10 Ways Midnight Sun Home Care Can Help Post-Surgery
Six Hours of Exceptional Care
Midnight Sun Home Care (MSHC) offers a post-surgery package of six hours of care for $176, meaning for less than $30 an hour people in recovery can focus on healing while we take care of the rest. It’s a good idea to have help in place because many people don’t realize that need it until after surgery.
Starting With a Ride Home
Surgery often requires powerful medications and sedation preventing patients from being able to drive in the hours/days following surgery. MSHC will pick patients up, give them a ride home and even run errands on the way.
Swing by the Pharmacy
When recovery requires medications after surgery, MSHC can drop off/pick up prescriptions, allowing patients to rest and avoid waiting in lengthy pharmacy lines.
Even minor procedures can leave patients feeling worn down and uncomfortable, making daily chores a hassle, if not impossible. MSHC will tackle all the mundane daily tasks like getting the mail, taking out the garbage, sweeping the floor and more, so you don’t have to. Remember, trying to do too much too fast can be bad for your health.
Recovery requires staying healthy and a big part of that is eating right to refuel the body. Working with any doctor recommendations and patient preferences, MSHC caregivers will go to the grocery store and make sure the fridge is stocked (and remove any old food).
In addition to the shopping, MSHC will do meal preparation. Eating right, right after surgery can lead to a speedier recovery.
Laundry and Linens
Post-surgery can be a great time to catch up on Netflix but hours in bed and on the couch get old. A clean set of sheets and a pair of fresh socks can make all the difference. Let MSHC take up the duties of laundry and cleaning the linens.
Catch a Ride
Follow-up appointments can come at the most inconvenient time and asking a friend or calling a cab isn’t convenient either. Take away the hassle and let us drive.
There can be a lot of follow-up appointments and tasks in the days, weeks and months after surgery. The staff at MSHC is prepared to help provide reminders to ensure important follow-ups are on the books.
Peace of Mind
Many Alaskans live thousands of miles away from loved ones meaning at times, it’s not possible for family to become short-term caregivers after surgery. Knowing they are in good hands following surgery can take the stress away from both those recovering and their loved ones far away.
