Post-Surgery Care Support At Home
Recovering from surgery? From support with activities of daily living and rehabilitation to nursing care, Homage Care Pros can help your loved ones have a seamless transition home after hospital discharge.Get Care Now
Almost 1 in 5 seniors discharged from hospitals are re-admitted within a month
After being discharged from the hospital, individuals will often still need support with activities of daily living, wound care and pain management. Usually, they’ll also need to make frequent trips to the hospital for rehabilitation therapy and follow-up appointments. For some, such as stroke survivors, long-term care may be required.
Making care arrangements for the transition from hospital to home takes time, and a family member often assumes the role of the primary caregiver. Without proper caregiving knowledge, experience and skills, family caregivers may not be able to deliver the best care to their loved one as much as they’d like to. This can compromise the wellbeing of both the caregiver and the care recipient.
For those who live alone, it can be difficult to cope with post-surgery care at home as well.
What is post-surgery care?
Assist with the activities of daily living (ADLs) – eating, bathing, getting dressed, toileting, transferring, and continence.
Alleviate symptoms and improve bodily functions through prescribed treatment plans.
Accompany and facilitate transport to-and-fro between home and medical appointments, scans and treatment visits.
Monitor and administer nursing procedures from tube feed and suctioning to injections and wound care.

A seamless transition from hospital to home
Having proper care support, a suitable home environment and caregivers equipped with the right skills and knowledge play a key role in post-surgery recovery.
Besides educating ourselves on how to care for our loved ones, we can also consider seeking professional care support to ensure our loved ones get the best care and so we can take time off to ourselves and avoid caregiver burnout.
Whether you need short-term respite or long-term care support, there are various care options available that will suit your care needs.

What our customers say
Right from the start from signing up for an account, to making a booking on the app, to the confirmation of a Care Asst and to the whole visit concluding, its all a seamless and worry free process. Loved this service and would recommend it to anyone who requires the extra pair of hands and legs
Have been using this for a year to help my grandfather who frequently gets aspiration pneumonia and has difficulty leaving the house. The app is so easy to use, and the cherry on top is the wonderful service behind the app. Had some difficulty finding a doctor recently and Hakim called me back personally twice to ensure a doctor was found. Thank you so much, cannot recommend this app more.
Very responsive app, with options to chat with caregiver, review reports and contact support team for assistance.
My mum’s helper was hospitalised suddenly and I needed urgent help to take care of my mum who has advanced dementia. Homage was able able to find caregivers for my mum within a very short notice. The caregivers possessed the skill sets that I had requested and were of great help to me in my time of need. Thank you Homage!
Homage CP render their professional service to my dad who is a dialysis patient. CP assigned to wheel my dad to & fro from Dialysis Center within 300m walking distance. They are capable to load & unload my dad from wheelchair independently. They are friendly too. I'm looking forward to their next visit.
Had a good experience with Homage's teleconsultation. The doctor is qualified, friendly and guided me on examination. She also explained my symptoms to me in detail, which is useful. The report provided has detailed information, and medicine was delivered to me on the same day even though my appointment was in the evening.
Response from Homage is fast. And the physiotherapist assigned is professional in assessing and guiding my mom in her session.
