Preparing your home before surgery
Lots of things about your life will have to change for a short time after you have surgery. Your whole life will need to become dedicated to your recovery and bringing you back to normal. One of the things which will need to change the most is how you move about and run your own household.
Not being able to work or move around as freely means that you will need to have certain measures put into place before you even go into surgery to help you to get around and to do things for yourself when there aren’t others there to help you.
- Look into additions for the house. If you are having serious surgery which may mean that you struggle to move around for a while, look into investing in bars for the bath, shower and toilet and additions to the kitchen to help you to move around.
- De-clutter. Your house needs to be as uncluttered as possible to prevent you from falling over anything or struggling to get around with a wheelchair or crutches. Make sure that the pathways in the house are easy to navigate before you go into hospital.
- Move your bedroom downstairs. If you sleep at the top of the house and are going to struggle to move around easily, either move your bedroom to the bottom of the house temporarily, or make sure that you have everything you need on the top floor. Make sure that a bathroom is in easy reach.
- Consider quick fixes. Even if you have the kind of home where everything is home cooked and cleaned from scratch, why not take advantage of microwave meals and kitchen wipes for a short time after your surgery?
