Post Operative Care At Home - How Does Live-in Care Help?


Live-in Carer Looking After Elderly Woman who is laying in her bed

If you're recovering from surgery, you might feel mentally drained and physically challenged upon your return from hospital. Rehabilitation following an operation can be too much for a relative or loved one to help with, and require extensive care from a professional. Recovering in the familiar surroundings of your own comfortable home and a routine you're used to can help you feel more at ease - Live-in Carers help to do just that: keep you safe, comfortable, and on the road to recovery at home.


Live-in Carers are trained professionals who will look after you or your relative continuously in their own home. They can support with tasks such as re-dressing wounds, keeping in touch with the doctors and nurses, preventing infection, and administering medication. They will also help with chores around the house, making nutritious home cooked meals, bringing you or your loved one a cup of tea in bed, shopping, looking after pets, helping with dressing/undressing, and so much more. Live-in Carers will also help to keep in touch with your family whether this is through FaceTime or Skype, or host face to face visits.


Live-in Carers also offer emotional support and companionship whilst you recover, which is a very important part of keeping high morale. They can read your your favourite newspapers and books, watch films and TV with you, and be there when you're in the mood for a chat. We match Clients to Carers with similar interests and beliefs so a true bond can be made, and you can enjoy doing things together.

“Juliet offers the kindest, gentlest and most professional care. She looked after me brilliantly in January 2021 when I had just left hospital following the removal by keyhole surgery of a cancerous kidney. She helped me feel safe and secure with her warm and wise caring service. 10/10 marks and the whole Access package as highly commended.”
