“I don’t need help on a full or part-time basis. I can get around pretty well and take care of myself for the most part. But I am due to have surgery next month, and I’m concerned about my recovery over the course of the 2-3 weeks following the surgery. A
Answer: There are many options available to you for home care after surgery. The beauty of home care is that it has to be flexible in order to meet your changing and improving condition from day to day. Many clients want the security of having someone around the clock for a few days then customize your help to the times in the day you need assistance and how many hours you need your help each day. Many times after surgery a person should not be doing housework such as sweeping, vacuuming, and mopping, plus standing up cooking and cleaning dishes. A person also may be unsteady and for safety reasons need a caregiver to help provide assistance in showering/bathing.
Remember – YOU are always in charge of the type of help you want, the caregiver you want, the times that you want.
