Knowing When It Is Time to Hire Overnight Senior Care
Friday, September 18, 2015
When a loved one needs a higher level of care, you family will be faced with an important decision, but the option to remain at home may well still be a viable one. Eventually, the responsibility on family caregivers can become so great that it becomes impossible for them to run their own lives at the same time. Should this situation arise, it may be time to hire around-the-clock senior care.
Overnight and live-in homecare is an option worth considering for elderly relatives who need more assistance with day-to-day tasks, as well as help with things like feeding, dressing, toileting and moving about. If your loved one is unable to look after themselves in these respects, around-the-clock care becomes essential for the sake of their comfort and safety.
Understanding Overnight Senior Care Options
Here at SYNERGY HomeCare, we can provide tailor-made care plans for those requiring a higher level of assistance. We can provide caregivers who will be able to assist around the clock should your loved one need their attention. They will be there should your elderly relative require assistance with things like toileting during the night or immediate aid in the event of an emergency. Having a caregiver at home around the clock will give both your senior relative and the rest of your family the peace of mind knowing that they are in safe hands and able to enjoy a good night's sleep in the comfort of their own home.
Keeping Your Loved Ones Safe
Provided that your loved one does not require ongoing medical care on a daily basis, in-home care is a very viable alternative to having them relocate to a specialized nursing facility. Ultimately, round-the-clock care exists to help minimize the risk of falls and other accidents that might lead to admission to a nursing home. Our compassionate live-in and overnight care givers will also be there to offer homemaking and companionship services to help make certain that your elderly relatives can continue to live as full a life as possible.
At SYNERGY HomeCare, we understand that all of our clients have individual needs, hence our customized care plans are here to help. Our caregivers can offer attentive 24-hour care whereby three caregivers will rotate through shifts to make sure that someone is always present should your loved one need assistance. However, if 24-hour care is not required, sleep-over care is another option we can provide.
