Coming home after a surgery or hospital stay is difficult, especially for seniors and adults with disabilities. Patients are normally discharged before they make a full recovery, and they are given discharge instructions to continue to recover at home. It is important for patients returning home to follow their discharge instructions and take their medications as directed while avoiding too much activity that could lead to an injury or a setback. Having someone in the home to help with personal care and ensure that discharge instructions are followed can help aid in the recovery.
Assisting Hands Home Care provides after-surgery care in Boynton Beach, FL to help seniors and adults who are returning home from the hospital after a surgery or illness. Our caregivers will understand the discharge instructions and make sure that you or your loved ones get the care and assistance needed to help make a full recovery and avoid setbacks.

After-Surgery Home Care
Our caregivers can provide you or your loved ones with complete transitional care after being discharged from the hospital. We will understand the discharge instructions and make sure that these instructions are followed and that your loved ones get enough rest to make their recovery. We will also help with personal care and assistance, and we can look for changes in condition and notify you or the doctor when something changes.
We begin our post-surgery care with an evaluation of your loved one’s condition, their discharge instructions, and their personal care needs. We will then create a care plan that incorporates their discharge instructions and accommodates their personal care needs.
We may provide the following within our after-surgery care services:
- Understanding the discharge instructions and communicating them to the patient and their family
- Scheduling follow up appointments
- Non-medical transportation to and from doctor visits and rehab
- Prescription pickups and medication reminders
- Helping with medical equipment delivery if needed
- Ensuring the comfort of your loved ones
- Helping with household tasks like meal preparation and light housekeeping
- Help with errands like grocery shopping and prescription pickups
- Fall prevention
Sometimes illnesses or surgeries can keep people in the hospital for an extended period of time. If you or a loved one must spend a lot of time at the hospital, we can help with our patient sitter and hospital sitter services. Our patient sitters will provide your loved ones with company while at the hospital, help with personal care not provided by nurses and doctors, and act as the patient’s advocate with hospital staff. Our care and assistance will not interfere with the care provided by doctors and nurses. We can also update your family on your loved one’s condition.
We offer patient sitter services hourly, overnight, and 24/7.
