Surgery Recovery & Post-Hospitalization Care

Recovery is vital to the success of any surgery, even elective surgery. Did you know that one 1 out of 5 elderly patients is readmitted to the hospital within 30 days of leaving — creating Medicare costs in excess of $17 billion each year? Recovering from a hospital stay takes time, and the older the patient is, the longer it can take them to get back to normal.

During the recovery period, a relative or spouse might not be available to provide support due to their geographical location or their busy work schedule. And if they are, they may not be able to offer the level of care to best help the senior recover more quickly and most importantly, with the best surgical outcome.
