The most common services families inquire about our hourly care services. They are looking for under twenty-four hours a day of services but still need a caregiver to make sure their parent is safe.
Hourly Care Services
There are a number of situations where adult children decide to call us. It can be for long-term needs or even for a day. There is no situation that we can’t speak with you about and try and give you the best options available.
For hourly care services here are some of the more common situations.
Assisted Living Facility
Assisted living facilities have a lot of private agencies working with a client in them. When an older adult starts to decline, they can require more services than the ALF can provide, the family is then told that their parent is no longer appropriate for the community unless they secure outside help.
Some of the more common reasons:
• The senior has dementia but refused to go to the memory care unit
• The senior has had a stroke
• The senior is a fall risk and safety risk
• Ongoing hospital trips
• Discharging from the hospital back to the ALF (this can be for a few days to a few months depending on the senior’s recovery)
We have provided care to seniors who would be unsafe at home while their children are at work and school. So we offer “while-at-work” hourly care where we can provide care for 6-8 hours a day.
This allows a family member to run errands, go to work, or children to go to school and when they get home, the caregiver can leave for the day.
Companionship hourly cases are common and can occur in any setting.
We have provided companionship to seniors who were in a hospital or rehab centers and their family just didn’t want them to be alone.
Other cases have been when the family is leaving on a vacation and they want their parent to be with someone during the day. This allows everyone peace of mind that if their parent needed assistance someone would be there.
A bond and friendship can be made between the caregiver and the client and it makes it much more enjoyable when they are working and spending time together.
There are countless times where have provided transportation for seniors as part of our hourly care services
Common examples are:
• Hospital/Doctor Appointments
• Events with Family
• Grocery Shopping/Dining Out
We can drive your parent’s care or have the caregiver drive their care when providing transportation. The majority of case, the caregiver is driving their own vehicle.
