Overnight/Live In Care

Five Reasons to Hire Overnight Senior Care for Your Loved Ones

All across Canada, Just Like Family has trained franchisees to provide caring, quality service to those who need it most. We understand that you can not be there 24/7 for your loved ones which is why we started our business: to help families and be there in times when you can’t. We believe everyone should be cared for on a personal level because every person is special in their own way. Each of our clients has unique needs, traditions, and habits that we work to learn to provide a personal, one-on-one service all over Canada. We bring the caring support to your home so you can rest easy knowing your loved ones are safe and in good hands.

Our caregivers provide our clients with a safe, calm atmosphere where they can feel relaxed and “just like family” is with them. Whether limited care is needed, overnight care or even full time, live in care, Just Like Family is here to help and provide quality senior care for you and your loved ones. We help you take care of your loved ones so you can enjoy just being there and making memories that will last a lifetime. 

If you aren’t sure if in-home senior care is right for you or your family, we have put together a few reasons why we believe in-home senior care is a great option for most families. We understand in-home care isn’t for everyone, but if it is an option for your family, we hope you’ll consider it after reading our thoughts below.

Here are five reasons we believe in-home senior care is so important for your loved ones.

  1. Schedule Consistency
    It is so comforting for anyone to have a consistent schedule and routine. Our caregivers learn the habits, routine, likes, and dislikes of our clients so that they can feel right at home and rest easy each night. We will never replace a family member, but we can help make it feel as if we are part of the family while we’re there.
  2. Home Familiarity
    Getting to see the same person every night or even once a week brings a familiarity to our clients to help them feel calm and secure. Seeing the same face over and over and knowing your loved ones are well taken care of will help you and them sleep better at night. It also makes it easier for families to visit any time of the day, and our clients are able to keep all of their personal items with them which is not always the case in a nursing home or assisted living.
  3. Better Safety
    Having a knowledgeable caregiver staying with your loved ones overnight will help them feel safe and can protect them from potential mishaps in the night. Falling down, trouble seeing or just taking the proper amount of necessary medicines are all possible risks for seniors that are home alone without supervised care. Our caregivers stay overnight so your loved ones are not alone and are there to help prevent and be there for possible mishaps.
  4. Less Financially
    It is generally much cheaper for families to have in-home care than to have their loved ones in a nursing home. Financially, overnight senior care is generally more affordable and cost effective long-term, and our clients are able to remain in a familiar place that they love.
  5. Specialty Care
    Our caregivers provide a wide variety of services and have been trained in many different areas from home care, overnight care, supervision, experts in Alzheimer’s and Dementia. 

As you can see, there are so many wonderful reasons in-home senior care has become the most popular way to care for a loved one. From every angle, in-home care is the best option for families whether you’re choosing from full-time care in a facility or in-home care. Whenever possible, in-home care is generally the better option for your loved ones because of the benefits and freedom it provides.

I tried several home care companies before but I wasn’t happy with them sending different caregivers all the time…Just Like Family has offered me the stability and consistency I needed for my dad to stay at home safe.

What I like about Just Like Family’s Caregivers is that they are very caring and dependable so I trust them with my life.

Christine C. Langley

The connection my parents have with their Caregiver is that of a close friend, not an employee that provides a service, so they can’t wait for the days when she visits them.
