The Benefits of 24-Hour Home Care

May 10, 2023

Caring for a loved one is no small task. It can be a full-time job that requires around-the-clock commitment and support from family members and friends. Fortunately, with 24-hour home care, you can ensure that your loved one is well taken care of without sacrificing quality time with them. Let’s examine the benefits of 24-hour home care.  

When Does 24-Hour Care Become Necessary? 

24-hour care has become a very important topic of discussion as the healthcare needs of individuals and families across the country continue to expand. 24-hour care is necessary for special cases where a person's care needs cannot be met by regular, day-time providers. For seniors, 24-hour care can provide additional support for those who need assistance with activities like bathing, dressing and eating, or to handle the constant supervision needed for those with Alzheimer's or dementia. It is also helpful for people with disabilities and chronic illnesses with specialized needs that require 24/7 attention. 24-hour care can help make sure these vulnerable individuals are safe throughout the day and night. In addition, 24-hour care may be necessary to provide family caregivers with much needed respite when they need time away to recharge and refocus on their own lives. Ultimately, 24-hour care is an invaluable service that can help enhance the quality of life for individuals in need of extra support - both during the day and at night. 


Dementia and Alzheimer's Care  

For those living with dementia or Alzheimer's disease, 24-hour home care is essential to ensure their safety and wellbeing. With BrightStar Care’s team of professionals, clients can avoid costly trips to the hospital by having round-the-clock monitoring and assistance in their own homes. This includes help with personal hygiene, meal preparation, light housekeeping, transportation to appointments and activities, as well as companionship and emotional support during difficult times.  

Caregivers are also trained in wandering prevention techniques so that our clients can live safely without putting themselves at risk for harm due to wandering or disorientation.   


Short Term Recovery Solutions  

Whether recovering from an illness or injury at home or transitioning from a hospital stay back into a comfortable home environment after a surgery, 24-hour home care provides peace of mind during this time of transition by ensuring that there is always someone on hand to monitor health status and provide assistance as needed. Certified nursing assistants (CNAs) are available around the clock to assist with basic activities like bathing and dressing as well as providing emotional support while recovering from an illness or surgery in the comfort of one’s own home.

Ensures Your Loved One is Fully Supported 

24-hour home care ensures that your loved one has someone there to assist them with activities throughout the day and night. This means that your loved one can continue to engage in activities like visiting friends or attending events knowing that they have someone who can provide assistance if needed. This provides them with a sense of independence while still being able to receive help when it’s needed most.  


Gives Family Members Greater Peace of Mind   

Knowing that there is always someone available to provide assistance to your loved one gives family members greater peace of mind. You don’t have to worry about who is going to be available if something unexpected happens or how long it will take for help to arrive if an emergency arises. 24-hour home care ensures that someone is always there when you need them most. With BrightStar Care's round-the-clock services, you can rest easy knowing your loved one is safe and secure in their own home.   


Allows Your Loved One More Independence

This means that they can maintain control over their daily routine and keep up with their favorite activities without having to move into an assisted living facility or nursing home. Furthermore, they will have access to all of their familiar surroundings and items—including furniture, decorations, family photos, etc.—which can provide a sense of comfort and security during this difficult time.
