Did you know you can hire a private home health aide for a little extra care in a hospital or rehab?
All of us live in fear of not having the care we need when in a vulnerable position. We also worry about family members when they go to the hospital or transfer to rehab. Your instinct is to stay with them, make sure they get the care they need. What if they need an extra blanket, or a trip to the bathroom and there is no one available to help? Without an advocate, they can quickly start to lose their dignity. If there is even slight dementia, being alone in unfamiliar circumstances can lead to a downward spiral.
The problem is it is utterly exhausting to stay with a loved one in a hospital 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
There is another option. That option is Seniors In Place.
Whether for a few hours when mom or dad first goes in or a little extra help while in the hospital or rehab, let our family care for your family.
