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.

What Is 24-Hour Home Care?

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.

Is 24-Hour Care Right for Your Family Member?

24-hour care services help older adults stay safe during all hours of the day or night. Your family member might benefit from 24-hour home care services if they have a chronic illness or require daily medication reminders or overnight monitoring. An overnight caregiver 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:

  • Safety: From ensuring your family member eats well and stays hydrated to reducing the risk of falls and being available during emergencies, a 24-hour caregiver is available at all hours of the day to ensure they are safe.
  • Medication reminders: If a client needs to take medication throughout the day and night, a 24/7 caregiver can provide reminders and wake the client during the night, letting them know it’s time for their medicine.
  • Independence: If your family member wishes to remain independent, hiring a 24-hour long-term caregiver is an excellent alternative to moving them into an assisted living facility or nursing home because an around-the-clock care provider allows family members and other primary caregivers to rest from caregiving responsibilities.
