Understanding Post-Surgery Care Options

Understanding Post-Surgery Care Options

Getting back to your best after a major surgery can depend on various factors, from the type of procedure, age, and overall health or underlying health conditions. But another important factor is the type of care you receive and who you surround yourself with. This can make a big impact when it comes to the rehabilitation process, getting back to your best, and living the life you want. There are plenty of options out there for people looking for post-surgery care, from short-term, long-term, and in-home services. While the goal for all of these post-surgery care options is the same, to get you back to feeling your best, the services and care settings offered vary depending on the option. Therefore, knowing what services are offered and the provided care setting is key when choosing the right option for you.

In-Home Care

One deciding factor when choosing post-surgery care options is to analyze and determine the care you will be needing as this will dictate what sort of setting you will be recovering in. For patients whose health permits, rehabilitation services can be done in the comfort of your own home, which will provide you with a sense of normalcy and familiarity. 

The types of rehabilitation services offered for in-home care can range from monitoring health, administering medication, and participating in light exercises that follow the training program set forth by your provider. While all these services are provided by medical professionals, this type of care can only be done a few times a week. This leaves the recovering individual in charge of their own care and rehabilitation the rest of the time. Even though patients could often opt out for care in their own home, the lack of staff support and socialization with fellow patients can sometimes detriment a patient’s motivation.

Short-Term & Long-Term Care

Patients whose health determines that their rehabilitation process cannot happen at home can choose to recover at a short- or long-term care facility. These options provide patients with everyday care, 24 hours a day. Giving patients peace of mind that if any issue were to arise they will be taken care of by the medical staff. 

Services provided for care include health monitoring, medication, and exercise treatments to improve the overall health. This type of care also gives the opportunity to patients to be able to socialize with fellow patients in the facility. This social aspect combined with constant care and monitoring by the medical staff can improve a patient’s mental state, motivating them in their rehabilitation journey.
