Caregivers for 24 Hour Home Care

It is a known fact that there are certain situations where you or your loved one may need 24 hour  home care. If you are reading this, you or your loved one probably needs 24 hour home care, except if you are just reading for the love of it, or for learning. Whatever the case is, it is important to also know what kind of caregivers will be needed for a 24 hour care and what those caregivers are required to do. So, we will go on to explore the roles these caregivers will play in the life of a person needing 24 hour care. We will also briefly talk about who needs this type of round the clock care and its benefits. So let us begin without wasting any more time. Shall we?

We will begin with defining who needs 24 hour home care. So who needs it anyway?

Almost anyone needing care can need 24 hour home care but there are some noteworthy situations when 24 hour home care or private duty home care will be required round the clock. Among these include progressive medical conditions such as:

Alzheimer’s  

Dementia, 

Multiple Sclerosis  

Diabetes, 

Surgery 

Injuries 

Some other situations in which a person may need 24 hour home care include discharge from the hospital after giving birth, in which case both the mother and baby will need to be cared for, and old age. In the case of old age and any other conditions where mobility or moving about freely is a challenge, you will usually need someone to carry or guide you to the toilet, or bedroom and you will need this in the daytime or night hence a 24 hour care will be needed.

What Do Caregivers Do During a 24 Hour Home care?

During a 24 hour home care, caregivers offer basically the same services as are offered in every caregiving situation, depending on the specific needs of the client. Since a 24 hour home care situation covers both day and night, everything a patient needs to thrive in whatever condition he or she finds himself in is offered. The important point here is that it is done round the clock.

Caregivers in a 24 hour home care can provide you with services such as transportation, meal preparation, light housekeeping, respite care, activities of daily living such as bathing, eating, dressing, grooming, and restroom assistance, in-house mobility, companionship, running of errands, mail delivery, medication management and reminders, washing and pressing of clothes (laundry) or taking them to the dry cleaners as the case may be, general monitoring, and every other tasks necessary to care for you or your loved one. Whatever care you need can be provided in a 24 hour home care service.

Caregivers also carry out transfer and ambulating assistance, accompany you or your loved one to a function, the movie, a family gathering etc., health monitoring, fall prevention, assistance with light exercise, and supervision. Patients need supervision in many areas and our caregivers in 24 hour home care do not fail to provide this. They supervise the intake of prescribed drugs, ensure a patient is eating right as opposed to just eating anything they see, and ensure he or she is getting enough rest and sleep too. Besides these, a caregiver also ensures that a patient stays away from whatever the doctor says should be avoided, for example alcohol. There are even situations where a caregiver will have to monitor a patient to ensure they are not abusing a drug that has been prescribed by the doctor. Examples abound in cases where a patient has a serious or terminal disease like cancer and has been prescribed certain drugs that ease the pain but are not good for everyday consumption.

What are the Benefits of 24 hour home Care?

The benefits are many but they all boil down to the fact that the patient gets to be cared for round the clock and that the primary caregiver for the patient also gets respite care and enough time to recharge. Family member get peace of mind too. They do not have to worry about the state or safety of their loved one whether is day or night. With a caregiver present at all times, this is assured. A subtle benefit is that a trained or professional caregiver will be in the home at all times. This is opposed to situations where a caregiver is only present during the day and a family member takes over at night. While it is good to have a family member present as in this arrangement above, the family member may not be trained to handle everything that the patient will need and in a case of an emergency the family member may not know what to do or may fall asleep. With a trained caregiver around, things are different.

Another major benefit of 24 hour home care is that the patient will remain in the community where he or she feels they belong. This is a very important thing. It is not always necessary that a patient must be hospitalized or moved into a care facility. Most seniors do not even want that. They see senior care homes as just a place with a bunch of other seniors like them, most of whom have one health challenge or the other. They do not want to stay in a place that reminds them of old age and sickness everywhere they turn. They want to be in a community that speaks of health and normal life. They want to be around friends and family if possible – people they have bonded with, shared some experiences with, and have some fond memories with. They want to be home and with a caregiver in their home all day and night, they get what they want.

Caregivers, in a 24 hour home care or private duty home care situation, are able to help a patient live to their best. They carry out all the tasks that are necessary to enable a patient thrive and enjoy their days or even heal and recover fast. These activities include all the activities of daily living such as eating, bathing and grooming, dressing, restroom assistance, transportation and medication management. Some other tasks these caregivers carry out include meal preparation, companionships, light housekeeping, running of errands and many more. The goal is to ensure that a senior, loved one with a disability or a sickness, has all the assistance they need to live to the fullest or recover fast.
