Maintaining independence is crucial for many older adults. However, your family member’s wish to age in place might cause you anxiety — especially if they require a higher level of care or around-the-clock support.
At Corewood Care, we understand there’s no greater joy than knowing your family member is safe and well cared for. That’s why our home care providers care for our clients like they’re our family. We believe that aging gracefully at home is possible with the proper support, so we offer 24-hour home care services to older adults near Bethesda, Maryland, Tysons, Virginia and the District of Columbia.

Live-in care involves the caregiver living on-site for the 24-hour shift they complete. A requirement for live-in care is providing a bed or bedroom for the caregiver. During their shift, they will sleep in the space allocated for them. With live-in care, caregivers have two mandatory breaks during each shift, an eight-hour sleep break and a four-hour break during the day. Often, live-in care schedules one caregiver on a four- to five-day basis. While the caregiver is on a break, there’s a chance for the client to go unsupervised.
With 24/7 care, there is a bit more flexibility for caregivers. Several caregivers may support the same client over 24 hours with shifts between eight and 12 hours each. When clients have more than one caregiver, they have the reassurance that their caregiver is alert during their shift and will administer attentive care. Caregivers who provide 24/7 in-home care support don’t receive sleep breaks during their shift, so whoever works the night shift is awake, alert and readily available to respond to emergencies.

24-hour care services help older adults stay safe during all hours of the day or night.

Around-the-clock care is especially beneficial for those with mobility issues or vision impairments and anyone who needs assistance with activities of daily living or household tasks like meal preparation and light housekeeping.
However, 24/7 care services also give you the peace of mind that they are being looked after at all times, even when you can’t be there. Some of this service’s unique benefits are:
