Who can receive 24-hour home care?

People of any age can require 24-hour home care. The need for 24-hour home care may be temporary or ongoing. However, there are three general conditions that most often result in the need for 24-hour home care.

  • Temporary health-related conditions/recovery
    A person may receive 24-hour home care while recovering from a traumatic injury or surgery. Having consistent in-home care help is more likely to speed the recovery of an injury or recovery post-surgery as the individual won’t have a chance to risk a physical setback or further injury.
  • Chronic health-related conditions
    Chronic conditions remain stable or slowly get worse over time. Examples of chronic conditions include paralysis resulting from a spinal cord injury, Parkinson’s disease, or frailty associated with old age.
  • Terminal conditions
    Terminal conditions are life-threatening illnesses or injuries that are expected to result in death. For most people who are terminally ill, 24-hour home care is often needed, even if it’s only for a short time.
