Here are some of the most common surgeries we see for which home care services are required:
Recovering from joint replacement surgery can make simple tasks intense for several weeks, potentially even months. Your in-home caregivers and expert team help keep up with medications, encourage your completion of any prescribed physical therapy regimes, and keep your health strong with proper nutrition and hydration after you are discharged from the hospital.
It is very important to have reliable home care services you can trust during the recovery period of invasive procedures like major heart surgery, which generally last six to eight weeks. We can help with pain management, bathing, dressing, and running your errands, since driving is prohibited post-surgery.
Following eye surgery, your vision may not be reliable or functional for a period of time. Our care team can provide assistance with day-to-day tasks that you may not be able to do during your recovery time, including driving, and keep you from bending or lifting, which can put strain or pressure on your eye.
Surgery patients are especially at risk of catching pneumonia. They may be unable to cough and rid their bodies of harmful bacteria during surgery, and may be bedridden post-discharge, contributing to the development of pneumonia. Our trained caregivers help keep you in good overall health to minimize the risk of pneumonia from developing in your body.
