Palo Alto 'Late Shift' - Overnight Care For Seniors

by Amy, October 08, 2014

Overnight Care for SeniorsFamilies in Palo Alto or the San Francisco area know how exhausting it can be to care for an elderly loved one day in and day out - often overnight. At Care Indeed, our overnight care is designed to ensure your elderly family member is safe and secure during the nighttime hours, while giving you rest and peace of mind.

No one can argue that most seniors fare better when they can live in their own homes, rather than a nursing home. Still, the nighttime hours can be the most dangerous. When an older person needs to get up for a drink of water or to go to the bathroom, it can be risky without help. Falls are common, which can lead to broken hips or even worse. Laying on the floor for hours can result in pneumonia, often fatal for those who are elderly. Our overnight care for seniors services are a welcome relief for San Francisco families who need a bit of extra help so they can rest easy and get some sleep knowing their loved ones are in capable, caring hands.

Perhaps you don't need overnight care on a regular basis, but just temporarily if an elderly mother or father has recently had surgery and is recovering. Those first couple of weeks following surgery can be difficult, particularly for those who are aging. Not only do our Bay Area overnight caregivers make sure your loved one is safe and has help or companionship should he/she be unable to sleep, they also provide care prior to bedtime such as the administering of medications, dressing for bed, and assisting in the morning upon waking.

Caring for an elderly parent or family member can be stressful and tiring, even if you have a spouse who takes turns with you. At Care Indeed, our in-home care services make it possible for both of you to have a much-needed break, while knowing that your loved one is being cared for by licensed professionals who are dedicated to making life the best it can be for those who are aging.
