If you are looking to arrange hip or knee replacement after care, our friendly care advisors will provide all the information and guidance you need to decide which care option would best meet your needs.
When you have decided that our home care service is right for you, a dedicated care manager will conduct a comprehensive assessment of your needs ahead of you being discharged from hospital.
We then take time to find the perfectly matched care team to provide all the care and support you need to enable to return home as soon as possible. Our professional care teams are chosen carefully to meet an individual’s holistic needs. The carers that provide post op care after hip replacement will be trained to ensure they can meet your care needs and will be overseen by our dedicated Occupational Therapist (OT).
Personalities and interests will be matched as this help the carer and the client form a closer relationship, provide more enjoyment and significantly improve the quality of your life whilst you rehabilitate. We also ensure the chosen live-in care team is introduced to you and your loved one before the care service starts. In the rare situation, the match does not work out, we will happily work with you to find a care team that does.
There are many compelling reasons why our clients choose us for knee replacement aftercare recovery and hip replacement post-operative care:
The Good Care Group is the only live-in care provider in the UK to achieve an ‘Outstanding’ rating by the CQC across all five categories – safe, effective, caring, responsive and well-led. We know this provides families with peace and mind that their loved one is receiving the best possible care.
We provide a fully managed and regulated home care following knee or hip replacement surgery, which offers families reassurance at a time they need it most. Unlike introduction agencies who are not regulated by CQC, all our professional carers are directly employed and managed by us. We ensure they are supervised by an experienced manager and supported by clinical experts – 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Unlike any other live-in home care provider in the UK, we have invested in creating our own market-leading technology to further enhance our service. Through the development of an online community for our clients, their families and our professional carers, we are proactive and responsive to emerging issues, whilst enabling the softer social benefits that technology brings. The secure platform is focused on ensuring our carers are equipped to effectively deliver the high-quality care our clients should expect, whilst delivering improvements in health outcomes. Our families can access important information about the care of their loved one, providing a reassuring window into the care they are receiving.
Our professional carers use a dedicated community through a Chromebook to complete daily care records, update care plans, monitor nutrition and hydration and manage medications proactively with safety features ensuring accurate administration. This allows us to effectively monitor the health outcomes of our client’s care, so we can prevent and respond to incidents and ensure the very highest quality of care is always provided. The online community also allows our professional carers to network, support each other, and share best practice, whilst facilitating a connection which is so important for a remote workforce.
For families who may live some distance away from their loved one, they can access care plans, care records and a calendar of events as and when they wish, offering much-needed peace of mind. We are proud that this community offers families a transparent and immediate insight into our service. The technology also provides families with reassurance that any cash handled by our carers is being managed safely and accurately, whilst enabling them to manage practical arrangements, such as food shopping remotely. They can also connect with our other clients’ families who may well be in a similar situation as themselves, so they can share their care experiences and support one another.
Our professional carers will utilise the technology for their clients’ socialisation and enjoyment – everything from video calls with family members so they feel connected, online shopping to general web browsing.
At The Good Care Group every decision is driven by delivering improved health outcomes for our clients. Through our dedicated and committed approach to providing high quality care to our clients and the use of our market-leading digital technology, we see significant improvements in our clients’ overall health and wellbeing every year.
