Post-operative care & Convalescent care

Recovery from medical procedures, surgery, or illness should be as swift and comfortable as possible. Our experienced staff can assist by providing the highest quality care throughout the recovery period.

Convalescent care

After suffering from a serious illness or injury, it takes time before the body regains full strength and is ready to face the demands of daily life. At this time it is particularly important that appropriate support is available. Our nurses can provide specialist medical help whilst ensuring that general support for everyday tasks is also provided.

Post-operative care

Post-operative care can involve a higher-level of care as some operations can put significant stress on the body, especially in the case of elderly patients. It may also be more likely that support is required with mobility. Our staff are experienced in caring for clients recovering from a wide range of operations, for example:

Cardiothoracic surgery e.g. heart bypass Otolaryngology or Ear Nose Throat (ENT)
Vascular surgery e.g. Varicose veins Gynaecology e.g. Infections, Infertility, Cancer
Colorectal surgery e.g. Hemorrhoids Orthopaedic surgery e.g. Hip replacement
Transplant surgery e.g. Kidney, Liver Neurosurgery e.g. Spine, Endoscopic
Breast surgery e.g. Mastectomy Podiatric surgery e.g. in Diabetes
Skin surgery e.g. Cosmetic procedures Urology e.g. bladder stones
