Post Operative Home Care
After time in hospital our Home Care team can provide transport to and from hospital for clinic appointments, support after the operation, ensuring medication is taken correctly and assistance getting round the house. Our Home Care staff can help with cooking, cleaning, laundry, shopping and home security checks. Personal care too such as dressing and undressing, washing, baths, showers, personal appearance - ladies make-up and hair styling and for men hair grooming and shaving. Care of hands and feet, dental hygiene and help with the toilet and continence care, in ways that reassure clients and keep them comfortable and confident.
Whether for personalised care or rehabilitation our plans are created to suit particular needs; as those needs change so will the support. They will follow recommendations from hospital medical staff and GP and within those constraints will include everything that is important to you as an individual, your hobbies, activities and interests through to what you would like to eat.
Our Home Care plans are designed to keep people as active as possible for as long as possible and we are careful to maintain consistent routines to improve your independence and choices. Sometimes more intensive periods of support are needed to increase your independence. These programmes are time bound, outcome focused and designed to increase independence as quickly as possible. They have goals and an end date so progress can be checked.
Care plans are person centred and are always discussed and agreed with our clients.
