Home Support Services (HSS)

Rehabilitation at home is a critical part of our Care Pathway – and is provided by highly experienced post-op professionals. Your in home support actually begins prior to surgery. You’ll be met by your physiotherapist at your home who will establish a pre and post-surgery a personalised exercise routine.

Your physiotherapist will also be able to assess what mobility aids you’ll require, which will also be provided – along with training on how to use them. What’s more, throughout your home recovery, you will have 24-hour phone access to a nurse as part of your care program.

Transport (To and From Hospital)

We will provide for whatever your transport needs are. You may prefer to be dropped off by a family member or friend but assistance is there if you need it.

Depending on your procedure, you’ll leave hospital between 2–4 days after surgery. On discharge, we will arrange for a qualified care escort for you at the hospital and they will assist you to the vehicle. Your escort will be an expert in ensuring you are comfortable entering and exiting the vehicle. You are also most welcome to have someone you know accompany you for the journey home. Your care escort will not leave until you are completely confident and fully settled back into your home.
