What care and help needed after hip replacement surgery
willhen posted:
I am told I need hip replacement surgery. Told need stable housing for 6 months after surgery. Am in need of all the things I would need help with to recover. Also mentioned I may get sent to a rehab place after surgery to make things easier when I return home. Told will need walker, high seat for toilet, and a bath chair. But sure many other things I need to know

Yes that is all true. Anticipate for your maximal needs. It is good to take an OT specialist to do a home assessment for you as well.
