Seniors prefer to live in their own homes as they age, and that’s why home care is a great option for them. But as seniors get older, the amount of care they need increases and there is often confusion or concern about having a caregiver in the home for 24 hours a day.
So who really needs 24 hour care?
- Fall risk
If your loved one is prone to falls, he or she may need continuous monitoring to help reduce future falls.
Wandering is very dangerous, so it is important to implement continuous monitoring if your loved one starts to wander.
- Physical limitations
Mobility issues greatly affect what seniors can do on their own. If physical limitations are affecting everyday life and activities, 24 hour care would be beneficial.
Often, when people return home from the hospital, especially if they’ve had a procedure, they will need more help at home while they are recovering.
24 hour care is a good solution for people who need monitoring around the clock. Often, it is difficult for family members to offer this kind of care for their loved ones, and that is why we are here to help. If you or a loved one need in-home care, call Executive Home Care today!
