Caretaker with a Helping Hand

Assistance Before and After Surgery

Preparing for an operation can be physically, mentally and emotionally taxing for individuals and their families. However, having a qualified, trusted caregiver by your side can ease your mind and ensure a healthy, successful transition back to your life at home. A skilled caregiver will develop a personalized care plan suited to your older adult’s care needs and situation so that you feel confident and prepared for their surgery.

At Corewood Care, our post-op caregivers aim to make the hospital-to-home transition as safe and convenient as possible. We address the potential in-home challenges older adults might face after surgery so they can heal gracefully in a familiar, comfortable environment. Whether you require help preparing the home for a safe arrival, assistance with healthy meal preparation or other tasks, we can help.

What Is Assistance Before Surgery?

The period leading up to surgery can be stressful. Between setting up appointments and adjusting your daily routine and home to make the healing process easier, there is much to prepare for and consider.

Having a compassionate team of caregivers by your side can make everything easier. Our team offers guidance and helps clients make informed care and lifestyle decisions. We look ahead and provide long-term planning to make managing conditions easier.

We want our clients to thrive and live gracefully, so we tailor our pre- and post-op home care services to each individual. Because we understand caregiving services involve a team effort, we communicate with relatives and friends to coordinate care before the procedure.

What Is Assistance After Surgery?

Following surgery, our clients can focus on healing while a post-op home caregiver cares for them. No matter the type of surgical procedure it is, we give clients specific instructions to minimize pain and prevent infection so they may heal quickly.

With after-surgery care, our caregivers provide transitional care and assistance ranging from wound care to medication management. Clients will receive the support they need to return to their daily tasks and routines.

To ensure the highest quality post-operative care, we rely on state-of-the-art technology. With alerts and secure GPS location capabilities, our clients and their families can feel confident around the clock. We’ll record their physical, mental and emotional well-being during recovery for your peace of mind.

Why Is Post-Op Home Care Important?

Post-operative care is vital for aging adults, as the risk for falls, medication mismanagement, and confusion or delirium are at an all-time high post-surgery. According to the American Geriatrics Society, delirium is the most common post-operative complication in adults of advanced age. These potential issues could lead to long-term health problems like functional decline if left unaddressed.

At Corewood Care, we’ve designed our post-op care services to meet the care needs of aging adults undergoing a procedure, surgery or other treatment. From medication management to transportation services to follow-up doctor appointments, our multidisciplinary care team anticipates an older adult’s care needs to deliver client-centered, personalized home return care.
