Providing After Surgery Home Care in The Blue Ridge Area of Virginia.
Post Surgery Care at Home
Undergoing surgery of any kind requires a recovery period that includes rest and a routine that helps the patient return to normal activity as soon as possible. Most patients need help in the days following surgery, and at least some ongoing assistance until they are fully recovered to resume their normal daily routines.
There are many post-surgery details to handle, like making sure that the patient is comfortable, that surgical dressings are fresh and medications taken, and that the patient’s immediate needs are taken care of. Depending on doctor’s orders and the type of surgery, the patient may be encouraged to get up and move around on schedule so the body’s normal functions are maintained.
Surgical recovery times can differ widely, from a few days to months. Regular day-to-day support after surgery is a key element in reducing recovery time. Providing strong post-surgery support is one of the best ways to assure a faster and better recovery.
Home Help after a Surgery Operation
If you’ve just had a surgical operation, after your surgery you’ll feel tired. You may experience pain and feel fatigued. This is your body trying to heal itself and asking you to rest, so it can put energy into recovery. When you come home from the hospital, it’s important that you and your family realize that you will need extra help for a period of time.
If you’re part of a busy family, a senior or a person living alone, it can be hard for family members or friends to find the time to give you the care you need to make a full and healthy recovery. What time they do have, they may want to spend with you, not distracted with running errands or doing chores. A trained, experienced home caregiver can fill this gap and help you and your family cope by providing extra support following your surgery.

“We met with John Moisa in order to arrange for care for my father. John was a pleasure to work with and talk to. My parents live in a remote area and Acti-Kare was still able to staff us when other companies were not able to or not willing to staff in that location. He came to the house and met with us to explain the services they offered and to help us decide on the necessary care for my father. He was respectful and listened to all our concerns and addressed them thoroughly. We did choose to hire Acti-Kare for 4 hours a day. However, my father had to go into the hospital so the services were not needed at that time. John contacted me several times and seemed to have genuine concern for my dad. After a couple weeks in the hospital we determined that we would need 8 hours a day when dad got out of the hospital. John was able to assure us that he would be able to staff that without any problem. Shortly after that the hospital staff told us that we would need 24 hour a day care when dad would be discharged and again, John was concerned for my father and was happy to help us arrange that care. Sadly, my dad passed away before he could return home. John was understanding and offered his condolences. Although we never had any caregivers at the house, we were pleased with his concern and care for our situation. I would recommend John’s company, Acti-Kare, for senior home assistance and care.”

“My Mother was in a local Independent Living facility in Lynchburg and was approaching 99 years old, I felt that she needed more assistance than an assisted living option could give her. She wanted to stay in her apartment and be with her friends. I happened to visit my Lawyer who is a big advocate for the aging and she recommended Acti-Kare. I contacted John Moisa and within 24 hours he came over to my Mother’s apartment and talked to us about Acti-Kare and what they offered. I decided to have them start immediately. After a few weeks my Mother decided that she no longer needed the sitters and let them go. (A very independent 99 year old). Not agreeing with that move, I called John back and he had the sitters to come back within 24-48 hours. John is very quick to respond and compassionate to you needs. The sitters were good to my Mother. I would highly recommend Acti-Kare.
I live out of town and this gave me a piece of mind.”
