Post-operative care takes place immediately after a surgical procedure. It may last the length of your stay in the hospital as well as once you have been discharged and have gone home. Like most surgeries, there may be potential side effects and complications, in which your doctor will provide comprehensive orders for. While it may be overwhelming to handle recovering on your own, many people opt for professional post-operative care to streamline their recovery.
At Coastal Home Care, our post-operative care is personalized to you or your loved one’s needs. We provide support that’s compassionate, secure, and safe. We have the utmost respect for our clients and protect their privacy and dignity around the clock. Whether it’s medication reminders, fall prevention, meal preparation and feeding, we have the experience to adapt to each clients’ needs.
Below, we discuss the benefits of post-operative care.
1. Faster Recovery
After your operation, there are certain wound healing measures that must take place. For instance, there needs to be sufficient oxygen and nutrition provided. Without these, it may lead to wound complications, such as bacterial infections and more severe cases.
At Coastal Home Care, our post-operative care team works alongside Registered Nurses to provide adequate physical therapy and wound care. Recovery tends to be much faster with the right quality of support and care. U.S. News also offers helpful and additional speedy recovery tips as well.
2. Personalized Companionship
Once you have undergone surgery, the recovery process usually involves recovering in bed and restricted movement. Post-operative care provides the additional home support and companionship you or your loved one needs to complete routine chores and maintain the house.
Post-operative care may vary depending on the client and may consist of assistance with washing the dishes and laundry, or more intensive support such as repositioning, sponge baths, and transportation.
3. Better Comfort
Coastal Home Care prioritizes each client’s comfort. We plan ahead before you or your loved one’s surgery to ensure your doctor’s recovery requirements are followed. By taking this time to prepare, it also allows your family to understand what to expect.
As we have mentioned previously in our Post-Operative Care Guide, when surgery is complete, our post-operative care team can be there to help you or your loved one stay calm and comforted before being discharged. Once you are home, we will help make the recovery process simple.
We help you or your loved one take any prescribed medications on time and ensure adequate rest is obtained. Throughout the recovery process, we also routinely monitor incision sites, prepare meals, and help with any physical activity as necessary.
