There are many advantages to 24-hour home care for an aging loved one requiring assistance at home. For starters, it's convenient to have a trained and dedicated professional, known as a CAREGiver, arrive at your home and provide excellent care for your loved one. This is also convenient for your family members acting as family CAREGivers having the assistance of an experienced and properly trained caregiving professional.
Another benefit to 24-hour home care in Pittsburgh, PA, is that the ailing and elderly patients that receive this individualized treatment typically heal faster and respond better to physical therapy and other exercises. Studies support the notion that being in a comfortable setting when you are recovering from a serious ailment only helps the rehabilitation process because the patient feels secure and comfortable in this environment. Simply put, having a little bit of independence in a care service environment can be very beneficial. Lastly, the affordability factor of 24-hour care is a much more cost-effective approach to ensuring your loved one is receiving excellent care compared to an extended hospital stay.
With 24-hour care we offer two approaches to providing excellent care.
Shift-service is when we utilize 5 to 6 CAREGivers at a time to work 8 hour shifts at your home. Rotating every 8 hours, 3 CAREGivers individually work on any given day. This service is great for patients that are bed-bound or experiencing limited mobility.
Live-In Serviceis when we utilize 3 or 4 CAREGivers that individually work a consecutive 24-hour shift each day. The CAREGivers rotate every day working one out of three days in a row. This is a great care approach for elderly patients that may need help getting to the bathroom in the middle of night; however, this type of care requires quarters for the CAREGiver to sleep in and meals must be provided as well.
