WHEN YOUR LOVED ONE IS HOSPITALIZED
When you or a loved one is hospitalized, someone may still be required to stay and ensure comfort and safety. A1 Health Care Services Hospital Sitter Service offers peace of mind that your loved one is being assisted and watched while they are in the hospital, away from home and family.
Hospital sitters are specialized caregivers provided on an hourly or 24 hour basis. They can be helpful for senior adults who may be disoriented when a family member cannot be in the hospital with them. Sitters provide non-medical care only and ensure your loved one is supervised at all times. They can keep the nurses and physicians updated on the patient’s condition without being involved in the medical treatment.
Hospital sitters are Certified Home Health Aides that are trained in accordance to hospital policies and requirements.
Trained Hospital Sitters can:
Help prevent patient falls
Assist with meal tray service and provide refreshments
Prevent pulling out of tubes or oxygen connections
Offer companionship, reading to patient, playing games, reducing boredom
Keep patient’s area neat and clean
Alert hospital staff in the event of a change or emergency
Contact family for regular updates or in case of emergency
Having a sitter with you or your loved one while hospitalized, helps to ensure that services needed keep you safe, and often improves the outcome of the patient’s recovery. The one-on-one care and advocacy provides both patient and family an extra level of comfort during the hospitalization.
