Hospital Companion Or Nursing Home Companion Care For Seniors Las Vegas, NV and the Surrounding Area?
Hospital companions and nursing home companion care for seniors can help to keep your loved one company or socially engaged during a prolonged stay in the hospital in Las Vegas, NV.
As seniors age, it tends to be inevitable that they end up in a hospital or assisted living facility for an extended period of time at some point. When this happens seniors can experience feelings of anxiety, loneliness, boredom, or fear, making it extra important for the family or friends to be there for support. Despite this being the case it can be a challenge for family or friends to visit the senior between their own work, caring for children, or other personal commitments. When this is the case, Comfort Keepers of Las Vegas, NV can step in to help with hospital companion and nursing home companion care for seniors.
The purpose of hospital companion and nursing home companion care for seniors is to ensure the safety and companionship of the client during their complete hospital or nursing home stay by:
- supporting the agreed-upon care plan and health care team to assist recovery.
- advocating for the client while they remain in the hospital.
- providing incidental transportation when the senior is discharged or during rehabilitation.
- giving peace of mind to family and friends.
- communicating with the medical team as needed.
Our trained and highly skilled companions can visit your senior and engage them in meaningful conversation. This may include a discussion of current events, hobbies, and interests all while taking stock of how the senior feels and what they need to feel more comfortable in the nursing home or hospital. Companions may also take part in games or activities such as cards or puzzles during their visit to keep your loved one occupied.
Companions can also monitor medications and the intake of fluids while advocating for your senior to receive the highest quality of care available at the facility they are in. Additionally, a companion caregiver can take care of household chores, taking care of pets, watering plants, and running other errand s to make sure the home is ready when your loved one is discharged.
This can then lead right into transitional home care for seniors in which a caregiver assists your loved one with returning to normal life from a facility. To find out more about hospital companion and nursing home companion services contact one of our care consultants today!
