24 Hour Home Care in Maple Shade, NJ
Leading 24 hour home care for seniors in need of full-time care.
There are many reasons your senior loved one may require 24-hour care. The first thing many people think about is late-stage dementia or Alzheimer's disease, and, while these conditions almost always require round-the-clock care, they are not the only reasons this care may be necessary.
The Benefits of 24 Hour Home Care
Today, more than every before, hospital stays are limited, and many surgeries that once required a multiple-day recovery are now performed on an outpatient basis. Even when patients are sent home after surgery, however, the standard is often 24 hours of supervision and care. It is not just the pain medication or lack of mobility that is concerning, but it is important to ensure there are not any complications that arise from the anesthesia, sutures, or blood clots. That said, many surgeries also severely limit a person's mobility and strong pain medications may be prescribed for some time after the procedure. These medications may alter a person's mood, ability to think clearly, or to move safely. For seniors, this is of particular concern, since falling is already a serious issue.
Other reasons a senior may require full-time care include any condition that required complete bed-rest, end-of-life or hospice care, supervision after an injury to the back or head, or a situation where the senior may be at risk of hurting themselves due to a mental or cognitive disorder.
Whether it is short or long-term, full-time care affords the senior the supervision they need when and where they need it. Not to be confused with live-in care, full-time care consists of two to four shifts of caregivers working six to twelve hours so there is uninterrupted coverage. A live-in caregiver will only provide eight to 12 hours of actual care and supervision based on their contract and state labor laws. With full-time care, seniors know there will always be somebody available to help them, provide care, keep them comfortable, and even anticipate their needs.
