What is After Surgery Home Care?

Recover at Home with Post-Operative Home Care

After surgery, or a hospitalization for any reason, it is important that you receive help at home. Once you’ve been discharged from the hospital, the risk of falling, mismanaging medications and missing pain medications increases. Suburban Home Care provides post-hospitalization care services.  You can be confident that our caregivers are there to help you or your loved one recover from surgery or illness safely and successfully.

Planning for Home Care After Surgery

If you are having an elective surgery, like a knee replacement, hip replacement, or surgery that is scheduled in advance, talk to us prior to surgery.

We will make sure that a caregiver is ready and available to welcome you home when you arrive, help you with your immediate needs, and make the process a safe and comfortable transition to home.

We know the right questions to ask your discharge planner, nurse or surgical coordinator, so we can create a plan that meets all your needs. We are here for you through every step of “return to home” process. We strive to provide excellent care during your recovery.

What to Expect When You Come Home from a Surgery or Illness

When you come home from the hospital, you might be tired. Hospitalizations can be exhausting. If you are feeling pain, this is also tiring and can cause fatigue. When you have help from Suburban Home Care, all your energy can be saved for healing and recovery. It is important that when you come home from the hospital, you and your family are aware of the extra help you might need.

This is the perfect time to bring in a caregiver from Suburban Home Care who can free family up to be a support system.

Does Medicare Cover Post-Operative Companion Care?

  • Medicare covers inpatient hospital care and some of the doctors’ fees and other medical items for people with Alzheimer’s or dementia who are age 65 or older. Medicare Part D also covers many prescription drugs.
  • Medicare will pay for up to 100 days of skilled nursing home care under limited circumstances. However, custodial long-term nursing home care is not covered.
  • Medicare will pay for hospice care delivered in the home, a nursing facility or an inpatient hospice facility for people with dementia who are determined by a doctor to be near the end of life.
  • Medicare will not cover the cost of non-medical home care (long-term care) in the home. Medicare was designed to cover short-term illnesses and rehabilitation time.
  • Check with your insurance provider. In 2018, some plans started including short-term companion care post hospitalization.
