There’s no doubt about it, when you go into surgery, you’re not just worried about how the surgery will go, you’re worried about how you’ll feel when you wake up after surgery. If we’re honest, most patients don’t feel the best. They may be in pain, or be worried about how quickly they’ll be able to get back to their normal day-to-day life. If you’re worried about all the above, it’s time you learn about the importance of quality homecare after your surgery in Honolulu.
Help with Daily Tasks
When you have surgery, you don’t think about how you will manage to take care of yourself after all is said and done. Have you thought about how you will cook food if you’ve just had surgery? What about who will take your dog out for a walk? These are all actions a homecare nurse or aid can do for you. From cooking meals to administering medications, our homecare professionals make postoperative care as easy and painless as possible in order for you to heal up as quickly as you can!
Reduces Postoperative Risks and Complications
With all surgeries, there is risk of complications after the surgery is complete. Most complications come from the patient pushing themselves too hard or being too active after surgery. Not letting yourself heal appropriately can put yourself at risk for developing injuries, etc. Instead of putting yourself at risk of not healing quickly, reach out to our homecare nurses at Wilson Care. We are the help you need, when you need it most.
Why is postoperative homecare better than hospital care?
After your surgery, you’ll be moved to the recovery wing of the hospital. Depending on your surgery, you could be there for hours or days. If you get the go-ahead from your surgeon, we highly recommend moving your care to your home. Why? Homecare is more comfortable than being cooped up in a hospital. You can relax at home, and many people tend to heal faster being in the comfort of their own home.
If you choose homecare over a postoperative hospital stay, keep the following in mind:
Don’t overdo things.
Many people who go home have a tendency to rush into daily activities they’re not ready to complete, such as preparing meals, doing laundry or being too active. A homecare nurse is available to help you complete day-to-day tasks so you can rest while being comfortable in your own home.
Get the care you need.
Make sure you’re getting the care you need. Many individuals don’t realize how much help they’ll need after surgery. Prepare appropriately and give our homecare professionals a call. We are the solution you need.
