Many adults choose to have an aging family member move in with them. This can be helpful to seniors because it provides them with someone who can help with cooking, cleaning, laundry, and possibly other daily tasks, such as bathing, dressing, and toileting.
Many family caregivers have other obligations, such as jobs and families of their own. Sometime the demands of a job or a social event require a caregiver to travel for a short period of time. That can make it difficult to know what to do about an older family member who still needs care.
Short-Term 24-Hour Care for Seniors in CT
If you take care of an elderly loved one and you need to travel because of a business trip, a friend’s wedding in another state, or because you are planning a much-needed vacation, you can hire a caregiver to stay with your relative 24 hours a day on a short-term basis. That way you can go away knowing that your loved one is in good hands.

A caregiver can engage your loved one in pleasant conversation and take him or her on walks or trips to visit other family members and friends while you are away.
