Post-Operative Home Care Services
POST-Hospital CARE IS KEY TO A SUCCESSFUL RECOVERY
Planning for post-hospital care in your home is best started before you go into hospital but if this is not possible, then a meeting should be arranged as soon as possible after your admission. Once you are ready to be discharged, there is usually a period of recovery and most patients will need help for days or weeks after they return home. This is where Northside Home Care Services comes in.
We will assign a dedicated health care assistant and other necessary staff to ensure you are comfortable, your medication is taken at the right time, and that your immediate needs are cared for properly. We will follow the care plan given by the hospital and work closely with our primary care colleagues to assist you with exercises and other recommended treatments.
WHAT TO EXPECT FROM POST-hospital CARE
When you come home from the hospital, you might be in some pain, feel generally tired and very fatigued. This is very common and should not alarm you. It is simply your body’s way of healing and helps you to rest. You might have family or well-meaning relatives who want to help, but their busy schedules can make that difficult or short-lived. This is the perfect time to bring in a qualified home health worker who can free family up to just be a support system.
