Postoperative Care and Rehabilitation

Our trained health care team provides the highest quality post operative nursing care performing the following procedures:

• measurement and monitoring of vital signs
• prevention of postoperative complications
• surgical dressing change under sterile conditions
• stitches removal
• wound assessment under a doctor's supervision
• assistance with activities of daily living
• pain relief

We  arrange follow up doctors' visits and escort our residents to doctors' offices.

An important factor of fast postoperative recovery is a  well-balanced diet. The diet is adjusted to the health condition of the resident.
The rehabilitation program is adjusted to the health condition of the particular resident and his/her diagnosis. The type of physical therapy is determined by a specialist, and carried out by our medical staff under the supervision of a physical therapist. Rehabilitation is conducted through individual and group exercises, mobilization (exercise walk and functional activities of daily living), breathing exercises, medical massage, and manual lymph drainage.

The purpose of postoperative rehabilitation is regaining the range of motion of joints affected,  and regaining the muscle strength of muscles affected. Our goal is to return our residents at the level of functioning before the surgery as soon as possible. We strive to provide intense rehabilitation in order to achieve a quick return to daily life activities.



News and announcements


We would like to thank you personally,  as well as all  of the staff,  once again, for the great care through  all of the  years that our mother, Zdenka “Štefanija“ Banjšak, and our aunt, Božena Mioković, received  in your facility.
During their prolonged stay in your facility, we witnessed the compassion and care they have received.  We always felt comfortable knowing that they were happy and safe, as well as that all of their needs have been met, particularly  on the days when we were out of town.
Special thanks to all nurses and caregivers who showed great care and compassion in the final days of our mother's life when her health was worsening.
We would like to thank all of you for your sincere condolences.
With respect and best regards to all of you,
