If you have a general anaesthetic for day procedures such as oral surgery, cosmetic surgery, colonoscopies, etc., you are considered to be legally impaired for 24 hours. Normally the facility will not start your procedure unless you have a responsible adult present that must stay at the facility throughout the procedure.
Serenity Home Care Day Surgery Care service provides caregivers to pick you up, drive you to the facility, remain with you throughout the procedure, drive you home and care for you during the recovery. The care period is tailored to your needs. Overnight care is available. A range of services is available including:
- Medication reminders
- Meal preparation
- Assistance with dressing and bathing
