Bedside Manners sitters offer the encouragement and support to make hospital and homebound environments more pleasant and safe for patients and their families.

When patients are left alone, the experience can elevate feelings of loneliness, depression, worry, and fear, affecting not just their emotional and mental states, but impacting their physical health and wellbeing. Having a caring person by your side can make a difficult experience more tolerable and reduce the risks that come from being left unattended, especially when patients struggle with being able to speak or care for themselves, or might injure themselves or others.

“When a loved one is in the hospital you want to be there with them, but that isn’t always possible. If you live far away, work full time, or have other family to care for, it may be difficult for you to get to the hospital. Let BSM help by providing caregivers to attend to your loved one.”
