When daily living assistance is needed, receiving quality care services right at home boasts benefits that truly enhance everyday living. With a trusted caregiver and familiar surroundings, individuals are able to experience the best of both worlds. There are times, however, when being admitted to a hospital or a rehabilitation center truly is the best option in the event that medical care and treatment are required. Length of stay is a variable, though feeling uneasy in an unfamiliar place is quite common. In some cases, hospital/facility stays can last much longer than expected. Having someone present in these moments who will sit with you, listen, take notes and be a companion can make all the difference when away from home, and fortunately this is an option for those who have already been receiving in-home care services and those who may be newly searching.
Here at Aqua Home Care, trusted caregivers from our registry provide their clients with quality support whether in their home or, when possible, while staying in a hospital or facility. Clients who are already receiving in-home care services when they find they must enter a hospital may request that their caregiver continue to be by their side when possible during their stay. In other cases where in-home care hasn’t already been established, individuals may request a caregiver who can be by their loved one’s side and provide support during a hospital stay. Whatever the situation may be, compassionate caregivers can help make time away from home more comfortable by:
- Offering support
- Playing games
- Taking notes
- Relaying information to loved ones
- Offering meal assistance
- And more
Personal care isn’t always limited to one’s home. When the location changes, it is possible for support to follow. We have had the pleasure of seeing the special bonds that form between in-home care recipients and their caregivers over the years. When clients must leave their home, they often feel more comfortable having their caregiver be with them whenever possible while away. Others may not already be receiving in-home care, but would benefit from having a compassionate caregiver visit with them at a hospital or rehabilitation center. Our Aqua Home Care team works to accommodate those in need of support in these situations. We understand the unease that can come from having to be away from the comforts of home, and that having someone by your side during that time can make a world of difference. For compassionate, trusted, reliable care both here and there, call our Aqua Home Care team.
