They are here and taking the shrubs/bushes out...

How do I keep them alive for a week?

Is there a way to save them?

They won't be back for 1 week.

Foundation repairmen taking the shrubs/bushes out or a gardener?

if the former, adios bushes/shrubs, if the latter, they should be taken care of (if the gardener is responsible).

If the plants were carefully dug up so that there was minimal damage to the roots, I'd try replanting them in a temporary location or at least covering the roots in a soil/compost mixture that is kept damp with periodic watering, making sure there are no air pockets. When replanting, a little plant food should also help.
Damage to the finest roots will impair their recovery. Too much damage and they may not recover.
