An extended stay in a hospital or nursing home can create significant anxiety, loneliness and fear, and it is very difficult for family members to be there for their loved one around the clock. Home Instead of Vancouver’s trained CAREGivers can fill in as needed, including overnight care or 24-hour care, when your loved one is away from home.
Our CAREGivers are trained companions that will share the time in conversation, reading, playing games, watching TV or movies, or engaging in activities like scrapbooking. We can help monitor medications and fluid intake and ensure the facility is providing the care required. For extended stays in the hospital or nursing home, our CAREGivers can also hold down the home front by retrieving mail, watering plants and running other errands.
Our CAREGivers can provide a healthy respite for family and friends while filling in gaps to reduce the loneliness and boredom of an extended time away from home, family and friends. You can benefit from our experience in working with many other local families while their loved ones are in the hospital or nursing home.
