Home Health Care in Spokane: How We Can Help After Surgery
Posted: 1/15/2019 11:53 AM by
Bouncing back from an operation can take time, but the post-surgery instructions you receive from your surgeon or nurse often don't prepare you for the reality of recovering at home. For example, while you may know that you'll need to use crutches for a few weeks, it's hard to imagine what it will be like to shower, go grocery shopping, and take care of day-to-day business with limited mobility. That's where a home health care plan from Interim HealthCare of Spokane can make all the difference.
Why Home Health Care is Essential After Surgery
If you have a surgical procedure coming up, it's important to find out as much as you can about what your recovery might look like. You may have a lot of questions, like: How long does it typically take to recover from your procedure? What activities will you be able to do on your own? What kinds of things will you need help with? Whether you seek out this information before contacting a health care provider or your health care team is part of these initial conversations, the more everyone knows about what to expect, the better!
From the medication schedule you need to follow to the amount of exercise you should strive for or limit yourself to, you may be presented with a lot of information before or after surgery. A home health care professional can help make sure you follow all your post-surgery instructions closely, especially if they have the chance to see you and consult with your medical staff at the hospital. With a health care professional on hand, you'll benefit from the guidance and care of someone who knows exactly what you need.
Of course, recovering after surgery doesn't always go exactly as you expect it to. If your recovery takes longer than expected, or complications arise, the health care professionals from our office are ready and able to adapt to any necessary changes in your care needs or timeline.
