After Surgery Care

Having a surgery can be stressful, but if all of the details are planned out in advance, Homewatch CareGivers can take some of the worry off of your plate for after surgery care in North San Diego.  We have many surgery patients call to set up transportation, medication reminders, and help with their daily activities until they are able to take care of themselves again.  Whether you're in La Jolla, Rancho Bernardo or Carlsbad, our caregivers can make sure that you get to and from your procedure on time and safely, and that all of your recovery needs are taken care of. 

We had one client who was in San Diego for work, and while she was here an emergency left her needing an eye surgery.  We were able to help her get back to her hotel room after the procedure, and then provide care for her while she was healing.  We also transported her to and from the follow up appointments, and made sure that all of her prescriptions were picked up and that she was taking them at the correct 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.
