Not All Surgical Recoveries Take Place in the Hospital

Many of today’s medical procedures have become routine outpatient events. After surgery, the patient goes home to recover in the comfort of their own surroundings. Home is often the best place to recover because it’s where people feel the most comfortable and get the best rest.

We understand there is not always enough time or energy to care for a parent or loved one after they undergo surgery. A lack of proper support following surgery can lead to a much slower recovery or a re-admission to the hospital.

That’s where Jewish Family Home Care comes in!

What Is Post-Surgery Transitional Care?

Post-surgical care is rehabilitative care provided immediately following a surgical procedure and throughout the healing process.

This type of care is especially needed if someone suffers from memory loss or has trouble reading fine print.

It can be very difficult to follow the doctor’s instructions for medications, diet requirements, etc. after discharge from the hospital if the person cannot see to read them or fully comprehend the instructions.

Transitional Care FAQs

Do I need to do any advance planning?

The doctor can provide an anticipated length of recovery time.

Be sure to get the aftercare directions from the physician and pick up prescriptions for post-surgery recovery.
