If you or a loved one are recovering from surgery, you can rely on Fayette Home Care and Hospice for the experience and expertise needed to make the difficult transition from hospital to home.

Both before and after surgery, our skilled nursing staff performs in-home assessments to make sure the home is ready when patients return from the hospital. And we help patients get the medical equipment needed to make their homes as safe and accessible as possible.

Nurses from Fayette Home Care and Hospice closely monitor the patient's physical condition, including checking the surgical wound and looking for signs of complications. Our nursing staff is in contact with the patient's physician throughout the entire process.

We also offer nutritional counseling to ensure healthy eating on the road to recovery. And our trained staff of physical therapists provides the rehabilitation services a person recovering from surgery requires. The therapists teach and help patients perform exercises needed to increase strength and endurance, along with daily activities and instruction on how to use assistive devices. They also discuss the important issues of home safety.

Additionally, we offer a variety of private assistance through our private services program. A staff of nurses, home health aides, sitters and housekeepers provide the help that allows people to continue living independently. And we tailor the services to fit with each individual's home-care situation.

Of course, you and your loved one are not alone in the recovery process. Our caregiver support program helps educate caregivers so they become familiar with the signs and symptoms of trouble and know when the doctor should be called.

Count on Fayette Home Care and Hospice to help bridge the gap between hospital and home.
