After Surgery Care

Homewatch CareGivers of San Fernando provides exceptional after care services to help your loved one recover from the comfort of home. After your surgery in the San Fernando Valley, we can assist you with both simple and complex recoveries.  Having someone assist you for the first week following a medical procedure has been shown to reduce hospital readmissions. For some procedures, you have trouble lifting your arms, lifting any weight, or you may only be comfortable while lying down and you might need after surgery care. We can be your arms and legs to keep you going.  We’ll help you to follow your doctor’s orders.  We can remind you to take medications – and go to pick them up if needed. We’ll prepare healthy meals and make sure you take in enough fluids.  We can assist you with exercises and stand by you when you walk so you don’t fall. We can even drive you to your follow up doctor’s appointment. You may want to have someone stay for 24 hours the first few days, then only a few hours a day after that. You’ll have peace of mind from knowing you’re doing everything possible to ensure a safe and speedy recovery.

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.
