Annapolis After Surgery Care

Annapolis home care includes after surgery care. Typically, our after care clients include outpatient and elective surgeries where the client will need help with transportation and assistance as the anesthesia wears off.  Other times there are more complicated cases where care services may need to be provided for an extended period of time; sometimes staying with the client for the first 24 hours or longer.  We are available to provide this and any type of care, adjusting accordingly to our clients needs and requests. 

Many of our after care clients require services that must be customized to the type of procedure undergone.  We’ve had many cosmetic surgery clients where they may not be able to sit normally or are unable to communicate after the procedures.  Our trained staff is experienced in this type of situation and is aware of the variables that can occur.  We will help get their prescriptions, assist with dressing, prepare them a meal and make sure they make it safely into their homes and have all that they need. 

Most plastic surgeries require a minimum of two days of restricted movement and limiting lifting, making this a critical time to have extra support around the house. Adhering to the surgeon’s recovery plan is critical to the reduction of scarring related to a plastic surgery procedure. Many clients prefer to recover in complete privacy, making daily errands and outings all but impossible without the assistance of professional caregivers. We can respect your privacy after a cosmetic surgery procedure while helping you recuperate.
Laser eye surgery and other vision procedures can make it difficult to live independently for a few hours or even days. Homewatch CareGivers understands these setbacks and is here with transportation services, meal preparation, and other forms of assistance for those who are currently struggling to see well.
Oral and maxillofacial surgery can briefly limit independence and therefore it is advisable to plan for some support in the hours or days after a procedure. Caregivers can assist with planning and preparing modified diets and medication reminders to facilitate optimal healing. Caregiver training prepares our employees to provide protective oversight and assistance to the client's after surgery care needs.
After joint replacement surgery, regular care needs may be intense for several days, even weeks. In home caregivers can be there to fill in the gaps while you recover with flexible shifts and compassionate care. Keeping up with medications, encouraging completion of prescribed physical therapy regimes and keeping overall health strong through proper nutrition and hydration are primary aspects of the hospital discharge plan after a hip or knee replacement surgery.
Reliable home care services you can trust are not only valuable during your hospital discharge, but also during the 6-8 week recovery interval following invasive surgery, such as major heart surgery. Pain management will be a full-time focus, some assistance with bathing and dressing is typically required and driving is prohibited, as are running your own errands.
