Post-Surgery Recovery Care at Home for Seniors in East Bernard, TX and Surrounding Areas

With care at home from Visiting Angels, we help seniors throughout East Bernard, Wharton, Katy, Fulshear and El Campo, TX safely recover home following a surgical procedure

Your loved one may need hip or knee replacement surgery as they get older. Typically, older adults go to a rehabilitation center after being discharged from the hospital in order to regain their physical strength. However, this can interfere with your loved one’s desire for independence.

It’s actually more common for seniors to return directly home following joint replacement surgery. About 90 percent of patients are discharged directly home. While recovering at home can allow your loved one to maintain their independence and follow their own schedule, they’ll still need some additional support around the house to make sure they’re happy, healthy, safe and comfortable.

Visiting Angels has helped many seniors throughout East Bernard, El Campo, Wharton, Katy, Fulshear and surrounding Texas communities recover from surgery with professional care at home. Our essential personal home care services not only help seniors with tasks that are difficult for them to do themselves while recovering, but they can also help your loved one stay safe as they recover from joint replacement surgery.
