Recovering from a surgery is a balancing act for any individual, and particularly for seniors as they age. It is important to follow the doctor’s orders regarding medication, rehab, etc. following surgery. However, it is also important not to try to do too much and risk a setback. At Assisting Hands Home Care, we provide post-operative care to individuals recovering from surgery in Norridge, IL, to help them find this balance. We can provide assistance with general, day-to-day tasks that may be difficult or impossible to complete following a surgery.
Personalized Post Surgery Care
Whether you or a loved one is in need of care following a surgery, our caregivers have the training and expertise to address any of your non-medical needs. This simply means that we do not provide nursing services, but can help you around the house, and with any doctor’s orders. At the end of the day, it is our goal to provide exceptional services and greater peace of mind.
One way we achieve this is by requiring that our caregivers go through extensive training in providing in-home care services. Whether you need assistance with preparing meals, getting around the home, running errands, cleaning up the home, or something similar, we are more than capable of addressing your requirements. Likewise, we can provide complete care management, beginning with consultation from your discharging doctor or nurse. This allows us to better understand your unique situation. From here, our care management generally includes:
- Medication reminders
- Assistance with rehabilitation exercises
- Monitoring of changes in condition
- Help with following dieting restrictions
- Transportation to and from the doctor’s office
Through the above services, we take care of the practical elements of achieving a complete recovery. We will ensure that you complete all of your doctor’s orders in a safe and effective manner.
In addition to helping with house work and care management, we also provide you or your loved one with a companion. Limited mobility can make it difficult to participate in social gatherings, events, hobbies, physical activities, and pastimes. This can lead to loneliness and depression rather quickly. Our caregivers genuinely care about your well-being and will participate in these and similar activities to keep you engaged.
While it may be tempting to try and recover on your own, we encourage you to utilize our post-operative care services. We have found that it is much more likely for individuals to regress when they do not have a knowledgeable caregiver ensuring that they get enough rest and follow their doctor’s orders. This can lead to a longer recovery, and even potential complications.
To make use of our post operative home care services, simply contact our Assisting Hands Home Care representatives at (847) 915-6186. We will do everything we can to get you back on your feet as swiftly as possible. We offer these services to those in need in Norridge, IL.
