In-Home Post-Surgery Recovery Care for Seniors in Richmond, VA and Surrounding Areas

Comfort care at home from Visiting Angels helps seniors throughout the Greater Richmond, VA area with recovery after surgery

Your senior loved one may very well need some sort of orthopedic surgery as they advance in age. Usually the routine is to send seniors to a rehabilitation center after surgery in order for them to recover, but this often interferes with their will for an independent life.

It’s more common, however, for elderly patients to be discharged directly home after most joint surgeries. According to one study from the Rothman Institute at the Thomas Jefferson University Medical School in Philadelphia, around 90 percent of elderly patients are discharged directly home. And while the time at home gives them a chance to recover at their own pace and comfort, it is still very likely that they will require some form of comfort care to be able to fully recover.

Visiting Angels has helped countless seniors throughout the greater Richmond, VA area recover from surgeries with professional non-medical home care services administered by our caregivers. The services we provide helps seniors live comfortable at home while recovering by helping with tasks they are unable to do physically or emotionally.
