24hr Home Care Services For Seniors

When our par­ent and loved ones start to age, they often have dif­fi­cul­ties in get­ting around, and some­times med­ical issues make that even more prob­lem­at­ic fam­i­lies need­ing 24hr home care. As much as seniors will pre­fer to stay at home and age in place, long-term care such as around the clock care and the con­cern of fam­i­ly mem­bers can pres­sure seniors into seek­ing a nurs­ing facil­i­ty. For­tu­nate­ly, there are options avail­able for those who want to age in place in their own homes — 24 hour home care can help.

How 24hr Home Care Works!

With Prece­dence Home Health­care 24 hour home care, two care­givers assign dai­ly and work 12 hours shift. Some­times 3 x 8-hour vis­its pre­ferred to ensure care­givers at their max­i­mum lev­el of aware­ness. One care­giv­er works a max­i­mum of 4 x 12-hour vis­its per week. There is no sleep­ing time for a care­giv­er dur­ing a 12-hour shift. How­ev­er, you can allow an overnight care­giv­er to sleep if you choose to. 24-hour care billed at an hourly rate. The overnight care is charged at a flat rate if it is a sleep­ing vis­it and hourly rate if it is a non-sleep­ing vis­it.

Ser­vices include but not lim­it­ed to the fol­low­ing:

  • Bathing and dress­ing
  • Meal plan­ning and prepa­ra­tion
  • Errands
  • House­keep­ing
  • Laun­dry assis­tance
  • Com­pan­ion­ship
  • Med­ica­tion man­age­ment
  • Med­ical appoint­ments
  • Trans­fer­ring and posi­tion­ing
  • One-on-one focus and sup­port

Many old­er adults strug­gle to per­form all the dai­ly tasks need­ed to live a qual­i­ty and safe life, Even so, they want to live at home until they pass, or “age in place” as is it called. Often, home care ser­vices may be able to help with many activ­i­ties of dai­ly liv­ing, but if cir­cum­stances changes and they can­not safe­ly be alone through­out the day and night, what are they to do then? These are the ben­e­fit of 24 hour home care.

The Benefit of 24hr home care (increased recovery)

When loved one suf­fered from a major ill­ness or had a surgery, being able to reha­bil­i­tate at home will speeds recov­ery. Hav­ing to stay in the hos­pi­tal or anoth­er set­ting for an extend­ed peri­od can be trau­ma­tiz­ing to old­er peo­ple. By recov­er­ing in a famil­iar envi­ron­ment, old­er peo­ple can heal more quick­ly and reduce the risk of re-hos­pi­tal­iza­tion. The num­ber of doc­tor vis­its decreased since recov­ery is quick­er and less trau­mat­ic.

24hr home care No Loss of Independence

The fears for old­er adults are los­ing their inde­pen­dence and mov­ing into a nurs­ing home or long-term care facil­i­ty. That is because change can be dif­fi­cult for seniors. They don’t want to live with peo­ple they don’t know. They are used to the famil­iar­i­ty and com­fort of their own home – a place they may have lived in for decades. Seniors typ­i­cal­ly do not thrive on restric­tions. They want to have as much inde­pen­dence as pos­si­ble, and aging in place at home allows that. They can con­tin­ue to live their own lives with­out hav­ing to abide by the rules of a nurs­ing home facil­i­ty.

Better 24hr home Care

Nurs­ing homes and care facil­i­ties pro­vide the sim­i­lar care to old­er peo­ple. The care that an in-home care­giv­er pro­vides, on the oth­er hand, is tai­lored to the patient’s needs. The care­giv­er-focused on only one patient dur­ing that time. There are few­er dis­trac­tions and less stress, mak­ing the care expe­ri­ence much bet­ter.

24hr home care is Safer Care

Believe it or not, old­er peo­ple liv­ing at home is safer and healthy than being in a hos­pi­tal or care facil­i­ty. That is because more than 20% of hos­pi­tal patients devel­op an infec­tion, where­as the risk of devel­op­ing an infec­tion at home is vir­tu­al­ly non-exis­tent. The home envi­ron­ment is safe to haven; where your loved one will receive 24 hour home care atten­tion than hav­ing to wait that often exists in nurs­ing homes and oth­er care facil­i­ties.
