Post-operative Home Care
Providing quality care right in the comfort of your home
Setting the highest standard of home care giving in Georgia
Postoperative care is the care you receive after a medical surgery has been done. The scope of our postoperative recovery care required depends on the patient’s pre-surgical health status, type of surgery, and whether the surgery was performed in a day-surgery setting or in the hospital. Our postoperative care often includes pain management and wound care. Postoperative care starts immediately after surgery.
It can be stressful when you or your loved one are/is admitted to the hospital. They are most vulnerable at home without needed attention. That’s why planning ahead—for when you or your loved one returns home from the hospital—is such a crucial step. In fact, research shows that the right postoperative or hospital-to-home care can reduce the chances of complications and do wonders for supporting your recovery process.
