This resource guide will provide you with the comfort and answers to your questions and our Care Team is available to help find a solution to help ease your family’s peace of mind.

How many caregivers should I expect during a shift? How are shifts divided?

To ensure that the client is always taken care of, two or more caregivers take turns on shifts to be awake and available day and night. With “24-hour” caregiving, there will be 2-3 caregivers who work 8-12 hour shifts in the care recipient’s home, providing around-the-clock care. This type of live-in care is more appropriate for individuals who have higher care needs.

This is very different from live-in care, where caregivers require a space of their own and truly “live” in the home, sleeping at night (but willing to be awakened, and alerted when the client needs help).
