What are the benefits and drawbacks of 24-hour home care?

Some benefits of 24-hour home care include:

  • Staying in their home
    This is the ideal solution for loved ones who want to age in place and benefit from having a caregiver with them to ensure their safety while bringing peace of mind to them and their family members.
  • Security
    From long-term health problems to dementia, some aging adults have illnesses that put them at risk for falls, wandering or forgetfulness. Having a 24/7 plan of care can give you the peace of mind to know that your senior is always safe.
  • Socialization/Activities
    Some aging adults have a hard time doing the things they love without assistance. An in-home caregiver can assist your senior to live a life they love by helping with activities and socialization.
  • Giving the family caregiver a break
    We know you love your senior family member, but you don’t have to do everything by yourself.

Some drawbacks of 24-Hour Home Care include:

  • Cost
    At some point, you may not be able to sustain the cost of 24-hour care.
  • Medical needs
    Care for your loved one may start well enough, but in time the complexity of their medical problems might exceed what the personal care agency can provide.
  • Caregiver manager
    Turnover in the caregiver industry is very high. On a practical level, this means you might find a caregiver you like, and then they leave the agency. There is also the problem of inconsistent care throughout the week due to multiple caregivers coming in.
