Recovery • Surgery • Stroke • Cancer


Recovery from surgery, a stroke, or cancer treatment is often overwhelming for adults of any age. They may have multiple medications to take and manage at a time when they feel their worst. If they have memory loss, the situation can become more challenging. Your loved one may not be able to figure out instructions or remember what it is the doctor told them to do.


A caregiver can remind them to take prescriptions at the proper time. Our in-home team can help prevent you or your loved one from ending up back in the hospital or taking  longer to get well. We offer the non-medical care that often follows unexpected surgery, a cancer diagnosis, elective surgery, or a stroke. Our caregivers understand how stressful it can be for a patient who is unable to care for themselves. The situation can also cause a great deal of stress on their family members.
