Hospital Sitting and Companionship Services with ameriCARE in Northern Virginia


Our caregivers are trained and ready to help our clients have better hospital stays and better experiences at medical appointments. Many times, staying at a hospital or visiting the doctor can feel overwhelming to our clients – they are out of their comfort zone and often, are receiving a lot of important information. But having an in-home caregiver present during those times not only offers an extra set of eyes and ears but provides much-needed companionship and support during a potentially stressful time. Our hospital stay support services do not replace hospital care, but rather, complement those medical services to ensure a more comfortable and stress-free experience.

Our hospital stay support services include:

limiting the risk of READMISSION and improving RECOVERY

Short and long-term stays at hospitals and rehabilitation centers often come with detailed discharge instructions specially designed to help patients heal. It’s crucial to follow these instructions as closely as possible to prevent setbacks or readmission. Our skilled caregivers can help with this transition by being present during the hospital or rehabilitation stay and by supporting our client during discharge. When our caregivers are present during the discharge period, they can hear directly from the doctor what needs to occur and when. Our caregivers can take notes, share this information in our Family Room, and help ensure our clients follow any directions as necessary.
