How will the caregiver ensure safety and 24-hour monitoring?

LifeWorx gives the option for a nurse on staff to do an assessment and she/he makes up a plan of care. This is usually not needed but it is offered.

The aides are experienced and mostly certified so they should be familiar with a variety of safety situations. If they are not, they can call the family or 911 for emergencies or can reach out to our nurse and she/he can help them with options.

Sometimes for monitoring the family will buy cameras, bells, walkie-talkies, and a variety of devices in case the caregiver is in another room whether it is sleeping, making lunch, in the bathroom, etc. if it is 12-hour shifts the aides must be alert and always awake. For one 24-hour shift, the aide should be able to rest for a minimum of 6 hours, in which case bells, etc. can come in handy.
