After-Surgery Care, also known as Post-Surgery Care, is personalized assistance given to someone who had just gone through an operation. After-surgery care entails pick-up and drop-off services to and from the surgery site, prescription pick-ups, and home care, such as meal preparation, bathing and dressing. Most doctors prescribe 24-hour after-surgery care immediately following the operation, especially if it’s something like eye surgery. Patients are too weak to drive, and a post-surgery caregiver ensures the safety of everyone on the road.
Do I really need a caregiver?
Yes and no. You may be lucky enough to live with family members who are at your disposal when you cannot take care of yourself. But if you do not have that option, then you will need someone to help out around the house, even if it’s just for a few days. It is not uncommon for people to hire a home care provider to receive temporary care until they fully recover. During this critical recovery period, it is important to have an aide to take care of your incision wounds so that you can heal properly, otherwise negligence would defeat the whole purpose of the operation and make things worse.
