When a loved one is in the hospital you want to be there with them, but that isn't always possible. If you live far away, work full time, or have other family to care for, it may be difficult for you to get to the hospital. Let ComForcare help by providing caregivers to attend to your loved one.
Hospital Sitter Services
Our experienced caregivers are available 24 hours a day. Whether you just want someone to sit with your loved one while you take a much needed break to rest and refresh or you need someone to stay with your loved one for the full extent of their hospital stay, our flexible scheduling means we can provide the care you need when you need it. We will work with you to provide just the right amount of assistance so that your loved one never has to be alone.
Having an experienced caregiver nearby can help to ease some of the fears that hospital patients typically have regarding illnesses and injuries. Caregivers can answer questions about conditions and help patients understand what life may be like following discharge. While caregivers will defer to doctors regarding specific case details, caregivers can provide emotional support and knowledge that may be comforting. Caregivers will also read or play games with patients to help relieve boredom and anxiety.
Caregivers are there to supervise when nurses and medical staff aren’t, so using hospital sitter services can help your loved one to stay safer and more comfortable. ComForCare caregivers are happy to help make adjustments to hospital beds and tables, open or close blinds, assist with eating or drinking, and any other tasks that may make patients more comfortable.
If patients need clothing, personal items, or supplies, caregivers can take a trip to gather the desired items. If any changes in a patient’s condition occur, ComForCare caregivers are there to alert hospital staff or family members.
If the hospital discharges your loved one with little notice, you live out of town, or work responsibilities prevent you from taking them home yourself, take advantage of ComForCare's Transition of Care Packages. Our caregivers will not only take your loved one home, they will help them to get acclimated to the new daily routines that may be needed following a condition diagnosis or injury.
Caregivers will help organize the home to best accommodate medical equipment and to ease mobility for your loved one. Caregivers will also assist your loved one with all of their housekeeping and grooming needs as they adjust to the transition from hospital to home.
