Post Surgery In-Home Care Services
After having a major surgery or a lengthy hospital stay, it's rare to be safely mobile before receiving notice that you're being discharged back home. With the level of support one receives in a hospital setting, it's easy to assume the transition back home will be smooth. However, once home it can be very difficult, sometimes impossible, to perform basic daily activities without hands on help. This increases your risk of having a fall, mismanaging your medications, and not receiving proper nutrition. These risks can easily send you right back to the hospital and extend your recovery period substantially. Following the proper after care instructions from your Doctor is something Affordable HomeCare can provide you assistance with.
It's important to understand what your needs will be once you get home from the hospital and plan accordingly. It's vital for proper recovery after a surgery to have help if you're unable to safely perform any of the following functions:
- Get in and out of bed
- Independently walk a minimum of 50ft
- Get on and off the toilet
- Cook a warm meal
In most cases your social worker at the hospital will line up or provide you options for Home Health Care Services. A Home Health Care Service provider will stop by your home every so often to check-in on you and ensure you're healing properly. This check-in usually occurs once every few days. However, they're unable to provide the Types of Services We Offer, which focus on keeping you safe and promoting your recovery with personal care. In most situations Home Health Care Service will arrange a Registered Nurse to review your vitals and perform any wound care. As you heal, they may also coordinate Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, and/or Speech Therapy. Although, it's important to have Home Health Care Service after a surgery or hospital stay, it's equally as important to have In-Home Care Services through a company like Affordable Home Care to support the rest of your needs when returning home.
