Do you have a loved one in the hospital or is there a procedure planned in the near future? We understand that you can’t be with your elderly family member every single minute of the day. That is where in-home senior care services can truly help. It can be a rocky transition for a loved one that is coming home from a recent surgery. For your senior loved one, this is going to be a physically and emotionally stressful time. They are going to try and do all of the activities that they were used to doing before their surgery. However, this time after they are released from the hospital is a critical phase of their recovery. Senior Helpers in-home senior care services can offer you respite even while your loved one is still at the hospital to make the transition home as smooth and safe as possible..
Family and friends might be eager to help their senior loved one recovery after surgery. Most of the time, however, they lack the proper training to provide adequate care for their loved one. Not only that, caretaking for a loved one that is recovering from surgery is time-consuming and it can be physically demanding. Having a professional caregiver come in during this critical period will put your mind at ease and help prevent hospital readmissions. Caregivers can provide one-on-one assistance with:
Review the discharge paperwork, assist with post-op recovery instructions, and provide medication reminders, all to aid in your loved one’s recovery.
Assistance with activities of daily life (eating, bathing, dressing, toileting, transferring and continence). These tasks are especially difficult for seniors following surgery.
Transportation to and from office visits and physical therapy.
Caring companionship and conversation.
