When a senior citizen needs constant supervision in their home, this can be very difficult for families to accommodate. Certain conditions and chronic illnesses require constant supervision as those affected will need assistance throughout the day and night and an emergency can occur at any time. If you cannot leave your loved ones unsupervised, you can work with Assisting Hands Home Care to ensure that someone is in the home 24/7.
At Assisting Hands Home Care, we provide live-in and 24-hour care services in Gilbert, AZ and the surrounding areas. With these services, we can provide your loved ones with constant supervision so that a trained and licensed caregiver is always in the home (Click to see the Full List of Services).
Our live-in care services are what the name suggests, one of our caregivers will live in the home with your loved ones to provide them with the care and assistance they need. We will assign two live-in caregivers who will live in the home for 3-4 days at a time and alternate. With this arrangement, there will always be a caregiver in the home to respond to any and all needs.
These services start with a meeting in the home of your loved one so we can assess their care needs. We will then create a home care plan that accommodates your loved one’s personal care needs as well as other assistance needed around the home such as meal preparation and light housekeeping.
Our live-in caregiver will be present each morning to help your loved ones with their morning routines including getting out of bed, bathing, and dressing. The caregiver will remain in the home throughout the day to provide assistance, prepare meals, remind your loved ones to take their medication, and keep the home in order. We will also help your loved ones get to bed each night.
If your loved one has recently lost a spouse, lives alone, or returned from a hospital stay, our live-in care services can be beneficial. Having one of our caregivers living in the home to provide quality, compassionate care and respond to emergencies will bring some peace of mind to your family.
Preparing for a Live-In Caregiver
While one of our caregivers is living in the home of your loved one, they will need some time to sleep at night. Those who choose our live-in care services need to provide our caregiver with a space to sleep and keep their personal belongings. We expect our caregivers to be allowed at least 5 hours of uninterrupted sleep at night. The caregiver will clean the space and change the sheets when it is time for the next caregiver to take over.
24-Hour Home Care
Meal Preparation, Medication Reminders and Safety/Fall Prevention
The 24-hour home care services we provide are more intensive than our live-in care services. With these services, we assign two caregivers who alternate 12 hour shifts so that a caregiver is awake in the home for the full 24 hours. You will not need to provide our caregiver with a space to sleep because they will be awake and attentive through their entire 12-hour shift.
These services are ideal for those with a chronic illness or condition that requires an attentive caregiver. You and your loved ones can rest easy knowing that our trained and licensed caregivers are ready to respond at a moment’s notice, 24 hours a day.
