Planning your recovery after an operation is important and should be thought about before the surgery takes place. After having any kind of surgery, a patient will be weak and it will take a while to get back to their normal strength. This is why aftercare and treatment options are needed to encourage a gradually recovery and regained independence.
If you want to return home after your surgery then there is the option of home care teams that can come to visit as many times per day or week that is deemed necessary. The home care team can include nurses which can help with medication, physiotherapy and general health issues. There will also be other carers available that can aid in any regular day to day tasks such as cooking, shopping, cleaning and more. Home care teams can be organised through the hospital you are registered with or privately.
