What to Do When the Nursing Home Resists Your Efforts to Install a Granny Cam

DSCN1255You have reason to suspect that your elderly loved one isn’t getting the adequate attention and support she needs at the nursing home where she stays. You work full-time and have your own family to take care of after work.  Every time you visit, it seems like no one has changed your mom’s soiled linens in a while and when you ring the bell for service, it takes an awfully long time for a staff member to come and attend to your loved one.  The nursing home staff resists your efforts probably for privacy or legal reasons.  Instead of installing hidden cameras, why not move your elderly loved one home with you?  You can monitor your loved one 24 hours a day with the help of a live-in caregiver from A-1 Home Care in Downey.

Try 24-Hour Senior In-Home Care for a Peace of Mind

When you weigh the pros and cons of in-home care vs. nursing home care, the pros of in-home care far outweigh the pros of a residential care facility.  You get the following benefits:

  • Immediate, undivided attention from a compassionate 24-hour caregiver
  • No need to share your caregiver with other residents
  • Get treated like a king or queen in the comfort of your own home
  • Meal preparation, laundry and light housekeeping services for your elderly loved one and the whole family
  • Help with transportation (e.g., rides to doctor appointments, pick-ups/drop-offs for the kids at school, etc.)
  • Mobility assistance
  • Overnight assistance with incontinence
  • Behavioral management for seniors with Alzheimer’s, dementia, etc.
  • Patient lifting/transferring assistance
  • Medication reminders

A-1 Home Care’s certified nurse assistants and licensed vocational nurses will care for your loved ones as though they were their own family members.  You get the advantage of developing a relationship with your elderly loved one’s caregiver and you have 24-hour support from the home care agency when you dial our office number.
