24 Hour Home Care in Fox Chapel, PA
Leading 24 hour home care for seniors needing full-time care.
Many seniors will reach a point in their life when they cannot safely remain alone. Sometimes, this may be due to a short-term injury or illness, or it may be the result of a progressive degeneration, disease, or other illness. Examples include late stage dementia, Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease, as well as hip or back surgeries, injuries to the legs, and other conditions that severely limit cognition or mobility. In this case, 24 hour home care can keep them safe while allowing for the freedom and independence that comes from remaining in one's own home.
Fox Chapel 24 Hour Home Care
Seniors who live alone may require short-term 24 hour home care when transitioning from the hospital to the home, even when the hospitalization was just overnight (or sometimes, even after an outpatient procedure). Seniors with families nearby typically have a family member check in on them during these situations, but a senior who does not have this option may be looking at a convalescent home stay if they do not have a plan for safe supervision and care as may be required by their physician prior to discharge.
Most full-time care is provided to seniors who require long-term care and supervision. When family caregivers provide this long-term care, they eventually find themselves running on empty. Constant fatigue leads to medical and mental health issues. The remedy involves the caregiver taking time off to care for their own physical and mental health. Even occasional, short respite breaks have been found to have great benefits. Sadly, many family caregivers feel trapped and unable to take even a short break because of the extent of their loved one's needs. Comfort Keepers 24 hour home care gives family caregivers the peace of mind it takes for them to take a respite break and truly relax, knowing that their loved one is safe and receiving effective, compassionate, and loving care.
