Should a caregiver do 12-hour day and night shifts or just live-in?

Overnight caregivers are in the home for 8-12 hours and are provided 5 hours of uninterrupted sleep. Overnight caregivers stay awake their entire shift to avidly supervise your loved one at night.

Live-in caregivers stay in the home day and night to perform duties outlined in the care plan. Live-in caregivers are provided a 6 to 8-hour break, a sleeping bed to rest, and a minimum of 5 hours of uninterrupted sleep.

For 24-hour care, our caregiving team rotates shifts to ensure someone is always awake and available day and night to help the client when needed at any time.
