After Surgery Care
When a surgery, treatment or procedure is required, getting it scheduled and working through the logistics can get involved and complicated. Day surgery services are fully customizable and completely flexible to make our clients comfortable and provide peace of mind to loved ones who worry from afar. Day surgery services include driving to the surgery, treatment or procedure, taking notes to ensure conversations with medical professionals are captured, companionship and comfort, transportation home, picking up prescriptions and medications, meal preparation, and even personal care services like assistance with bathing or dressing.
During those critical 24 hours after coming home from a procedure, surgery or treatment, there is tremendous comfort and peace of mind knowing that our trained caregivers are present. It is important that caregivers and staff are always discreet and follow guidelines to ensure privacy, but equally important, they are focused on the safety and well-being of the patient. A caring and compassionate staff want the client to have a pleasant experience, even when the day surgery, treatment or procedure leaves them uncomfortable or out of sorts; the training and skills a caregiver receives through Homewatch CareGivers University prepares them to provide safety as well as genuine companionship.

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.

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.

After joint replacement surgery, regular care needs may be intense for several days, even weeks.

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.
