After a surgical procedure, it’s important to do everything your doctor specifies to ensure a quick and painless recovery. Whether you’ve had a cosmetic surgery, injury-related surgery, or major surgery for a serious medical condition, it’s important that the incision area is well-taken care of.
Dermatology Associates of Western Connecticut, PC offers some very helpful advice for After Surgery Care, especially in what not to do. For example, Neosporin is an ointment most commonly used to treat small scrapes and cuts, but it’s not good for using on surgery incisions because it may cause itching and redness. Also, aspirin and ibuprofen is not recommended for relieving pain because they may increase bleeding.
At A-1 Home Care, we have caregivers, nurse aides, and mother’s helpers who have experience providing in-home care for those who need After Surgery assistance on a live-in basis or hourly part-time basis. Our caregivers can perform tasks that you usually do around the home while you recover, in addition to providing you with personal care in the treatment of your incision, assistance bathing or showering, and moving around.
Our non-medical caregiver placement agency has been in business since 1991, has Shield Accreditation, and an A+ Rating from the Better Business Bureau. Many local hospitals such as the Methodist Hospital of Southern California frequently refer their patients to us.
