Hospital to Home Surgical Recovery
Hospital to Home Surgical Recovery.
Whether planned or unexpected, an outpatient surgery or hospitalization means that your body has gone through an experience that requires time to heal and functions that need to be regained. To recover well means that you have followed an optimal recovery plan set forth by your tending medical professional. We at SYNERGY HomeCare can be part of your at home recovery team. We can smooth the transition from operating room to living room or from rehab back to home.
Recovering from an illness can be a full-time endeavor, sometimes requiring around-the-clock care. And while many health professionals will instruct their patients to get “plenty of rest” the reality is that some things still need to get done around the house. Life and the needs of a household don’t always wait for people to fully recover and if you “over do it”, your recovery may take longer than expected.
Why SYNERGY HomeCare?
Home care can be a great prescription for people recovering from an illness as it allows them to concentrate on regaining their health while a caregiver helps around the house keeping the household running efficiently. A caregiver can also help in the recovery process by creating healthy meals, timely medication reminders and setting up follow up health appointments.
Sometimes the hardest part of recovery is understanding and adhering to the discharge or after-care instructions given by the doctor. We can help with that, to help reduce your chances of readmission to the hospital. If you or a loved one is recovering from an illness, you will recover faster when you follow your health care team’s orders.
