DO YOU OR A LOVED ONE NEED POSTOPERATIVE CARE?

In hospitals today, patients are discharged as soon as possible. ProMedCare can provide postoperative or respite care in the patient’s own home where recovery is often hastened by being in a familiar environment. We work very successfully with a multi-disciplinary team who gets called in should the care situation require medical intervention or supervision.

 

What Is Postoperative Care?

Postoperative care refers to the care you receive following a surgical procedure. This may include pain management and wound care. The type of postoperative care you require depends on the type of surgery you have.

Postoperative care begins immediately after surgery, for the duration of your hospital stay, and may continue after your discharge from the hospital. Part of postoperative care is awareness of the potential side effects and complications of your procedure.

Ask your doctor about postoperative care prior to your procedure so you can prepare as much as possible. Of course, those instructions may be revised based on the details of your surgery.

 

WHICH PERSONALITY TRAITS, QUALITIES AND QUALIFICATION SHOULD A CARER HAVE?

Personality traits and Qualities of a good carer

Caregivers need to have a genuine concern for others. Those who need support come from all different backgrounds, and have a range of conditions that make everyday living a challenge. It follows that caregivers must treat all people who use their services equally and with genuine sensitivity – and come to the job without prejudices, or pre-conceptions.

To do their work properly, carers must be able to listen to and empower the person receiving their support. The aim is not to take over but to encourage and support a person in their daily living, so they are able to choose what help they have and how it is carried out, and maintain or increase their independence. Good communication skills are vital in order to have a good carer-patient-relationship.

Caregivers should be conscientious and dependable, arriving punctually and carrying out their tasks to the best of their ability.
