Post Operative Care for Seniors in The Greater St Petersburg Area and The Importance of Building a Relationship with A Home Health Agency

By Homewatch CareGivers of St. Pete Beach

Ways A Home Health Agency Can Help Post Operative Clients

Here in St. Pete Beach, Treasure Island, Gulfport, Tierra Verde, Clearwater, and City of St. Petersburg, many of our seniors do not have family available to aid in post operative care. After hospitalization, many patients are discharged to rehabilitation centers for their immediate post-operative care. Some people prefer to recuperate at home with private individualized attention from a Home Health Aide/ CNA.

Many people need help at home for a few hours a day to weeks, which is why a CNA may step in and assist a patient and their family member to help care for them. Individualized care provided during and after a procedure can have a significant impact on healing and the recovery period by preventing falls, eating good nutrition, getting plenty of fluids, aiding in walking, aiding client with prescribed exercises, making sure client is getting adequate rest and medication assistance just to mention a few items a CNA can do. Washington Post recently posted an article that reported that aiding seniors to move post hospitalization speeds up recovery. Dr. Denise DuPree, DAc, AP, owner of Homewatch CareGivers of St. Pete Beach, states in my experience, seniors who have had operations have better and faster recovery when they are discharged into a stress-free environment with support provided by a home health agency that includes a team of professionally trained CNA’s to care for them post operatively or post hospitalization. This stress-free environment can be in their home or in their assisted living facility for one-on-one care. Home health agencies such as Homewatch CareGivers provides staff that are trained not only in caring physically for the senior but also overall wellbeing.
