The 10-Benefits of 24-Hour Home Care

By Jessica Deng

How do you know when to increase your loved one’s care plan to around-the-clock care? Seniors living with chronic health conditions or physical and emotional limitations may need around-the-clock care at home.Whether your loved one lives in their own home or with a family member, it may be time to start full-time care for everyone’s benefit. 24-hour live-in care means a caregiver will move in and live with your loved one and care for them around the clock. The caregiver will be able to help with all activities and provide company throughout the day. A caregiver can provide transportation to and from appointments and social events, helping your loved one to stay active and get out of the house.

LifeWorx provides 24-hour home care options with you and your family in mind. We believe that a complete understanding of the around-the-clock care options available is essential to family members. Here are 10 benefits of choosing 24-hour home care:

  • 24/7 Support
    • The most apparent benefit to 24-hour home care is that it’s 24 hours. Having someone in the home means prompt and attentive care, day or night.
  • Peace of Mind for you and your family
    • By hiring a personal caregiver to take care of your loved one all day every day, you are doing more than guaranteeing them the best possible care. Knowing a loved one is not alone and has the attention of a trained caregiver always offers peace of mind to the family.
  • Enhanced Independence
    • Receiving 24-hour care does not mean the care recipient loses their independence.  With 24-hour home care, the care recipient can remain in the comfort of their own home while still receiving the personalized care they need.
  • Personalized Care
    • Providing care is a very personal issue. 24-hour care services will mean that the caregiver’s number one priority is your loved one. An individual, especially an older adult will require one-on-one care to achieve their ultimate comfort and well-being. 
  • Safety and Security
    • For those whose senior loved ones live alone and are concerned with their safety, a 24-hour caregiver can help them feel safe and secure. The caregiver acts are your eyes and ears to monitor and protect your loved one.
  • Companionship for Seniors
    • Loneliness is a common problem for seniors. Loneliness can lead to depression, memory loss, socialization issues, and mental health problems. A 24-hour caregiver can be the perfect companion for your loved one because that caregiver can provide company and is trained in senior care and well-being.
  • Maintaining a social network is easier with 24-hour care at home
    • Many seniors fear losing touch with their families and friends. With around-the-clock home care, your loved one can continue to have regular contact with their relatives and acquaintances. This helps them to stay connected and improve overall happiness and well-being.
  • Familiar Surroundings
    • Change can be positive, but a lot of the changes that face older people are negative. 24-hour home care means your loved one can stay at home, in familiar surroundings. This is important when it comes to maintaining a solid sense of identity and self.
  • Respite for Families
    • Many family caregivers can become overwhelmed when supporting an elderly loved one and may benefit from respite care. A 24-hour caregiver can provide families a brief break by offering a helping hand with household responsibilities. The senior continues to receive high-quality care without interruption and the family caregiver enjoys a much-needed break.
  • A specialist is available during emergencies
    • An accident is one of the most significant risks at home for an older adult. Caregivers providing 24-hour senior home care will assist with a senior moving about their home and significantly reducing this risk. If necessary, caregivers can call 911 or take to summon further help from healthcare experts.
