It can be overwhelming for family caregivers and loved ones assisting seniors in thinking about all the things that must be done when preparing for a return from surgery.
The first thing to remember is that support and assistance are always available from services like Promyse Home Care.
Having professional help to address questions and concerns and figure out all the logistics of care and support can help lighten some of the load and make things feel a little more manageable.
Whether it’s after major surgery, following a motor vehicle accident or illness, or a minor procedure, recovery in a comfortable and familiar environment can make a big difference.
Without an effective plan in place when discharged to return home, it can bring on wonderful and comforting thoughts for our senior loved ones but can also be mixed with fear and anxiety.
When the family is the primary caregiver, it can be extremely helpful to have assistance arranging everything that is required to keep up proper care when arriving back home.
Promyse Home caregivers are available for assistance every step of the way to make sure all your bases are covered, and the home is well prepared for the reception.
When it comes to seniors’ health, there can be a lot of ups and downs in the recovery process after surgery.
Having a conversation with healthcare professionals before being released helps provide a better understanding of what to anticipate in the days and weeks to follow. Having a base understanding of what should and should not be a normal part of the process can help with healing and addressing problems immediately should any issues arise.
Here are some of the things Promyse Home caregivers offer:
- Nurse case management service
- Home support services
- Medication management

Returning to the safety and comfort of home is often a great source of comfort for seniors following surgery and time spent in the hospital. The transition itself can be stressful, but a bit of planning and preparation can make all the difference in setting seniors up for a successful and comfortable recovery.
