follow doctor's orders.
When a person lives alone, he or she may feel pressure to be too active too quickly after surgery. This can increase the risk for complications such as infection and slow healing. When our caregiver is present to help with responsibilities such as caring for pets and shopping for food, he/she will be able to rest and recover from the procedure without concerns.
Planning ahead for surgery is easier with the help of our team, too. We can help with medication reminders, shop for nutritious foods and help with other when you or your family member is discharged from the hospital.
