After Surgery Home Care
We can ease your loved one's transition from the hospital or rehabilitation facility to home, which can lead to a safer, more comfortable post-surgery recovery.
The time immediately following release from the hospital (also known as the postoperative period) is a critical phase of the recovery process. Studies show a lack of proper care and support after a surgery can lead to slower recuperation. In fact, there is a substantial risk of readmission due to serious complications, such as infection, blood clots, or reopening an incision. This is why it is important to have a thorough postoperative care plan in place before transitioning home.
Family and friends may be eager to help their loved one recovery after a surgery. However, most lack the proper training to provide the necessary postoperative home care. What’s more, caretaking for family members who recently received surgery is both labor-intensive and time-consuming.

Comfort Keepers® caregivers make our clients’ transitions from hospital to home as seamless, safe, and positive as possible. Our caregivers provide the following postoperative care services:
- Support for the care plan to aid in recovery after the surgery
- Assistance with household activities and responsibilities, including meal preparation, light housekeeping, and running errand
- Incidental transportation for postoperative and doctor’s appointments, such as office visits and physical therapy
- Communication with the medical team, as needed
Having one of our caregivers assist with home care responsibilities provides untold peace of mind for both the client and their loved ones.
