It is one thing if your elderly loved ones need some help around the home during the day. Many families can help their loved ones with chores, transportation, and even some personal care. It is another thing if you have elderly loved ones who need constant care due to a chronic condition or illness. In these cases, families cannot leave their loved ones alone, including at night. If this is the case for your loved ones, you should call Assisting Hands for help.
Assisting Hands Richmond provides live-in and 24-hour care services for seniors in the Richmond, VA area who need constant care. With these services, one of our caregivers will be in the home of your loved one 24 hours a day to provide quality, attentive care.
Our live-in care services are an option for those who need a caregiver present in the home 24 hours a day. With these services, a caregiver will live in your loved one’s home and switch every 3-4 days with a second caregiver. Our caregiver will always be in the home to provide help or react to emergencies, giving you and your loved ones peace of mind.
When you call Assisting Hands Richmond for our live-in care services, we will send a representative to the home of your loved one for an evaluation of their care needs. We will then create a care plan that covers their care needs, including personal care, medication reminders, and help with housekeeping.
Our caregiver will start in the morning, helping your loved ones out of bed and through their morning routines. We are ready to help them with personal grooming including restroom use, bathing, and getting dressed. Throughout the day, we will provide whatever assistance is needed and ensure that your loved ones take their medication. We will then help them through their bedtime routines each night.
Our live-in care services are great for seniors who have recently returned home from a hospital stay, lost their spouse, or have a chronic condition. You will be able to rest easy knowing that our caregiver is in the home ready to help.
Preparing for a Live-In Caregiver
While our caregiver lives in the home, they need to get at least 5 hours of uninterrupted sleep each night. We ask that you provide our caregiver with a space in the home to sleep and keep their things during their shift. The caregiver will clean the area and get it ready for the next caregiver before each shift change.
24-Hour Home Care
If your elderly loved ones need someone alert and awake in the home 24 hours a day, our 24-hour care services are a better option. To provide effective care for 24 straight hours, we assign two caregivers who will take turns working 12-hour shifts. The caregivers will be awake through the entire shift to provide any assistance needed and respond to emergencies.
Seniors who require constant supervision due to a serious illness or chronic condition could benefit greatly from our 24-hour home care services. The presence of our caregivers will put you and your loved ones at ease as they are ready to respond to any issue, 24 hours a day.
