El Paso After Surgery Care

Although it is called after surgery care, it is before the surgery in El Paso that you need to make plans for your best healing. The main type of surgery that we find people need home care for is hip surgery. This is usually temporary and our caregivers are there when family cannot be. We can help you and your family members get the proper equipment—such as a walker or an adapted toilet seat—in place in your home before your surgery so that you can come home and rest when you are discharged.

One of our clients was an 88-year old woman who needed our caregiver to pick her up from the hospital and transport her to her home. We adjusted our schedule to the family’s schedule so that the family could be part of the care. Wherever they had a gap, that’s where we came in. This meant that while they were at work, our caregiver was there to make sure medication reminder were given on time. 

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.
