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. Postoperative live-in care provides a constant companion when they come home from the hospital. A live-in carer will ensure the safety of your loved one, 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. This will allow them to feel secure and comfortable and able to 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. Learn more about ‘Why recovery at home after surgery is better.

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 the hospital. If you need emergency post-operative care, please contact us so we can fast-track your enquiry.

Services List

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.
