Recovery & rehabilitation

Epoch Elder Care is an assisted living home. It is not a nursing home or hospice. It provides care and assisted living services for any elderly who want to be independent but need some assistance with their activities of daily living. At Epoch, we follow holistic, person-centered care in a home-like environment, focussing on the person as well as the clinical condition. Epoch Elder Care provides a solid relief management system for post-operative care, rehabilitation, and respite care in a home-like environment.

The post-operative period is crucial for a person to recover and regain the strength to come back to his/her normal routines. The person requires medical management as well as psychological support. If this period is not taken care of, there could be a chance that your loved one can land up in the hospital again.

For any patient, recovery and rehabilitation (especially after an operation) are critical. The major issues faced by families after the surgery are:

  • Managing infection spread and its prevention.
  • Noticing signs of allergy and managing medical side-effects.
  • Access to required medical equipments.
  • Chances of missing post-operative reviews.
  • Unavailability of reliable & trained carer or nurses at home.

These crucial periods needed to be taken care seriously. At our assisted living homes, we take care of the physical, emotional and social needs of the elders who are in the post-operative stage, so that they return to a state of normalcy. At Epoch, we focus on improving the quality of life of elders.

Our team comprises skilled, experienced, and registered nurses, who regularly undergo relevant training. Our nurses are experienced in managing elders in need of recovery & rehabilitation and skilled nursing care across various types of ailments. Our nursing team is present 24x7 at Epoch homes and hence are constantly available to take care of any emergencies or special nursing needs that can arise during the day or night.

Management of bedsores for the elderly

Prasita Nair, Head Of Clinical Operations

Bedsores also called pressure ulcers and decubitus ulcers are injuries to the skin and underlying tissue resulting from prolonged pressure on the skin.
