From Hospital To Home
Upendo Home Care provides compassionate one-on-one care and attention to help minimize post-op discomfort, recognize possible complications and reduce stress on you and your loved ones.
Why should you choose a professional caregiver to help while you recover?
Many patients get a professional caregiver to care for themselves during the initial days of post-op because their physical condition can often prevent them from performing normal activities.
Post-Op Recovery and Rehab Care
Your doctor may also require you to have someone with you during the initial phase of your recovery, as they know that no energy should be spent on activities that could interfere with recovery. In addition, you may feel disoriented, dazed and “out of it” due to the anesthesia and medications (such as painkillers) that may be administered. As a result, your coordination may be limited and you may have trouble standing, walking, focusing on normal tasks, perhaps even worsening post-operative symptoms such as swelling and bruising.
For these reasons, having a professional caregiver, who can assist you in performing all of your necessary daily activities, can be a great benefit while you are healing. Imagine recovering better and faster with the peace of mind of knowing you are safe in the comfort of home.
You are scheduled for surgery and you don’t know how you will manage.
- What will you do after the surgery?
- Who will take you home?
- Who will be there for you during your recovery?
- Who will help you around the house as surgery can leave you feeling low on energy or possibly limit your mobility?
When it comes to surgery, planning ahead can ensure a safe and comfortable recovery. We will provide a highly-skilled professional and compassionate caregiver to care for you in your home or wherever your recovery takes place. Our caregivers can even stay with you overnight if necessary.
