Receiving care is a highly personal experience. Here at The Care Advantage, we don’t believe in a ‘one size fits all’ solution when it comes to care. That’s why we provide support that’s tailored to a person’s specific needs.
Our services are flexible, catering to both long-term and short-term care needs. In this post, we provide information on home care across Suffolk, Essex and Greater London and take a look at how home care can help after a replacement surgery.
What home care is all about
Home care is comprehensive care and companionship designed to promote a person’s independence. Our professional carers are here to bring ease to everyday living, whether that be by helping with personal tasks like toileting and dressing, cooking nutritious meals, or making sure the home is tidy.
We pride ourselves on having experienced staff who are truly committed to a person’s physical and mental wellbeing. That’s why the homecare we provide is much more than having an extra pair of hands around the house. Rooted in empathy, respect, and a willingness to go above and beyond, our home care services help a person thrive in the place they love best: home.
Life after replacement surgery
Life doesn’t always go according to plan. If you’ve undergone a knee or hip replacement surgery, it can take a long time to fully recover. In some cases, your recovery can last for weeks or even months.
During the rehabilitation process, you may require extra assistance with things you could normally do independently. But do your changing needs mean you should have no choice but to spend time in and out of hospital wards or temporarily move into a care home? We don’t think so.
Our trusted carers are here to provide support in the comfort of your home. We’re committed to your comfort, ensuring your recovery journey goes as smoothly as possible. Some duties you can expect your carer to perform include:
- assisting with personal care such as washing, dressing, and toileting
- encouraging regular physiotherapy exercises
- ensuring the home is tidy
- shopping for groceries, preparing meals and cleaning up afterwards
- helping with mobility issues
- providing consistent companionship
- support getting to and from appointments
With the dedicated assistance from a carer, you’ll have everything you need to get back on your feet.
Support when you need it
We provide home care support as and when you need it. For example, people who have progressive or chronic health conditions may benefit from long-term care.
On the other hand, short-term care may be better suited to people recovering from surgery, illness, or injury. Short-term care differs from respite care, which is temporary care provided to relieve family caregivers while they take time to recharge their batteries.
As you recover from your hip or knee replacement surgery, we’ll support your recovery until you’re able to resume your usual routine and no longer require assistance. It’s an ideal and flexible solution that truly respects your needs, wishes, and desires.
