Are you looking for Knee and Hip Replacement Home Care In London?

Tiggo Care offers knee and hip replacement home care services to people before and after their procedure.

The weeks and months after knee surgery or a hip operation are crucial to the success of the procedures. Following the operation people are expected to complete regular prescribed exercises to help build strength and maintain flexibility while not over-exerting themselves which risks causing injury. Our care assistants can help you or a loved one with these exercises and with everyday tasks to minimise stress and strain during the recovery process.

What Are The Benefits of Receiving Home Care Following A Knee Or Hip Operation?

More than 200,000 people undergo a hip or knee replacement in the UK each year. The success of these procedures is highly dependent on adherence to rehabilitation routines in the weeks and months following the procedure.

Following a knee replacement most people spend 2 to 5 days in the hospital before they are discharged or 1 to 2 weeks in the hospital for a hip replacement. A person who has recently undergone this type of surgery will likely struggle with daily tasks, such as cooking, washing, dressing and walking. Our professional home care assistants can support you with all of these tasks and reduce your risk of falling. They can also help you to attend follow-up appointments and assist you with your rehabilitation, which might include support with exercises or medications.

A Day In The Life With Ana

“I’ve met so many patients that are happy to see me after they’ve been discharged from the hospital and it’s this that makes my work really rewarding. I’ve heard patients say countless times that if it weren’t for me the doctors wouldn’t have discharged them and that the care I was going to provide gave the doctors confidence that they’d be ok upon returning home."

What Are The Benefits of Receiving Home Care Before A Knee or Hip Operation

Waiting times for knee or hip operations can last up to 18 weeks and many people find their leg muscles get weaker or experience increasing pain while they wait.

Reduced strength and pain can make everyday life more difficult. If you or a loved one are finding tasks, such as shopping or cleaning, more difficult while you wait for a planned procedure don’t wait until after the procedure to organise care. We can provide the extra support immediately and pause care while you’re in the hospital. Organising professional home care will reduce your risk of falls and help prevent delays due to unexpected accidents.

More reasons to choose Tiggo Care

Our Care packages are bespoke

At Tiggo Care we understand how precious your loved one is to you and how unique they are. We also appreciate how overwhelming it can be to research and source the most suitable type of care.

We fundamentally believe that there is no ‘one size fits all’ care package and like to work with you and your loved one to understand your specific requirements. We’ll then create a tailored care package and match your relative with their ideal carer.

We're fully regulated

Unlike some other care providers, we are fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission. This means we are regularly inspected, rated and audited to ensure we are a safe, effective, caring, responsive and well led organisation, committed to delivering the best possible care.

We’re also proud members of the Homecare Association, the U.K’s membership body for home care providers, which holds organisations to a high set of standards and requests them to abide by a strict code of practice

Our carers are fully vetted & trained

At Tiggo Care, all of our carers undergo a rigorous recruitment and induction process. They are fully vetted and background checked, with all references followed up. Our carers undertake their training on the best eLearning system currently available within the UK care market, ensuring they are well placed to deliver the best possible service. Specialist training courses such as moving and handling, medications and basic life support are also completed by our carers face to face, as we feel these courses are more effective when delivered in person.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long do you need a carer after knee or hip surgery?

The duration of care provided will depend on age, mobility limitations and other health conditions. A young person receiving care after knee surgery might only need care for a couple of weeks but an older person undergoing a hip replacement with a condition like osteoporosis might benefit from care for several months.

Can you take care of yourself after knee or hip surgery?

It can be very challenging to live on your own after knee or hip surgery due to reduced mobility caused by swelling, stiffness, and pain. Anyone undergoing knee or hip surgery should organise formal or informal care for a minimum of two weeks following the procedure.

What is needed at home after knee or hip replacement surgery?

Most people use a mobility aid, such as a cane, crutches, or walker following knee or hip replacement surgery. Some people also benefit from a shower sponge with a long handle, sock aids to help put on socks, shoe horns with a long handle, or a reacher/grabber for picking items up.

Can you go up steps after knee or hip surgery?

It won’t be possible to walk up steps normally immediately after knee or hip surgery. In less severe cases, it will be possible to go up steps with the non-operated leg first on the same day as the procedure but people undergoing more serious procedures may struggle with steps for a couple of months.
