Pre-Operative Home Setup
Are you considering surgery? Do you have a planned procedure such as a total hip replacement, total knee replacement, or shoulder rotator cuff repair?
After surgery, there is a critical period of repair, rest, and restricted abilities.
With the way your home is currently set up, do you fear that you may need to go to a rehab facility or extended care facility after surgery?
Would you prefer to recover in your comfortable, familiar home?
Make recommendations to your current home to allow you to come home more prepared and confident when discharged from the hospital
Establish an ideal healing station in your home

A focus on areas where you rest and recover, and setting up locations where you sleep and sit
