Even adults who normally live alone may need dedicated in-home care after a surgical procedure. DayBreak Adult Care Services offers post-surgical recovery care throughout Lexington, Columbia and surrounding South Carolina communities. Our professional, experienced staff of caregivers can visit you or your family member at home or in a long-term care facility.
Benefits of After Surgery Home Care
After major surgery, the body needs time to heal and recover. This process can be prolonged for adults who are elderly and/or have chronic health conditions that affect the immune system. With regular visits from one of our caregivers, your family member will have the assistance he or she needs to follow doctor's orders.
When a person lives alone, he or she may feel pressure to be too active too quickly after surgery. This can increase the risk for complications such as infection and slow healing. When our caregiver is present to help with responsibilities such as caring for pets and shopping for food, he/she will be able to rest and recover from the procedure without concerns.
Planning ahead for surgery is easier with the help of our team, too. We can help with medication reminders, shop for nutritious foods and help with other when you or your family member is discharged from the hospital.
When caring for a patient at home after surgery, our team can help the client understand and adhere to post-procedure instructions to promote positive outcomes. When you need physical rehabilitation, your caregiver can help you complete the prescribed exercises and keep up with your healing program.
Our caregivers are trained in working with adults who need companionship and assistance, including individuals with Alzheimer's disease and dementia. They can monitor the person's condition and alert the health care team of any changes that occur, arrange and provide transportation to medical appointments, shop for and prepare meals, offer light housekeeping, assist with activities of daily living such as dressing and grooming and provide social interaction to prevent loneliness and isolation.
We give your family peace of mind when choosing an after surgery home care provider. DayBreak caregivers are affordable, trustworthy and compassionate, striving to create a safe, secure environment for you or a loved one during surgical recovery. We pride ourselves on placing the highest value on client comfort.
Recovering at home tends to produce improved outcomes over recovering in the hospital, including a reduced risk for infection. Ease the transition and let us help navigate the process of restoring health and mobility after having surgery. Even if you have arranged to have a family member care for you at home, that person can take a break thanks to trustworthy respite care from our team.
