As we age, it becomes more difficult to do the activities that we were once able to do with ease. Many people also experience a decline in health, which often requires that someone be with them constantly. Many families avoid moving their senior loved ones to assisted living facilities because they would rather keep their family together. That’s why Seniors Helping Seniors® Bucks County offers 24-hour care to seniors who need constant care and their families.
Overnight and Sleep Over Care
Some families may hesitate to send an elderly parent or relative to a nursing home, but providing 24/7 care at home is nearly impossible for most families. Overnight care allows seniors to remain comfortable in their own homes as they age but still receive the constant care and attention they require. Care is provided by compassionate local seniors who want to lend a helping hand to their neighbors, and services are tailored to meet the needs of each person. We can stay with your loved one overnight to provide your family members with a much-needed break. Our caregivers can monitor patients with dementia or Alzheimer’s, provide mobility and personal care assistance to adults with disabilities, and provide overnight medication reminders as needed. Round-the-clock home care provides families with peace of mind that their loved one is safe and in good hands.
Does Your Loved One Need 24-hour Home Care?
With 24-hour home care, your loved one will be under the constant care of a qualified caregiver. Many families aren’t sure when to make the switch to round-the-clock care, but there are a few rules of thumb to follow. If he or she lives alone, is unable to drive, or is bedbound, extra help may be needed. Dementia and Alzheimer’s patients should also be continuously monitored, as well as those with a history of falls resulting in hospitalization. Those recovering from an injury or surgery also often benefit from round-the-clock assistance.
When it’s time to provide your senior loved one with overnight or 24-hour care, Seniors Helping Seniors® Bucks County will be there to support you. Contact us now or call 215-675-6402 to take the first step.
