Around-the-clock care gives you and your family peace of mind that your senior loved one will be safe and comfortable at all times of the day and night. Conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and other medical needs may require assistance during the night as well as during the day. 24-hour care ensures that someone is always available to help your loved one get to and from the bathroom safely, adjust their position in bed, or prevent wandering. Someone is always awake and attending to needs immediately as they arise.
24-hour care is sometimes the next step after overnight care. It may be the first step after someone has come out of a facility when someone needs more intensive help. If your family member needs assistance during both the day and night, 24-hour care allows them to receive the one-on-one assistance they need in the comfort of their own home.
With 24-hour care, two or more caregivers will monitor your loved one’s care at all times so that someone is always awake and available to help. Caregivers will assist your loved one with mobility, fall prevention, bathing and dressing, personal care, wandering prevention, meal preparation, medication reminders, and other needs.
24-hour care is an excellent and often superior alternative to skilled nursing facilities for people with a variety of health needs:
If your loved one needs supervision at night, overnight care may be the best option for you. In an overnight care arrangement, the caregiver will remain attentive to your loved one throughout the night and will be available to offer assistance as needed.
Live-in care provides consistent, continuous care from a single caregiver. This person lives and sleeps in the home, providing companionship and assistance with daily activities. It differs from 24-hour care and overnight care in that the caregiver will sleep at night while your loved one sleeps.
There’s nothing more comforting than knowing your family member is well-cared for. 24-hour care provides round-the clock assistance to help your loved one age with dignity in the comfort of home.
