Nassau County After Surgery Care

It’s hard to know what type of after surgery care you might need in Nassau County, but our caregivers are here for a wide variety of needs that can arise for patients who are healing after a surgery. In New York, it is illegal for someone to come home from a surgery in a taxi. We are able to provide transportation, getting you or a loved one home responsibly and safely, as well as pick up any medications from the pharmacy, prepare a meal and make sure you are comfortable. There are many needs that people do not anticipate before a surgery, but our caregivers can provide oversight and they can alert a doctor if something is not right.
  
We had a 90-year old client who was determined to get his driving privileges back after his heart surgery. Our aide was with him for three months, making him steel cut oats every day, driving him to and from the doctor’s office, and then one day he got clearance from his cardiologist that he could drive again! We were all so happy for him. 

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.
