ONE-ON-ONE HOSPITAL SITTER / FACILITY COMPANION
Hospital Sitters and Facility Companions can play a vital role in helping your elderly or senior family member recover and be discharged home from the hospital sooner.
By providing one-on-one care, they provide needed encouragement, companionship, distraction from negative thoughts and motivation when you can’t be at their bedside.
Anxiety and stress diminish strength and energy needed to heal. Having a Hospital Sitter or Facility Companion to provide comfort and emotional support will make a hospital or nursing home stay more pleasant.
The extra attention and support ensures your family member will return home faster and stronger.
AGE RELATED HEALTH CONDITIONS

Common Age Related Health Issues:
- Hip, Knee or Joint Replacement Surgery
- Diabetic Complications
- Heart Disease
- Stroke or Heart Attack
- Broken Bones Due to Falls
- Poor Nutrition

While Assisted Living Communities do employ personal care aides, there are dozens, if not hundreds, of seniors that require additional assistance and support. Assisted Living and Skilled Nursing Facilities are understaffed and overworked and cannot provide one-on-one care to every resident. Your loved one will have their needs scheduled along with all the other residents needing assistance.
They won’t be able to start their day when they want or follow their own daily routines. This can be very frustrating for someone who is used to being independent.
All care providers are carefully screened, providing you with quality assistance and peace of mind.
