24-Hour Home Care

Visiting Angels
Fort Smith, AR

When you or someone you love needs continuous, around-the-clock care, you have more choices than in an assisted living facility. Visiting Angels offers 24-hour home care services in the Fort Smith, AR local area. A professional caregiver from Visiting Angels can allow older adults to stay in familiar surroundings and routines while receiving the help they need, night and day.

Is 24-Hour Home Care Right For Me?

24-Hour home care is a good choice for those who require full-time care or continuous monitoring, and also wish to stay in the comfort of their own home. Our caregivers provide comprehensive services and are awake and ready to provide care at all hours of the day and night.

24-Hour care is different from having live-in caregivers; both can be appropriate, depending on the concern.

24-Hour care gives a higher level of care, designed for situations where there needs to always be a care provider that is alert and on call. A shift rotation schedule assures that your caregiver is always ready, whereas a live-in provider will require time when they are not available so that they may rest.

Improved Quality of Life

In-home care reduces stress by eliminating the need to move to a care facility, by reducing the load on family caregivers who may be feeling overwhelmed and by providing a smooth daily routine and proper care for chronic conditions. Our clients and their families often experience a large improvement in quality of life.

Independence and Connectedness

Everyone hopes and deserves to retain a sense of dignity and independence; this can be one of the most challenging parts of aging and disease. Visiting Angels of Fort Smith, AR trains our in-home caregivers to create an environment that supports autonomy to the greatest possible degree. This can feel very empowering to seniors at a vulnerable time in their lives.

In contrast to independence, our clients also sometimes suffer from a sense of isolation and are in need of companionship. 24-hour caregivers provide compassionate and engaging company for our clients. This fosters a sense of connectedness which often spills over into improved relationships with friends and family.

Respite for Family Caregivers

Caregiver burnout is common when a family member requires 24/7 care and supervision. Family caregivers are typically balancing careers, parenting, and other life needs while they are attempting to give their best to an aging parent or loved one. Feeling overwhelmed is natural and common. Oftentimes, it's just too much to handle.

Visiting Angels 24-hour home care is a good option to take the load off of the family, giving them a much-needed break and allowing them to attend to a full range of responsibilities.

Activities of Daily Living

When it becomes hard to keep up with basic daily tasks, everything gets harder, and physical and mental health suffers. An important part of senior care is to be sure that all the everyday tasks are handled – even in the middle of the night. Our clients experience relief from overwhelming responsibilities, which can restore the ability to enjoy hobbies and other pursuits, as well as peace of mind.


Knowing that one of our compassionate caregivers is always on hand in case of a need gives our clients and their loved ones confidence and peace of mind. Whether it's a simple need like a midnight trip to the bathroom that would be dangerous or impossible without help, more complex disease care, or attendance in case of emergency, knowing that direct supervision and around-the-clock support makes a world of difference.

Our clients and their loved ones enjoy peace of mind knowing that a dedicated caregiver is always on hand, ready to provide attentive care for everyday and nighttime needs. Knowing that necessary support is always on hand, ready and able in case of emergency, helps everyone sleep a little better at night.

When Do We Need 24-Hour In-Home Care?

There are many situations that make 24-hour home care a solid choice.

Dementia and Cognitive Issues

A decline in cognitive function, confusion, wandering, agitation, and memory loss require 24-hour attention as a matter of safety. Alzheimer's Disease and dementia can cause patients to be especially agitated and more likely to roam during the evening hours. Around-the-clock care in the comfort of their home is the best possible arrangement.

Mobility Impairment

Parkinson's Disease, stroke, MS, and other conditions can make simple movement and basic hygiene difficult, or even impossible. There can also be a substantial risk for falls.

When essential daily activities are compromised, and there is a safety concern for falls, 24-hour monitoring and assistance is required. This is both for the safety and comfort of the patient, as well as to give family caregivers some much-needed rest.

Caregivers Unable to Keep Up

If a high level of constant care is needed, usually a family cannot maintain this type of care for an extended period of time. Suffering burnout and compromising other important areas of life becomes unavoidable. It is essential to accept when help is needed and admirable to seek out a solution that works for everyone. We'd love to be that solution for you.
