Did someone you know undergo any surgical procedure recently? Wondering how you can support them in their journey to recovery?

It is common for home nursing caregivers in Singapore to feel alone and stressed out after their loved ones undergo any form of surgical procedure. Administering post surgery care can be daunting for many, especially if they have little or no prior experience.

While some caregivers may be able to request time off during their workday to attend to their loved ones’ needs, many caregivers in Singapore often face difficulties in doing so due to the nature of their job.

If any of the above situations sound familiar to you, read on to find out how we can support you in your caregiving journey.

WHAT IS POST SURGERY CARE?

Post surgery care is the care your loved one ought to receive after a surgical procedure. The type of home nursing care administered is often dependent on the nature of the surgery performed.

The aim of post surgery care is to offer professional pain management and wound care management immediately after surgery.

Traditionally, caregivers in Singapore accompany their loved ones to the hospital or clinic to receive such care, however, in recent years, many caregivers have also learnt of home nursing services where such care can be delivered within the comfort of their home.

HOW CAN I BENEFIT FROM POST SURGERY CARE?

As a patient, your focus should be on recovery. We understand that the hassle involved in arranging for transportation and waiting in line for your turn to be called at the clinic can often introduce unnecessary stress and discomfort. As such, opting for home nursing care services could be a more viable option as it would alleviate any pain or discomfort brought on by travelling, and you can lessen the risk of infection due to bacteria by staying within your abode.

As a home nursing caregiver in Singapore, post surgery care is equally important for you as well. Caring for a loved one who has recently gone through an operation can be a daunting experience. Without the right knowledge or skills, both you and your loved one may feel lost, flustered and overwhelmed.

Post surgery care is important for both patients and their caregivers as medical professionals like home care doctors or nurses can provide caregiver relief and provide patients assurance as they can clarify any doubts.
