After Surgery Care

The doctor says you can’t leave the surgical center without someone to make sure you get home OK.  Who do you call for after care?

Our Sterling, Virginia based home care agency provides best in class after surgery care. We cover Reston Hospital Center, Inova Loudoun Hospital, Stone Springs Hospital and surgical centers throughout the area. We’ll pick you up from your home and wait for you to complete the procedure.  When you are ready to head home, we’ll help you pick up medicines, make sure you have a good meal and a clean environment to recover in. Our support can match your needs:  as little as a few hours on the day of surgery or a few days or extensive care if that’s what’s required.

Homewatch CareGivers of Loudoun can help you get back on your feet. Our in home care services help fill in the gaps between the skilled physical and occupational therapy visits as well as skilled home health nursing visits to the home.

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.
