Help someone else recover from heart surgery
Heart surgery is one of the biggest and most serious types of surgery that the human body can go through, and during recovery the patient is likely to struggle to get back to normal as quickly as they might like. The patient will also have to be very careful about the physical activity they do, so as not to overstress the body, so this is where you can be helpful to a loved one who has just undergone surgery. Here are some tips for caring for your loved one as best you can after surgery.
- Understand what they need. You can ask the patient themselves what they feel they need, or how they are feeling, but you may also want to ask their doctors for advice on how best to care for them, particularly if they are groggy or confused at first.
- Prepare their home for them. Clean and sort out their house so that they have a comfortable and clean environment to recover in. Cook meals and separate them into portions that can be easily reheated, and take on their cleaning for some weeks if you can.
- Help them with activity. It is never advised to simply stay completely still after any surgery, as this will slow down how quickly the body recovers. Help the patient to get out of bed and move around the house a little each day.
- Give them rest time. Although you might want them to move about in order to help them to recover, the patient also needs lots of rest and sleep, so make sure you give them time to themselves each day.
