Post-Operative Care Services with ameriCARE in North Virginia

post-operative in-home CARE 

Many recovering patients require the coordinated care of both medically trained nurses and physical and occupational therapy providers along with in-home care specialists to cover their medical, physical, and emotional needs. While friends, family members, and even community volunteers can add to this network of support, having a trained in-home care professional can really help to alleviate stress and ensure effective care.

our post-operative CARE services include:
