Senior citizens and adults who have chronic illnesses and conditions often need daily assistance and cannot be left alone in case of an emergency. This makes it difficult for families to care for these individuals and the family often feels stressed about leaving a loved one with a serious condition or illness alone at night. Families in this situation may find it beneficial to work with a home care agency like Assisting Hands and receive live-in and 24-hour care.
At Assisting Hands Home Care, we can provide in-home care to people who need 24-hour care in Fort Worth, TX, and the surrounding areas with our 24-hour and live-in care services. Our licensed and trained caregiver will be in the house 24 hours a day and will guarantee your loved one is never left home alone.
Live-in care services are an option for people who need a caregiver present day and night. We will assign two caregivers, who will alternate living in the home for 3-4 days at a time to help with personal care and other assistance throughout the day.
When you contact Assisting Hands for our live-in care services, you will be sent a staff member to meet with you and assess your loved one’s unique care needs. With your assistance, we will create and implement a care plan that accounts for your loved one’s specific needs and guarantees that one of our caregivers will always be present in the home. Our caregivers can help with meal preparation, light housekeeping, personal care, medication reminders, and transportation as needed.
Our live-in home care providers will help your loved one with dressing, bathing, and other tasks involved in their morning routine. We will be present awake during the day to help around the house and provide personal assistance. At night, we will help your loved one with their evening routines.
If you or a loved one has recently returned from the hospital, live alone, or recently lost a spouse or other family member, you may need live-in care assistance. Our caregivers will always provide quality care and compassion to your loved one, especially during a tough situation.
Preparing for Live-In Care
Our live-in caregiver will require space and time to sleep if they will be present for 3-4 days, so please designate a space in the home for our caregiver to reside. Our caregivers need at least 5 hours of sleep to properly function and provide care to your loved one. At the end of a shift, the caregiver will prepare and clean the designated space for the next caregiver.
24-Hour In-Home Care
Our live-in and 24-hour home care services sound similar but differ in a very important way. 24-hour care ensures that a caregiver will always be present in the home and ready to provide care or respond to an emergency. We will assign your loved one with two caregivers who will switch shifts ever 12 hours. Our caregivers will be awake and alert during their shifts and will not need their own space within the home.
People who have chronic illnesses and conditions that require constant care may benefit from our 24-hour home care services. Our caregivers will be alert and ready to respond to an emergency 24/7, allowing you and your loved one peace of mind.
