24 HOUR CARE
Caring for seniors day and night
24-hour care is for seniors who need around-the-clock assistance from a caregiver. This service focuses on keeping seniors with medical issues living in the comfort of their home.
24 hour care is a superior alternative to a facility or institution based care. Seniors dread moving away from the comfort and familiarity of their own home. The emotional stress at the thought of losing their home and independence often leads to a decline in health and well-being.
When 24-hour care is needed, the caregiver will be awake and available every minute of their shift. For that reason, 24-hour care is broken into two 12-hour shifts. Thistlecreek's caregivers assist with tasks such as medication management, light housekeeping, bathing, dressing, meal preparation and assistance with other activities of daily living. This service can be provided by a caregiver, PSW or nurse, depending on the level of care needed.
