Post-surgery entails serious care and attention, in order to ensure an individual’s fast recovery and healing. They are at risk of serious complications and infections if not given the proper post-surgical care. Here are some post-surgical reminders to remember in order to provide a better care for your loved one:
- Talk to the doctors and nurses on the items needed for your elderly and purchase these in advance
- Make a list of all the medications and its schedule of intake and required dosage
- Clean and prepare your home, at the same time remove any hazards or obstacles to prevent any accidents
- Monitor their health status from time to time
When your senior loved one has undergone major surgery which affects his or her mobility, physical therapy is a viable and effective alternative. Here, physical therapists will help restore or maintain your physical mobility through therapeutic exercises and re-education of the muscles, among others.
In order to fast track their recovery from surgery, you may also opt for occupational therapy where it will help them readjust to a normal life.
