24/7 Care - Allowing Seniors to Live Comfortably in Their Homes
Caring for your aging loved one is challenging when you factor in work, driving, or having to look after others in your family. As your loved one ages, their needs increase, making 24/7 care a necessity that not everyone can provide. Thankfully, moving your loved one to a retirement home isn't the only option.
Our 24/7 Care, 365 Days of the Year
Home Care Book's 24/7 care guarantees there is a caregiver to address any needs or requirements your loved one has. As someone ages, keeping a sense of independence and home familiarity benefits their well-being and mental health. It helps eliminate loneliness and depression, giving your family a better quality of life.
Home Care for Elderly in Their Own Homes
At-home care is a standard solution for the elderly. It's a solution when the elder's guardian has too much going on in life, mentally or externally. Most seniors prefer living in their homes because it's familiar and comfortable.
24/7 care provides the solace of knowing your family member is protected where they live. That way, you can visit to spend time together instead of only going there to care for your relative when they require it.
What 24/7 Care Entails
Since this care requires 24/7 attention, at least two caretakers take turns to guarantee somebody is aware and accessible whenever your loved one needs something. You never know when an emergency might come up and demand attention from a professional.
A prepared and ready caretaker is consistently alert to oversee your cherished one. Shift changes guarantee caretakers are rested and prepared to address various circumstances. Seniors who wander around any time of the day can benefit from somebody being aware of their movements.
Signs to Switch to 24/7 Care
- Expanded confusion because of dementia
- A feeling of disconnection or isolation because of being alone
- Needing help to drink or eat
- Diminished agility and versatility because of a stroke or a chronic condition
- Move by family or companions who gave previous care
- Indications of bruising that demonstrate falls or trips
- Wetting the bed or other "mishaps" because of a failure to go to the bathroom alone
- Heavy dependence on assistive hardware
- Wandering around and away from home
24/7 Care vs. Live-In Care
With 24/7 care, your adored one gets care nonstop. There's no requirement for rest breaks or stops since at least two caretakers can exchange shifts. Depending on local laws, there might be more caretakers because of shift changes and break requirements.
Live-in care varies from 24/7 care because it's usually a single caretaker during the day who gets an eight-hour break and a bed to rest. It allows the caretaker to become familiar with your senior, understanding their needs, moods, and routines.
Live-in care is ideal for patients who stay asleep throughout the night with little help. The patient doesn't require attention because of wandering or other possibly hazardous tasks. Whereas the 24/7 variation guarantees your loved one has someone looking after them no matter the hour.
