When your relatives become older and reach their golden years, you may feel more uncomfortable about leaving them alone at night. There’s always a chance of a medical emergency occurring during the night, and this is especially so if your elderly relatives have an illness or chronic condition. If no one is available to immediately respond to the emergency, then the outcome can be serious. It helps to have a family member at home with your elderly loved ones at night, but even they might not be able to help if they can’t respond fast enough or are asleep.
Assisting Hands Home Care can help with such situations through the overnight care services that we offer in St. Charles, IL area. With these services, we have a qualified, trained caregiver come to your loved one’s home during the evening. The caregiver will remain awake and alert throughout the night in case assistance is needed.
