When most people think of home care, they think of aging seniors needing assistance with daily tasks but they don’t often consider post-surgery home care help. Home care is also essential in supporting ANYONE after an invasive surgery. There are countless post-surgical situations where home care could provide much needed assistance and relief to patients and/or caregiving family members. Here are a few.
Home care can be of assistance to mothers of newborns. Perhaps she had a c-section and has other children at home to care for, a spouse that works full time and no extended family to help. Perhaps the child was born with special needs and the situation has created added stress to the household. Having a loving caregiver assist with things like meal prep and light housekeeping can provide some much needed relief.
After major surgery
Hip replacements, knee replacements and other major surgeries can limit ones ability to navigate showers, meal preparation, driving to run errands, etc. Some temporary home care assistance through the post-operative recovery can ease the burden. We partner with many home healthcare companies that provide Physical and Occupational Therapy (PT/OT) so during those off days when PT or OT are not planned, we can step in and assist with excerices that follow their orders.
Life changing surgeries
Amputation. Paralysis. Stroke. These are all instances where life is going to be different post-recovery, whether it was from something unexpected like a car accident, or ongoing poor health. Home care can help with daily household tasks as clients adapt to new way of living, as well as provide companionship, medication management and nursing care.
