Ready – Set – Go Home

Every day, people undergo surgery – both inpatient and outpatient – for countless reasons. Maybe it was the result of an acute health crisis, accident, illness, or medical condition. Maybe it was the result of a preventative health plan or cosmetic procedure.

Regardless of the reason, however, the days following any surgical procedure all share one thing in common: recovery.

As part of your recovery, you or your loved one may worry about being alone. But family caregivers, whether down the street or across the country, may have obligations that prevent them from physically being with their loved ones after surgery.

But most operations require some degree of assistance, especially those affecting mobility, such as a hip replacement, and a reliable caretaker can make recovery faster, easier and safer.

At Visiting Angels St. Petersburg / Largo, we understand that surgery and hospitalization can be overwhelming and that getting home as quickly as possible is a priority. Further, we understand that no one wants to be alone when they are recovering so we assist our clients in receiving quality care, right at home, from a compassionate caregiver trained specifically in post-op care.

This care, in turn, gives families peace of mind knowing their loved one is being well cared for – even when they are not able to personally be there.

What Is Ready-Set-Go Home Post-Operative Care?

Post-operative care is recommended for a patient who is recovering from surgery. Unique to each patient depending on the type of surgery they had and their general health, the goal of post-operative care is to avoid complications and promote healing and recovery following surgery. Further, such care can help prevent rehospitalization due to falls or inadequate hydration and nutrition.

As such, your referred caregivers can help with the daily tasks associated with essential personal post-op care up to 24 hours a day. We create a custom care plan to meet our clients’ individual needs, working with you or your family to make sure that a compassionate and skilled caregiver will be present to provide post-operative care at home or at a nursing or rehab facility.
