To provide care, services and support for a person in a senior living community who has a life-limiting illness. A private caregiver can be there when their hospice nurse isn’t.

When an aging loved one resides in a nursing care community, hospice house or an assisted living center, we often find ourselves wishing we could be with them around the clock. It might be because the private assisted living home doesn’t provide twenty-four hour care or when they live in a group home they may still need additional personal care assistance a few hours a week. Whatever the case, it can be extremely helpful to bring in private caregivers to assist in filling in the gaps left by the regular facility staff.

Families of an elderly loved one can inquire after a private caregiver to help in situations such as these:

  • When a senior with dementia is hospitalized and needs someone with them in their hospital room or memory care facility for safety reasons around the clock.
  • To provide care, services and support for a person in a senior living community who has a life-limiting illness. A private caregiver can be there when their hospice nurse isn’t.
  • To check in on an older adult who lives in a nursing home to make certain their needs are being met and they have the one-on-one time they need.
  • Private caregivers can assist with unpacking and settling in as a senior is transitioning from their private residence to an independent living facility or retirement community.
  • If a senior is in a skilled nursing and rehabilitation center recovering from an illness or surgery, a caregiver can be there to help provide a higher level of support with personal care needs.
  • When adult child lives out of town and wants an aging loved one who lives in assisted living to have a little extra care and support on a routine basis.
  • For older adults in group homes with limited life enrichment programming, caregivers can accompany them on walks, take them shopping and spend one-on-one time playing games and completing craft projects.
  • When a senior needs overnight care and lives in a care community or group home setting that doesn’t provide service during night time hours.

Whatever kind of care facility is the setting, private caregivers can be a good solution for the entire family. The senior benefits from receiving additional support and attention; while the family gains peace of mind that their loved one is safe and well cared for.
