Serving the Community
As a caregiver, whether you are a family member, friend or home health care staff, you play an important role during the recovery period to help the person you are caring for return to their daily routine following their TAVR procedure. Recovery is different for each person. It is hard to say how much help and for how long they may need it. You are likely to provide physical and emotional support in helping them to recover and return to a daily routine. Talk openly with them about their needs during this time. Some things you may help with include: managing medications, preparing meals, housework, running errands, driving, and attending follow-up visits.
It can be helpful to attend follow-up visits along with the person you are caring for. Use the following list to make the most of these visits.
Being a caregiver is not easy. Just as you are supporting the person you are caring for, you may also need some encouragement along the way. You have taken on a lot of responsibility and connecting with other caregivers in similar situations can be a big help. Remember, you are not alone; take advantage of the following resources available to you.
