Caring for an elderly, chronically ill, or disabled family member may simply be a part of daily life, but it is a demanding role and no one is equipped to do it alone. It’s normal to need a break, that can benefit both the patient as well as the caregiver.
Our Respite Care Service provides short-term breaks that can relieve stress, restore energy, and promote balance in your life. Respite care can be for an ill or special needs adult or child, such as a child with autism or an adult with Alzheimer’s. Our services may be arranged for a weekend, a day, or even for an hour. Call us today and we will schedule respite care for you on a regular basis or just one time to give you the break you need.
We understand the challenges a family faces when a loved one is in the hospital, particularly if that individual needs constant observation and care. You want to be there every minute, but it’s just not possible. That’s why Meridian Home Care offers hospital sitting services. Our professional and trustworthy caregivers are available to sit with you or your loved one in hospitals/medical facilities, nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and residences for as long as necessary. Our staff will help the client remain calm and safe by supporting their needs as they cope with limitations such as poor eyesight, hearing loss or cognitive decline. We will assist with comfort, companionship and personal care, encourage feedings and proper hydration, take notes during medical staff visits and relay that information to the family, as well as keeping the family informed of the clients status and alerting them should a problem arise.
