Facility Sitter Care

Servicing San Diego, CA

We’re Here to Brighten Your Life!


When your loved one is in the hospital or nursing home, you want to be there every minute, but you simply can’t.

We know the difficulties that you face when you have a loved one in the hospital or nursing home. You want to provide the elements of a well-supported facility stay: safety, company and comfort. You long for peace of mind that someone is watching your loved one when you’re not. Facility personnel may be short-handed so the need to supplement the care that they provide has been widely recognized.

How can Safe Harbor help?

We have facility sitters who can constantly monitor your loved one’s condition. They are patient advocates, an invaluable resource who can fulfill patients’ personal needs where nursing staff can’t.

What does a hospital sitter do?

A facility sitter is a specialized caregiver who provides companionship, observation and care for as long as necessary.


Keeping the patient in constant eye contact during entire assigned shift


Supervising the patient through the night


Monitoring patient’s condition and activity


Alert facility staff at the first sign of a concern


Seeking assistance from facility staff as needed


Recording doctor visits and procedures done


Maintaining emergency contact information and important legal documents


Engaging patient through conversation, reading, games, etc.


Assisting with feeding and personal hygiene


Offering medication reminders and post-surgery precautions


Supporting patient’s comfort level


Follows emergency procedures in the event of any incident, e.g. accident, injury, or significant change in patient’s condition


Reporting any changes in patient’s mental or physical condition, as well as suspicion of ingesting questionable substances, or items brought to the room by visitors to the staff nurse

A facility sitter does not give medications or insert IVs and must not interfere with the facility staff; they provide vigilance that can reduce the risk of infection and falls, and the personal touch that allows the patient’s energy to be directed toward healing.

Home care after hospitalization

In addition to this, a facility sitter care service provides at home care after hospitalization. This provides your loved one with help with daily tasks, making doctor appointments, meal preparation and many other basic day-to-day tasks. This will help take the burden off of you and help you rest easy knowing that your loved one is receiving the best possible help and care in their recovery.
