After Surgery Care in St. Louis

At Homewatch CareGivers of St. Louis, we provide aftercare for our clients who have been discharged from the hospital and need assistance. This service, after surgery care, can help them get home safely when they are sedated from surgery, especially if they have no family or friends available to assist them. Our aftercare transportation to and from follow-up appointments helps in ways that taxi services may not, such as picking up prescription medications. The client can choose to be driven in his car if he is more comfortable that way and wishes to not be billed for mileage, or he can ride in the caregiver's car if that is more convenient. Our aftercare services can also be packaged with companion or personal care, which includes light housekeeping and meal prep.

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.
