Joint Replacement

Recovering from joint replacement surgery can make simple tasks intense for several weeks, potentially even months. Your in-home caregivers and expert team help with medication reminders, and other recommended methods that can assist the client being able to manage their pain, encourage your completion of any prescribed physical therapy regimes, and keep your health strong with proper nutrition and hydration after you are discharged from the hospital.

Heart Surgery

It’s invaluable to have reliable home care services you can trust during the recovery period of invasive procedures like major heart surgery, which generally last six to eight weeks. We can help with pain management, bathing, dressing, and running your errands, since driving is prohibited post-surgery.

Eye Surgery

Following eye surgery, your vision may not be reliable or functional for a period of time. Our care team can provide assistance with day-to-day tasks that you may not be able to do during your recovery time, including driving, and keep you from bending or lifting, which can put strain or pressure on your eye.

Pneumonia Prevention

The occurrence of pneumonia after surgery is not very common, however the risk still exists and is often a result of the anesthesia. As soon as the symptoms of pneumonia after surgery become evident, it is important to consult a doctor. Hence, it is important for people to know what the pneumonia symptoms after a surgery are: cough, cold and mild fever, shivering and feeling cold in general, elevated pulse rate and being tired. People are usually advised to practice deep coughing exercises, also known as the cough and breathe technique. Strange as this may sound, coughing can help expand the lungs, which in turn, prevents pneumonia. Our trained caregivers can help by ensuring a clean environment, encouraging good nutrition and hydration for overall health benefits. They are can also encourage clients to adhere to deep breathing exercises that assist in minimizing the risk of post-operative pneumonia.
