About Post-Surgical Home Care
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 homes. The home is often the best place to recover because it’s where patients feel the most comfortable and get the best rest.
We understand there isn’t always enough time or energy to care for your 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.
