Post-Operative Home Care Services
Post-Operative Care is Key to a Successful Recovery
Any time someone has surgery, there’s usually a period of recovery. This period includes lots of rest and a routine to help you return to normal activities as soon as possible.
Depending on the extent of the surgery, most patients will need help for days after the surgery. Most will need help until they have recovered and can resume normal activities. That’s where Home Helpers can be of help.
After surgery, there are many details to manage. It's important that the patient is comfortable and their surgical dressings are clean. They also need to take their medication on time and make sure they tend to their immediate needs. Depending on the surgery, the doctor will provide the patient with orders to follow. These orders give guidance on how the patient will get up and move around to maintain the body’s functions.
To help the patient have the best recovery, we'll assign them a certified nursing aide. Only the physician can help you decide whether you need extended care around the clock. One benefit of having a caregiver is ensuring the patient is comfy, safe, and as pain-free as possible. Having the post-surgery support is key to reducing recovery time and helping the patient return to normal life. Post-surgery support is the best way to ensure your recovery time is quick and the healthy.
What to Expect from Post-Surgery Care
When you come home from the hospital, you might experience some fatigue. You may also notice that you might be feeling pain and might be very fatigued. This is very common and should not alarm you. It is your body’s way of kicking into its God-given healing mode, which helps you to rest. You can save all your energy for healing and recovery. It's important that when you come home from the hospital, you and your family are aware of the help you might need.
If you come from a big family, you already know that well-meaning relatives want to help, but busy schedules often make that difficult. Most loved ones would rather spend their time hanging out with you, rather than overseeing your medical needs. This is the perfect time to bring in a qualified home health worker who can free family up to just be a support system.
