Transitional and 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.
Understanding Postoperative Care Services
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. We actively work with our clients and their families to create a postoperative care strategy that fits everyone’s specific needs. We can provide crucial respite care services for family members that still want to be heavily involved. Alternatively, our caregivers can spend significantly more time with the clients to ensure that every need is met. Our extensive years of post-surgery home care experience prepares us to expertly address every question or concern.
Allow us to be the support system your family needs during the decisive recovery period after surgery. Dedicated and dependable, our caregivers are available around the clock, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

It can be a harsh transition to move from a stay in the hospital to living back at home. One minute, you’re receiving attention and care around the clock, and the next, you’re caring for yourself alone. As you recover from an injury, a battle with an illness, or a surgery, it is critical that you follow your doctor’s treatment, care, and recovery plan. Without the proper treatment and care during this period, your recovery can be slowed or you may even need to be rehospitalized.
If you or a loved one is going to be making the transition out of a hospital stay, consider bringing a Comfort Keepers caregiver into your home. We’ll help ease the transition back to normal life and assist with a quick, full recovery.
Our caregivers help promote physical and mental wellness once you return home from the hospital. We’ll provide as much care and support as you need to live well—whether you need help for a couple of hours each day or 24/7. During this transitional care period, we can help with the following:
- Following your doctor’s care plan for a healthy, quick recovery
- Transportation to and from check-ups and doctor appointments
- Communicating with doctors and nurses to ensure proper care
- Household chores, tasks, and activities
