After Surgery Care

In many cases we don’t have time to prepare for family care needs in the North San Antonio area until that time is forced upon us. Homewatch CareGivers specializes in after surgery care and care after medical, dental or optical procedures, 24 hours per day including transportation to and from the appointment and assistance immediately following up to days or weeks after the procedure. We do not have a minimum number of hours you have to agree to, therefore whether for a short or an extended period each day, we can be there with a trusted caregiver whenever you need someone. We help manage medications an assist in the activities of daily living that are so tough after a procedure when you may be home alone or needing an extra hand.  We want to be your temporary helper when you need a hand to get back on your feet.      

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.
