Although home care is typically associated with elder care in a home setting, non-medical home care agencies like A-1 Domestic Professional Services also provide one-on-one care for elders and patients in a hospital setting. Whether you or your loved one is waiting to be discharged from a hospital or will have an extended stay at the hospital, A-1 Home Care/A-1 Domestic Professional Services is committed to delivering personable care through trained, attentive hospital sitters all over Los Angeles County and Orange County.
What types of assistance can I expect from a hospital sitter?
Hospital-sitter services are very similar to home care services. The only difference is the setting. To assist your loved one in an understaffed hospital setting, our caregivers, certified nurse aides, companion aides, direct care workers and home health aides are skilled in delivering the following services:
- Bathing, grooming and hygiene
- Incontinence care
- Taking vitals
- Running errands
- Monitoring medication intake
- Assistance with mobility (range-of-motion exercise, etc.)
- Feeding assistance
- G-tube/J-tube feeding
For many family members, being there 24/7 is difficult due to work schedules or family obligations. However, hospital-sitters can help keep an eye on your loved one and ensure that he or she does not get neglected. They can also be a great help to the nurses on staff when it comes to communicating problems. A-1 Home Care/A-1 Domestic Professional Services collaborates with hospitals like Kaiser Permanente, City of Hope, Hoag Hospital, Queen of the Valley Hospital and other hospitals all over Los Angeles County and Orange County.
