After Surgery Care

From rehabilitation to assistance with everyday life, Homewatch CareGivers of South Orange can assist your loved one through custom after surgery care. The care we provide to those rehabilitating after oral maxillofacial surgery, plastic surgery, heart surgery, knee or hip replacement surgery, or laser eye treatment is customized to the individual’s specific needs and wants, the discharge plan received at the hospital, and is always sensitive to the diagnosis and condition of the client.

Trained and compassionate caregivers offer safety, companionship and peace of mind with after surgery care. As care experts, we understand that it takes time to recover from hip replacement surgery, knee replacement surgery, plastic surgery, heart surgery, and dental surgery. Medication errors cause many readmissions after cosmetic, dental, heart or other invasive surgery, so our caregivers can help your loved one to avoid medication errors by reminding them when and how they should take their medicines.

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.
