Unfortunately, you simply can’t always be there for your loved one every second of the day. You have your own job and responsibilities, and while caring for your loved one might be at the top of your priority list, it might be impossible to balance this with your busy life. When a loved one needs surgery or 24/7 care, it can be difficult to find the right solution. At Senior Helpers, however, our dedicated caregivers are trained to provide not only post-surgery assistance, but also an elderly sitter service.
While our elderly sitter services are available anywhere from a few hours a day to 24/7, and are usually utilized by seniors undergoing surgery, they are available to any senior in a variety of situations. Our caregivers can monitor your elderly loved one while they are in the hospital, so that you can feel confident that they are getting appropriate care, and can avoid the hassle of communicating with the hospital for updates. Our professional caregivers are trained to make hospitalized seniors feel like they are never alone, and to ensure that their needs are met.
Our services typically extend to hospitals and medical facilities, nursing homes, continuing care retirement communities, and assisted living centers.
Securing extra care in such facilities will give you the confidence and peace of mind that your loved one is getting everything they need to recover quickly, and according to schedule. It’s common for hospitals and nursing homes to not provide the level of watchfulness and attentiveness many elderly people require post-surgery. Our goal is to eliminate the uncertainty surrounding this difficult time and keep families as informed and comfortable as possible.
We like to think of our caregivers as being jacks-of-all-trades. Our caregivers are trained in a variety of services, and for a broad array of situations. From sitting down and chatting with your family member, to helping with light housework, and reminding them when to take medications, our caregivers do it all. Our elder sitter services are designed to provide serious comfort to your loved one as they recover from their hospital stay.
Like we always say—you can’t put a price on peace of mind. Knowing that your elderly family member is in good hands is one of the best feelings in the world, and our caregivers understand that. When you’re confident that your senior is being looked-after, you can carry on with your other daily responsibilities worry-free and focus on truly enjoying the time you spend in your loved one’s company.
We’ve designed our elderly sitter services to be as flexible as possible. If your loved one needs additional in-home care, we make it easy to add services as needed. All our care options are based on individual need, which we believe allows us to deliver the highest quality care and results.
