An important member of the healthcare team, a hospital sitter, or patient sitter, plays a vital role in assisting physicians and nurses when caring for vulnerable elderly patients. The presence of a hospital sitter lightens the burden on family members who may wish to take a break to go home or grab a bite to eat. A-1 Home Care’s skilled patient sitters will stay by your elderly loved one’s side to monitor any abnormal changes such as low blood pressure or an elevated heart rate, which potentially could result in death if the patient is discharged prematurely from the hospital. Oftentimes, in a hurry to bring loved ones home, family members make the grave mistake of pressuring hospital administrators to release their elderly loved ones but an experienced hospital sitter will know when your loved one’s condition is stable enough to return home. In San Marino and surrounding cities, A-1 Home Care works with local hospitals to provide 24 hour personalized elder care.
Round-the-clock personalized care doesn’t end upon hospital discharge, either. If you want the patient sitter to follow your elderly loved one home to provide consistency in senior care, A-1 Home Care will help you establish a long-term care plan based on the level of care, budget and scheduling needs you have. Our live-in caregivers will take your loved ones to follow-up medical appointments or dental appointments around San Marino. Additionally, live-in care includes assistance with meal preparation, light housekeeping, medication monitoring, prescription pick-ups, bathing, grooming, personal hygiene, companion care and more.
A-1 Home Care does not take elder care lightly. For 25 years, A-1 Home Care has continually provided excellent elder care in a variety of settings, such as in-home care, memory care facilities, hospice care, long-term and short-term care, in-patient care, rehabilitation centers, assisted living care, after-surgery care, and specialized care (i.e., Alzheimer’s & Dementia Care and Parkinson’s Care).
