My husband had a hip replacement in February − we paid nothing for his op and then he received home care nurses and physio. This made recovery ever so easy…
I have had multiple operations, the last one being a shoulder replacement. I received physio and a health coach for six months. They have been amazing. I am very happy to belong to CBHS. Thank you for everything.
Rehabilitation after surgery
Major surgical procedures like hip and knee replacements can require extensive rehab after surgery. This is a key part of your recovery. Rehab is equally important after a major event such as stroke, cardiac surgery and other major surgical procedures.
The more strength you can build up in the muscles around your new joint, the more likely you are to gain normal movement and the sooner you can get back to everyday life. Rehab also helps ease pain and swelling and reduces the likelihood of blood clots.
If you’re a suitable candidate, you may be able to have rehabilitation at home. That means you could leave hospital sooner and complete your recovery at home, avoiding all the hassle of hospital appointments, travel and parking.
“The best part was coming home and having physiotherapy at home.”
“I felt like they cared about me and my progress. I’m 100% improved.”
“Caring support from everyone. Excellent. I feel very well supported. Nice to know that someone cares about my health.”
Physio and occupational therapy
Physiotherapists can visit your home as part of your rehabilitation and deliver exercise programs that are targeted to meet your individual needs. They can help you work towards regaining your strength, balance and mobility and help you manage or prevent fatigue, pain, and muscle stiffness.
Occupational therapists can work with you to assess and reduce any risks there might be in your home. They can also organise and deliver any aids you might need to help you return to normal daily living.
Your rehab program may include nursing care to dress wounds, manage medications and administer drugs or infusions. All our nurses are highly skilled professionals.
The length of time a program runs will depend on individual needs. A typical program following joint replacement might last 12 weeks. Other programs might only need to run from four to six weeks.
If you’re self-isolating, tele-health rehab programs can run remotely. These programs also include welfare checks and mental health support.
If you need extra help while you’re recovering from surgery, we can arrange for someone to help with showering, dressing, cleaning and light domestic duties. You’re then free to concentrate on your rehab and recovery.
If you’re the only cook in your household, we can also arrange for meals to be prepared or delivered while you’re not able to do this for yourself.
