- Increase in Fall Risk

About Live-In Care
About Overnight Care
An alternative to Live-In Care is Overnight Care. This option can be used if your loved one is relatively alert and able during the day, possibly receiving visits and help from family members and friends. Nighttime presents dangers for many seniors due to an increased risk of falling, wandering, anxiety, etc. The Overnight Care option is generally used to have someone present if assistance is needed throughout the night. This allows family and friends to rest and be ready to care for their loved one during the day.
Constant Companions will provide a free assessment of needs and provide you with a fully vetted caregiver of your liking. In addition, we will continuously monitor the care provided and offer guidance and solutions to scenarios and conditions that may present themselves along the way.
Our Live-In and Overnight caregivers will be there to provide supervision, companionship and all personal care services including:
- Bathing/Dressing Assistance
- Grooming Assistance
- Toileting/Incontinence Care
