The Benefits of 24/7 Care at Home
24-hour home care provides:
Constant supervision – With a caregiver on site, your loved one is never left alone. We can respond to needs, even through the night.
Increased safety – Round-the-clock assistance prevents falls or injuries and ensures medications are properly administered.
Personalized care – Schedules and services are tailored to your loved one’s unique requirements. Their well-being is the priority.
Family peace of mind – You can focus on work and other responsibilities knowing your loved one has dedicated care.
Having round-the-clock support available allows your family member to remain at home rather than move to a care facility – a comforting and familiar environment.
Deciding Between Part-Time vs Full-Time Care
What’s the Right Amount of In-Home Support?
Many families start by utilizing part-time, hourly caregivers for basic assistance and transition to full-time live-in care as needs increase. Here are some factors to consider
Part-Time Home Care
- Great for intermittent help – Such as a few hours per day or certain days each week.
- More affordable option – Allows you to spread care hours throughout the week.
- Provides essential assistance – Help with bathing, meals, light housekeeping and more.
Full-Time and 24/7 Home Care
- Ideal for round-the-clock needs – If your loved one requires extensive, hands-on care.
- Delivers continuous care – With a dedicated caregiver on site providing constant support.
- Allows aging at home – Provides the higher level of care needed to remain home vs. in a facility.
Our care coordinators can help determine the right care schedule for your unique situation. Needs often change over time, so we regularly reassess.
Ensuring Safety and Security At Night
Why Some Overnight Caregivers Must Stay Awake
Providing quality care around the clock means having awake and alert caregivers on duty, even overnight. This level of service ensures your loved one’s safety and wellbeing when they are most vulnerable.
Overnight Caregivers Can Respond Quickly To:
- Requests for assistance getting in or out of bed to use the restroom
- Discomfort or pain that disrupts sleep
- Confusion, anxiety or agitation resulting from dementia or Alzheimer’s
- Falls, which frequently occur during middle-of-the-night trips to the bathroom
- Administering medications, oxygen or nebulizer treatments
- Monitoring vital signs and any changes in health condition
With an awake caregiver on site, your loved one has someone ready to assist them with any needs that arise. This brings security and avoids delays in emergency response.

Maintaining Independence and Wellbeing
How We Empower Seniors in Their Care
The ability to perform daily tasks independently and maintain a sense of purpose is so important for seniors receiving home care services. Our caregivers are trained to provide assistance while encouraging independence when possible.
We get to know our clients’ capabilities and preferred level of involvement in their own care. Some ways we empower independence:
- Provide standby assistance and encouragement with dressing, bathing, meals
- Use verbal cues and gestures versus taking over tasks entirely
- Allow clients to still participate in hobbies like cooking, gardening
- Facilitate activities tailored to individuals’ skills and interests
Supporting Emotional Wellbeing
In addition to helping with physical daily living activities, our caregivers provide companionship and fun engagement that contributes to seniors’ emotional health.
- Conversation and active listening shows clients they are valued
- Include clients in activities that match their abilities
- Encourage social interactions through visits from loved ones, community events
- Assist with tasks that provide a sense of purpose like paying bills
