After-Surgery 24-Hour Care for Adults
The first 24 hours after surgery are critical for the patient. Surgeons usually do not release a post-operative patient until they know that a family member or caregiver is present to take care of their loved one for the first 24 hours after the operation. Post-surgery care services generally involve pick-ups and drop-offs at the surgery site, 24-hour monitoring of the incision, change of bandage, wound care, and assistance with chores like cooking, cleaning, bathing, grooming, and personal care. A-1 Home Care in Covina provides short-term and long-term after-surgery care, depending on your level of needs and type of surgery.
24-Hour Surgery Care at Home in Covina
For first-time surgeries, patients are naturally full of questions about what to do once they arrive home. Are they taking sufficient care of their wounds? Do their family members know what they’re doing? Do they feel confident about the assistance they’re receiving with regard to wound care? What happens if their incision starts bleeding? Is that cause for worry? Having a live-in certified nurse aide around the house alleviates a lot of anxiety, not just for the patient but for the whole family. A-1 Home Care’s certified home health aides and nurse assistants are fully knowledgeable in best practices for wound care. If an untrained friend or family member attempts to care for their loved one’s wounds but inadvertently manages it improperly, it may prolong the recovery period, causing delay in healing.
Professional In-Home Care Shortens Recovery Time
According to research studies, a large percentage of wounds remain unhealed due to ineffective post-operative management. In the long run, it costs you more money and elongates your elderly loved one’s suffering if you try to apply wound care on your own with cursory knowledge of post-surgery care. For 25 years, A-1 Home Care has helped countless families with 24-hour in-home care assistance, which includes meal preparation, light housekeeping, bathing, grooming, personal care, transportation, and companion care.
