Assisting Hands Home Care provides after surgery care services for senior citizens and adults who are returning home from surgery in Wheeling, IL. Our caregivers can provide personal care and assistance needed at home after a hospital discharge to help with the recovery.
When a senior citizen or adult is allowed to go back home after a surgery or hospital stay, they are usually not yet in a condition to care for themselves. Those returning home from surgery need to focus on following their discharge instructions from the doctor and getting enough rest to make a full recovery. If you overexert yourself after returning home, you could experience a setback that will put you back in the hospital. This is why home help after surgery is beneficial.
