Post-Surgery & Rehab
Post-surgery and rehabilitating from an injury or medical issue can be difficult for seniors who are unable to take care of themselves. For many, the best solution is in home care where a professional health care provider can assist the person with recovery in a safe and comfortable environment.
In-home care offers a variety of benefits for those recovering from surgery, such as:
- Access to skilled nursing and medical personnel, who can provide specialized care tailored to the individual’s needs
• Assistance with activities of daily living including eating, bathing, dressing, and more
• Companionship and emotional support during the recovery period
• Promotion of independence by teaching adaptive techniques that allow seniors to do as much as possible on their own.
Disabled Adults Care
As seniors age and become more vulnerable, taking care of them requires more specialized attention. For those who are disabled, in-home care can provide much-needed support and allow them to remain in their homes longer.
In-home care provides a variety of services that may not be available in other settings, including:
- Assistance with activities of daily living such as eating, bathing, dressing, ambulating, etc.
• Help with medication, pain management, and other medical needs
• Coordination of therapies like physical therapy and occupational therapy or speech therapy that can help maintain mobility and independence
• Transportation to appointments or errands on an as-needed basis
• Companionship to prevent loneliness and depression due to isolation.
When looking for an in-home care provider for a disabled adult, it’s important to select one with the requisite skills for the role. Look for professionals with experience caring for people with disabilities and knowledge about adaptive equipment or strategies that can help improve quality of life. Additionally, it’s important that they have strong communication skills so they can collaborate effectively with the patient’s doctor or other health care providers, if necessary. They should also be comfortable assisting with medications if needed and maintaining a safe environment.
