What is 24 Hour Live-in Care?

Needing more support doesn’t have to mean leaving home. You might be be helping mom or dad in their home and things have reached a point where they need more constant assistance. Or maybe you or a family member is having surgery and would rather recover at home. Live-in home care means that a caregiver lives in your home to help with anything from spontaneous needs to planned outings.

If you are a family caregiver, you know that a poor night’s rest can affect your health. Live-in caregivers are entitled to 8 hours of sleep, so you might choose 24-hour care if you need a caregiver to be awake at all times. 24-hour care means that several caregivers rotate shifts so that someone is always awake and alert to help your loved one.

Overnight and 24 Hour Live-in Home Care Basics

If you haven’t heard of live-in care before, here are the basic rules: the caregiver can live in the home as long as there is a separate bedroom and storage space for their belongings. Many live-in caregivers drive and can accompany your loved one to appointments or go grocery shopping. If you prefer, a caregiver can drive your car or their own.
