As we get older our bodies change and in senior years they do not recover as quickly as they used to. Older adults have a harder time fighting off colds, they bruise easily and it takes them longer to recover from simple injuries. If your senior loved one is recovering from surgery, it may take them weeks or even months to get back on their feet.
Since they will most likely need extra help during this period, you should consider in-home care services. With help from Visiting Angels Gaithersburg, your loved one can recover safely at home where they will receive assistance from our compassionate and trained caregivers.
Older adults who are recovering after surgery most often need help with even the simplest daily tasks, such as meal preparation, housekeeping or bathing. We understand that every senior has different needs, which is why we offer personalized care plans. Before we start providing care, we will visit your loved one, learn about their care needs and create a personalized care plan based on their situation.
At Visiting Angels Gaithersburg, we offer various home health care services, such as:
After surgery some seniors end up with long-term care needs. If your parent needs more time to recover, we can provide long-term home care services as well. Our caregivers can provide overnight monitoring, companionship and transport when needed.
If you believe your loved one could benefit from our home health care services during their recovery, please contact our Gaithersburg, MD office today.
