Rehabilitation and recuperation is the period spent recovering from illness or injury, when someone works towards returning to their former health or physical state.
Your doctor or surgeon will advise you on the best way to do this; for illness, this might include certain foods or supplements, an exercise plan, or techniques to relax and relieve physical tension. Recovery after surgery may include any of these things, as well as prescribed pain medication, physical therapy or exercises relevant to the affected area, wound care if necessary, or temporary bed rest.
The advice you will receive will be personalised to your situation, so make sure that you follow it closely.
Rehabilitation and recuperation care is there to support you in any way you need. From assistance with arranging discharge from hospital or attending clinic appointments, to helping with daily tasks such as household cleaning, laundry, personal care, medication administration, meal preparation, or getting out into the community. Home Instead can also provide more specific support around complex health needs such as catheters, enteral tubes, and stoma orbasic wound care. We are even there to support with any rehabilitation programmes that you may have been provided.
Our Care Professionals are fully trained and assessed as competent in your specialist care needs to support you in the best way, often relieving pressure on family caregivers. Evidence suggests effective support helps reduce the number of possible complications and the need for hospital admissions. Having professional support means that the little – and big – things can be taken care of so that you can just focus on getting better.
Receiving care with Home Instead allows you to maintain your independence, routine, and lifestyle. We will work with you to match you with a Care Professional with common interests and hobbies, so that you can connect on a personal level and build a trusting relationship. Home Instead also liaises with you and your clinical team to guarantee the best care is delivered to the highest standard, ensuring a fully bespoke and tailored care plan is provided depending on your needs. With Home Instead, care is carried out when you need it, not when it suits others.

Respite care: Arranging care when you are away
Whether your illness or injury meant you were in hospital or could stay in your own home, it can leave many people feeling drained. It is important that you don’t rush back into doing as much as you did beforehand. Extra help around the house with daily tasks can remove pressure and allow you time to recover.
Many people find that they benefit from care in their own home, allowing them to recover in a familiar environment rather than having to adjust to new surroundings.
Rehabilitation care is often only needed for a short period of time after illness or injury. If your needs change at any time, Home Instead will be there at every stage working with your clinical team to provide as much help as you need.
