Post-Operative Care at Home

Warm-hearted live-in carers assist in your home so you can focus on getting well sooner after an operation.

Outstanding post operative care at home

If your loved one is in hospital or going in for an operation, you might want to consider how best to help them recover after their surgery. Mumby’s post operative care at home allows your loved one to recover in the familiar and comfortable surroundings of their home whilst receiving tailored support with daily tasks and the specialist healthcare they need.
We care for lots of post-operative patients who have had operations including hip or knee surgery, cataract and other eye surgeries, hernia repair surgery and cancer surgery and treatment.

Post Op Home Care

The type and level of post op home care required will vary by patient and their condition. Your loved one may have limited mobility or sight after their operation. Post operative live in care provides a constant companion to ensure the safety of your loved one when they come home from hospital, reduce their risk of a fall and help them stand and move around.

Patients returning home after an operation can be quite anxious about managing their daily routine and post-operative needs. A Mumby’s post-operative live-in carer can provide them with all the emotional support and care they need during their convalescence and recovery, so they feel secure and comfortable and can get back to a normal level of independence and well-being as soon as possible.

You can arrange care in advance of your loved one’s surgery, so everything is in place when they need it.

Emergency support

We understand that it is sometimes difficult to know when you may need our support as situations can change fast. You also may not get much notice of your loved one’s discharge from hospital. If you need emergency post-operative care (link to emergency care page), please contact us so we can fast track your enquiry.

After an operation, it is normal to feel more tired than usual as your body is putting energy into recovering. Our specialist carers are trained to provide all the necessary health care and support required after surgery.
