Post operative care service

Post-Operative and

Hospital Discharge

Post-operative and hospital discharge care is often needed once you are able to return home from hospital. Relatives and friends may not be able to look after you or may not be available. Or it may well be that you may not want them to take on certain tasks such as personal care.

When might post-operative care be needed?

Live-in or visiting care by a registered nurse or skilled carer can support you after a stay in hospital and allow you to recover at home. If you live alone, you may not be able to call on the regular support of a relative or friend. So, we can provide regular visits or 24-hour care.

We visit our patients at home and, if necessary, in hospital to assess your needs and formulate a care programme to suit you.


When might somebody benefit from post-operative care?

When able to go home but need additional assistance from a registered nurse, we are able to take over the duties of a nurse in hospital. Some clients may just need a member of our care team to help you get back on your feet and assist you with tasks such as cooking and companionship whilst you recuperate fully, dependent on your individual needs. Whatever your needs you can be assured that the services of one of our clinically trained registered nurses can carry out procedures such as IV therapies, blood sampling or changing dressings.  Or you may only need personal care, washing and dressing or help with daily tasks and home-cooked meals.

We visit our patients at home and, if necessary, in hospital, to assess your needs and formulate a care programme to suit you.

Does your presence affect the relationship with doctors?

No, we work with many doctors and health professionals that include District Nurses, Physiotherapists and Occupational Therapists to manage rehabilitation programmes. To make life easier for you we can organise home visits for physiotherapists, chiropodists, complimentary therapists, therapeutic services and hairdressers if you wish. We can also advise you on health and safety issues, nutrition, eating plans and exercise regimes.
