Hospital Facility Home Care Aide Companion Care Services in Springfield, PA
Seniors diagnosed with dementia and Alzheimer's often become confused and agitated when faced with a new environment such as hospital room. The seniors can become agitated with nursing staff often wanting to get out of bed repeatedly, wander out of hospital room and/or become verbally and physically abusive towards staff. Having a senior who has the potential to wander off in a hospital can be very stressful for family members who have to work and are unable to stay with them all hours of the day.
