Post-Surgery Care: Why Recovering at a Surgery Recovery Center is Different Than Recovering at Home
Your post-surgery care directly affects the short and long-term results of your operation. To ensure a successful procedure, it’s important that you’re able to rest and receive proper postoperative care.
Many patients require months to fully heal, and during that recovery period, it can be difficult to perform necessary day-to-day tasks. Additionally, it’s common for patients to need ongoing nursing care and/or physical therapy.
For many people, staying at a dedicated surgery recovery center instead of at home (or the hospital) is the obvious choice for a multitude of reasons. Discovering your options when it comes to rehab after surgery is the first step.
Why Post-Surgery Care at a Retreat is Preferable:
1. Your Environment Is Ready for You
It happens all too often: a patient gets their surgery, only to return to a home that’s difficult or even impossible to manage. Maybe they’re not able to climb the stairs to reach their bedroom. Or, they might have difficulty preparing meals. While home offers familiar comforts, that’s not always a good thing if they’re inaccessible.
Hiring a private duty nurse or booking a wellness suite at a recovery center can help ensure you receive care from a professional who specializes in recovery. That means that you’ll be able to enjoy an environment that allows you to live as normally as possible while your body heals. This normality in post-surgery care can be important to your mental health as you avoid dealing with the frustrations of at-home recovery.
2. Dedicated Assistance Is Always Available
Even if you have the most loving, caring, genuinely happy-to-help family of all time, nobody wants to be forced to rely on others. While there’s nothing wrong with leaning on others during times of need, many patients don’t want to intrude on the lives of their friends and family.
It’s not always possible for friends and family to provide the ongoing assistance required for you to recover safely and comfortably. Post-surgery care involves 24/7, dedicated assistance. When you stay at a surgery recovery center, there are qualified medical professionals readily available who are there specifically to help you, no matter what you need.
3. Life Is Good (or at Least Better)
Post-surgery recovery can be an extremely difficult process. It can also be a surprisingly pleasant one. Of course, how you feel is going to depend largely on what type of procedure you’ve had, but one thing is certain: staying in a 5-star luxury wellness suite can drastically alleviate the stress associated with recovery.
Because rehab after surgery is often a trying time in a person’s life, it’s understandable that they’d want to alleviate some of the stress by staying in a tranquil environment. At Pearl Recovery, we specialize in luxury post-surgery care. We can offer our guests:

4. You Can Enjoy Time Alone or With Loved Ones
During post-surgery care, you’re not always going to feel as sociable as usual. There may be times when you want to take a leisurely nap or get lost in a book. If you live with other people, finding some alone time can be a challenge. When you stay at a surgery recovery center for your post-surgery care, you’re able to interact with people if and when you feel like it. You’ll feel the comfort that comes with staying in a positive environment with compassionate caretakers who are there for you and your improved recovery.
5. You Can Relax
You have a lot to focus on already. You don’t want to be worrying about running out of groceries or booking your next physical therapy appointment. Attempting to continue with your normal routine amid post-surgery care isn’t just stressful, it can be detrimental to your health and cause post-surgical complications that can slow your progress.
When you stay at an all-inclusive facility, you know that all of your needs are taken care of. From restorative treatments like IV therapy to nutritious meals that are prepared for your specific recovery, a post-surgery care center can provide you with all the help you need for a relaxing recovery.
6. Transportation Is Provided
While you’re immobile, it’s not always easy (or even possible) to make it to hospital visits and other necessary appointments. Getting around can be especially difficult if you live in an urban area.
Pearl Recovery Retreat provides discreet transportation to and from your procedure as well as any post-surgery appointments. That’s just another thing you never have to worry about at Pearl Recovery. Our facility is also located close to world-class hospitals such as Cedars Sinai or La Peer Health Center, so you have options and your commute is quick-and-easy.
