Edina After Surgery Care

Some of our clients only require after surgery care for a few days or weeks in Edina. One of our clients was actually from Canada who flew in for a minor cosmetic surgery procedure. We spoke with him about the details by phone prior to the surgery and our RN even did his initial assessment by phone. Our caregiver met him at a hotel near the clinic to drive him to the surgery and then she brought him back afterward. We provided care for about 24 hours and even picked up his prescriptions at a local pharmacy so he didn’t have to worry about managing that. We handled payment using a credit card and spoke periodically with his wife in Canada to keep her up to date on how he was recovering. Having the support of a home care agency and CNA-level post-surgery care gives the family as well as the surgeon peace of mind that the patient’s recovery will get off to a good start.

Most plastic surgeries require a minimum of two days of restricted movement and limited 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.
