You want to be there with your elderly family member every minute of the day; unfortunately, you simply can't. Life has so many responsibilities—including caring for your loved one and ensuring that they are happy and healthy—that it can be difficult to balance them all. For many of us, when a loved one has surgery or needs round the clock care, finding a solution can feel hopeless. Senior Helpers can help! Our dedicated caregivers are trained to provide elderly sitter service and comprehensive non-medical in-home care and assistance to seniors recovering from surgery.

Why Elderly Sitter Service?

The majority of our clients use sitter services when they require surgery (though this is certainly not the only time). Any senior who needs watchful care for any amount of time can benefit from these services, which are available anywhere from a few hours a day to 24/7 care. In addition, Senior Helpers has short-term and long-term care available, depending on your needs.

We can monitor your elderly loved one while they are in the hospital so that you can get some respite, and then provide care when they transition back to home. This gives you the chance to take care of your own needs, which in turn makes it easier for you to help your loved one with their needs. Our professional, locally-based caregivers are available 24 hours a day to give you the peace of mind that your loved one is not alone. These highly trained caregivers are in-home care experts, so they can take the responsibility off your shoulders.

When your loved one is able to rest and avoid tasks like meal preparation, transportation to appointments, and housekeeping, post-surgical recovery times can often improve. We will assign a qualified caregiver to you or your loved one, based on his or her needs, to give an extra layer of care that can help with a speedy recovery.

Services can typically be provided in the following facilities:

  • Hospitals/Medical Facilities
  • Nursing Homes
  • Continuing Care Retirement Communities (CCRC)
  • Assisted Living Centers

Providing extra care in facilities like those mentioned above will give you even more confidence that your family member is getting everything they need to recover well. Many of these facilities cannot provide the near-constant observance that many elderly people need during times of recovery, so Senior Helpers caregivers help take a load off the shoulders of the facilities’ employees as well.

Benefits of Our Sitter Services Include:

  • A watchful companion for your loved one—Senior Helpers’ trained caregivers do it all: They sit and chat with your family member, help with light housework, remind them when to take medications, and so much more. These watchful companions can provide serious comfort to your loved one as they recover.
  • Peace of mind for you—You can rest easy knowing that your elderly family member is in good hands. This peace of mind frees up your time to keep up on your other daily responsibilities. Even better, you can truly enjoy the time you spend in your loved one’s company, knowing that a professional is there to give any necessary care. 
  • Access to "quick-start" home care servicesIf it turns out that your loved one needs additional in-home care, you can easily add services. All of the care that we provide to our clients is based on their individual needs, which allows us to provide the highest quality care to each of the seniors that we serve.
