We do more than just Post Operative Care

Whatever your care needs and wherever your loved one is on their care journey, please contact us and let’s talk. We're here to help.

Post Operative Care

If you’re due to be admitted to hospital for an operation or surgical procedure and are likely to require some degree of post operative care, please get in touch with us. Our expert team of post operative carers work across London to support recently discharged hospital patients with their recovery.

We know how important it is for patients to take it easy, following a stay in hospital. We’re also aware that people’s post operative care needs vary and that there’s no one size fits all approach. We understand that the type of surgery patients have had, their health history and general well-being all play a part in determining the nature and scope of their post operative care.

So, whether you just need someone to get you home from the hospital, or you feel you could benefit from some assistance with household tasks, or if you require longer-term help with pain management and physiotherapy, our carers will step in and offer their support in any way that’s needed, so that you can focus on making a full and speedy recovery.

What to expect with our post operative care service

Hospital to home services

Following an operation, patients who don’t have access to adequate aftercare and support are required to remain within the care of the NHS, even if they have been deemed eligible for discharge. Such ‘bed blocking’ not only costs the NHS but can cost the patient too, with healthy patients contracting illnesses due to delayed discharge. If you live alone and don’t have friends and family nearby that can pick you up from the hospital and get you settled in at home, we can help. Our reliable and experienced carers can help you get from the hospital to the comfort of your own home quickly and safely.

Help with pain management

Post operative pain can last from a few days to several weeks and dealing with it can sap one’s energy and lead to increased levels of anxiety and depression. Add to this, the pressure of keeping on top of everyday tasks and pain management at home can become a real challenge. Our care assistants recognise this and can undertake tasks that you find taxing or uncomfortable, such as shopping, cleaning, meal preparation and even administering medication. With the daily household chores taken care of, you can focus on resting up and relieving your pain.

Support with post operative tasks

Our carers will be on hand to help you complete any post operative care tasks that your surgeon or doctor has assigned to you and support you with any physiotherapy exercises you’ve been asked to do. With your post discharge recommendations covered, you’re more likely to make a swift recovery and avoid any unnecessary return trips to the hospital.

Mobility assistance

Are you keen to get out and about and keep active after your operation, but are worried you might have a fall? Rest assured, if you’re a bit unsteady on your feet, our carers are trained to help you move about your home safely. We can accompany you on walks to the local shops or the park or if you’d prefer to just do some gentle exercises at home, our carers are more than happy to supervise these. Whatever your mobility needs, our carers are on hand to help until your confidence returns and you’re able to move about independently.

Personal care

Your procedure or operation may make personal care tasks more difficult. Mobility issues and increased pain levels can make visiting the toilet, teeth-brushing, bathing and shaving more complicated and harder to carry out without assistance. Our compassionate carers can support you with these tasks, however, you need them to and will do so with discretion and sensitivity.

Reinforcing routines

When you leave hospital, it can sometimes be challenging to try and remember all the new routines you’ve been issued with. Our carers can provide you with regular reminders. So, whether you need to take medication at a certain time, avoid certain foods, or exercise regularly, you can rest assured that we’ll help you stay on top of your doctor’s instructions and expectations

A day in the life with Ana

Headshot of a care assistant

“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."

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

What is post operative care?

Post operative care is care that is provided to a patient following an operation or surgical procedure. It can start in the hospital and continue at home, following a patient’s discharge. The type of post operative care a patient requires will be determined by the patient’s doctor or surgeon.

Why is post operative care important?

Post operative care is key to ensuring a patient recovers from their procedure quickly, fully and without complications such as infection. Post operative care at home, delivered by a specialist care team, enables patients to focus solely on their recovery rather than worrying about having to complete everyday household chores.

What does post operative care involve?

The type of post operative care a patient receives depends entirely on the procedure they’ve had and how well they’ve come through it. Care may simply involve some help with cooking, cleaning and shopping, or it may include assistance with personal care, administering medication or managing a patient’s pain.

How long will it take to receive care following a hospital discharge?

Care can be delivered as soon as a patient is discharged from the hospital. We can undertake an immediate risk assessment and have a carer in place within 24 hours. We can even collect the patient from the hospital and have a meal ready for them as they come through the door.

How do I arrange post operative care?

To arrange post operative care please give us a call at 020 8102 8628. The sooner you can arrange care, the better. We recommend calling us at least two weeks prior to the planned hospital discharge, but if that's not possible we can also arrange last-minute emergency care.
