Post Surgical Care
Several factors can affect an individual’s ability to recover following surgery including age, medical stability, and other pre-existing medical conditions which may complicate recovery. Many if not most patients will require some care and rehabilitation following their surgery. Diversicare offers comprehensive nursing and therapy for most conditions with the added benefit of adapting our programs to the tolerance of the individual. Other settings may require that patients tolerate 3 hours of therapy per day, however that is not the case at Diversicare allowing us to advance the therapy program as a person’s tolerance increases. In every case, our goal is to work with the patient on getting back to their preferred location, friends, and the activities they love.
Some surgeries that may benefit from post- surgical care and rehabilitation:
- Orthopedic surgeries including joint replacement
- Cardiac surgeries
- Neurological surgeries
- Oncology surgeries
- Other general surgeries
