Surgery Recovery

The first 24 hours after surgery is a crucial window of time for the healing process. Virginia Kares Home Care Services can help by providing our highly skilled and knowledgeable certified caregivers 24 hours a day or just one day at a time if needed, in the comfort of your own home for the best recovery possible.

Everything from short-term recovery care, just a week or two, to long-term home recovery care- we can be there!  Virginia Kares Home Care Services can pick you up after a procedure. We can also take you to a procedure, even sit with you for the procedure, and help you get to your follow-up doctors’ appointments too!

 Here are a few examples of recovery care examples to include, but are not limited to:

 Colonoscopy, Oral Surgery, Neurosurgery, Hysterectomy, Herniated Disc, Prostate Surgery, Joint Replacement, Endocrine Surgery, Orthopedic Surgery, Ophthalmic Surgery, Mastectomy and Biopsies, Gall Bladder Removal, Oncology and Chemotherapy, Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery, Cardiovascular Procedure.

As a result of an extended stay at the hospital, the senior may return home to discover there is no food in the home, the home may be in disarray, bills may have collected in the mail, utilities may have been cut off due to lack of payment, and so forth.

 These immediate problems may prompt the senior to attempt to do more than (s)he is physically able. Virginia Kare Home Care Services will be there to help straighten up your home, even make sure you have clean sheets on the bed for a good night’s sleep. We can help you get a bath every day so that you will feel fresh and able to face your recovery with a positive outlook. We can prepare your meals for you and even run to the grocery store so that you have a fresh supply of food. We will be there to remind you to take your medicines, as well as go pick up medicine from the pharmacy and run other errands as well. Many seniors live alone and must deal with the problems of taking care of themselves while they recover; Virginia Kares Home Care Services can be there for you. Let us help!

How can we help after an accident?

Having a caretaker around can be essential to recovery after an accident of any kind. Oftentimes, doctors discharge patients from hospitals with the recommendation that they obtain assisted care at home. A Certified Nursing Assistant or Person Assistant Aide can help ease the transition from accident to recovery. Whether assistance is required around the clock or just a few weeks, for a few hours a day, Virginia Kares Home Care Services CNAs and PCAs can make sure your loved one is comfortable and at ease. Caregivers can be there to ensure that you or your loved one heals as quickly as possible by helping with the basics of life!
