Finding Assisted Living Care for Your Loved One After Surgery
Anyone recovering from surgery needs a little help. When that person is elderly, the amount of help they need, and for how long, can increase dramatically. The goal of any recovery is of course to get the patient back to how they felt before the surgery, or even better in some cases. After surgery and discharge from the hospital, the biggest concerns affecting full recovery include:
- Proper wound care to decrease the risk of infection.
- Adherence to medication schedules.
- Activity levels as recommended by the medical team.
- Travel arrangement for follow-up appointment.
- Proper diet and exercise to promote healing.
- Adequate mobility function to reduce risk of falls or other complications.
Care is often needed to help an elderly patient recover from surgery safely and completely. Assisted living facilities in Richardson may be what’s needed.
