Who Can Benefit from Overnight Home Care
Overnight home care services are beneficial for more than just seniors. Due to the unique challenges of the night, we assist individuals with one or more of the following traits:
- Loss of vision
- A history of falling
- Physical limitations (often due to surgeries or pregnancies)
- Memory loss
Limited lighting, disorientation, and fatigue are the primary factors contributing to accidents at night, while certain individuals may have medical conditions that warrant continual care. If you or a loved one fits into any of these categories, we recommend giving us a call for overnight home care.
Informal Care vs. Professional Care
Many family members attempt to care for loved ones as needed, but this can result in a number of problems. Statistics show roughly 25% of informal caregivers report poor health themselves. This is because of stress, lack of sleep, and the fact that these duties are often added on top of a career and other responsibilities.
The individuals receiving the care will also be at a greater risk because of the natural fatigue of the informal caregiver. By utilizing our home care services, your loved one will receive more attentive care, and informal caregivers will receive the peace of mind they deserve.
