Elderly Care in Hot Springs
At Southern Caregivers, we believe that everyone deserves to be treated with dignity and compassion. Our greatest asset is our dedicated and caring team of caregivers. All of our employees undergo rigorous screening, interviewing, and background checks before they’re hired. And after they’ve passed those challenges, we train them in the most up-to-date best practices, responsibilities, and duties required for eldercare.
We only hire team members who are motivated and passionate about quality care for the elderly, physically impaired and those affected by Alzheimer’s or Dementia. We customize our care plans to each client’s special needs and circumstances and we always treat your loved one with the same respect, dignity, and compassion that we would want for ourselves.
As specialists in senior care in Hot Springs, our caregivers travel to your loved one’s home, hospice, assisted living home, or nursing home to provide care services and living assistance so they can live comfortably and independently for as long as possible.

In-Home Senior Care in Hot Springs
We know that it is important to our clients that they remain as independent as they can for as long as possible. And this means staying in their own home for as long as possible. This is especially important for those with Alzheimer’s or dementia who need familiarity and routine to remain comfortable and lucid.
We know that we don’t just work for the well-being of our seniors but of their entire family as well. Our highly qualified staff of professionals can provide the care your loved one needs to put your mind at ease when you can’t be there. We offer services for a few hours at a time while you run errands or take some time for yourself or we can work out half-day, full-day, or even 24/7 in-home care options. We’ll work with you to determine how much and what type of care your loved one needs to be comfortable.
We assist in everyday activities, but we also sit and visit with your loved one to help stimulate them socially. Often, our clients are able to use the time we free up for them to pursue interests and activities they haven’t had time for like crafting, reading, or visiting friends.
24 Hour Home Care
24-hour in-home care can feel like a big decision, and we’re here to walk you through it every step of the way. 24-hour home care can come in a few different packages. You may have three caregivers with eight-hour shifts or two caregivers with twelve-hour shifts. If your loved one wanders at night, is prone to accidents, or has a history of leaving the house and becoming lost, you may prefer a shift of three caregivers so they’re at their most alert.
Alternatively, if your loved one suffers from Alzheimer’s or dementia, fewer shifts – and therefore fewer unfamiliar faces – may be less confusing for them. These clients often benefit from in-home care because it allows them to be surrounded by familiar spaces and objects which can calm and comfort the mind when they’re confused.
24-hour in-home care can include respite care services and care for clients transitioning home from a hospital or rehabilitation facility. We also provide services for clients with post-stroke, COPD, diabetes, or other debilitating illnesses. But most of all, we’re offering peace of mind for you – the family. You can’t take care of your loved one 24-hours a day without sacrificing your own health and happiness – and that’s not something your loved one would want.
If you’re looking for hospice in Hot Springs, we also offer 24-hour end of life care. We can help with pain management and give you time and space to rest while you care for your loved one during this draining time.
Respite Care in Hot Springs
Respite care is designed to give the current caregiver – you – a break from caring for your loved one. We know that you want to do your best for your loved one and it’s difficult to trust other people with their care. We acknowledge that we will never know them as well as you do, which is why we’re always happy to sit down with you and talk about your cares and concerns. The more we know about our clients, the better we can care for them as a whole person.
The first rule of caregiving is that you cannot take care of someone unless you are taking care of yourself first. You’re no good to your loved one if you are stressed, distracted, and exhausted from watching over them 24/7. And you would feel terrible if you fell asleep from sheer exhaustion and they hurt themselves. Let us help you help your loved one live a more comfortable, healthy life. In the process, you’ll find that you are also healthier and happier because you can go about your day-to-day life knowing that your loved one is safe and happy.
Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care in Hot Spring
We provide caregiving services for seniors with Alzheimer’s and Dementia who need extra assistance to stay in their homes. We pride ourselves on our continuing Alzheimer’s and dementia care education – our caregivers are always trained in the most up-to-date caregiving practices and requirements.
We provide in-home care for our clients suffering from Alzheimer’s or dementia, but we also offer care for clients in independent living facilities, nursing homes, hospitals, rehabilitation centers and assisted living in Hot Springs. We know that it is not always possible, or safe, for your loved one to stay in their home – especially as dementia progresses. We can help you make that transition more smoothly, and often the same caregiver who was with your loved one in their home can care for them in their new facility – which can give them a familiar face and routine in a new and confusing environment.
If you’re looking for senior care in Hot Springs, contact Southern Caregivers. Our team of compassionate, trained professionals can help you develop a care plan for your loved one that makes their life – and yours – easier and more pleasant.
