Home. It’s a safe, relaxing, welcoming place to return to… especially after a hospital stay, rehabilitation program, or other unexpected time away. But often under such circumstances, returning back home can be frightening or stressful, so Great Oak Senior Care has designed a special program to make the transition back home as easy and as comfortable as possible.
“Welcome Home” is designed to take the worry out of who will help you or your loved one make the transition back home after time spent in a hospital, rehabilitation program, or other medical facility. It assists elderly adults and their family members with non-medical transportation and transitioning following a hospital stay, outpatient surgery, rehabilitation center visit, or simply a doctor’s appointment.
Welcome Home Services Include:
The Welcome Home package consists of a five-hour initial assignment for a cost of $160.00. Our caregivers are also available for additional services after that time if requested.
Our Overnight care provides clients with care through the overnight hours (12-hours per day, seven days per week). The overnight care ensures your loved one will receive the necessary help when they need it to remain safe in their home. It is the ideal solution for loved ones who want to age in place, and will benefit from having a caregiver with them overnight. This care provides your loved one with peace of mind and safety in the overnight hours.

When you are with someone who has Alzheimer’s disease or dementia, you may notice big changes in how they act in the late afternoon or early evening. This is called sundowning, or sundown syndrome.
Sundowning is a symptom of Alzheimer’s disease and dementia that generally occurs at a specific time of the day usually in the evening. The symptoms seem to get worse as the night goes on and usually get better by morning. Sundowning may cause restlessness and may make it hard for people to fall asleep and stay in bed or they may experience agitation, frustration, irritability or confusion.
The causes of sundowning are not well understood. One possibility is that Alzheimer’s-related brain changes can affect a person’s “biological clock,” leading to confused sleep-wake cycles.
If your loved on is experiencing symptoms of Sundowning let one of our caring and compassionate caregivers help them to cope with the behaviors associated with Sundown syndrome like tiredness, agitation and frustration that your loved one may be experiencing.
