Going through surgery can be tough on anyone and there is always a difficult recovery and rehabilitation process that follows before the patient regains some normalcy. Medical operations are especially difficult for senior citizens and adults with disabilities. The surgery itself is physically exhausting and the recovery process can be difficult without additional help. It is very important for those recovering from surgery to follow the instructions from their doctor so that they can recover without any setbacks. If someone who has recently returned home from surgery tries to do too much, they could experience a setback or additional pain that will make the recovery process longer.
At Assisting Hands, we can help senior citizens and adults recovering from surgery with our post-operative home care services. Our trained caregivers provide excellent after surgery care that includes care coordination and medication reminders, as well as light housekeeping so your loved ones can focus on regaining their strength. We understand that helping your family members with their surgery recovery can be difficult and having no one to help them increases the risk of a complication. You can rest assured that our caregivers will accommodate your loved ones’ care needs and keep them comfortable to help them make a full recovery.
