24 Hour Live In Care

When nursing care requires around the clock assistance, our carers are there for you.

24 hour Live-In Care: What Is it?

If around-the-clock 24-hour care is needed, you have the option of live-in care to ensure a caregiver will be there throughout the day and night. The service is a great alternative to assisted living as they allow clients to receive 24/7 care while allowing them to stay in the comfort of their home. But how do you know which one to choose?

Although live-in care and 24 hour home care may differ slightly by location, below is a general summary including the advantages and disadvantages of both.

Live-in Care

With live-in care, one caregiver is booked daily for a 24 hour period. One caregiver can be booked for a maximum of four to five days per week depending on the location. For the other days, a different caregiver will be booked. In the 24 hour period, a 4-hour break is given to the daytime caregiver. You can decide if you want coverage for these 4 hours or not. For a live-in shift, the caregiver is allowed an 8-hour sleeping break and a sleeping bed must be provided for this caregiver. Live-in care is billed at a flat rate per day and if the 4-hour break coverage is requested then the break is billed at an hourly rate.

Pros:

The biggest advantage of having live-in care is that the number of caregivers is significantly reduced with ideally two scheduled caregivers for the whole week. This provides continuity of care and gives clients a chance to build relationships with their caregivers.
