Frequently Asked Questions About Live-in & Overnight Care
What is included in live-in care?
How many hours does live-in care cover?
Though live-in care is a 24-hour service, typically the caregiver is available for 16 hours, because they are entitled to 8 hours of sleep. Caregivers need proper sleep to perform at their peak. If you need someone to be awake for 24 hours continuously, then you would be looking for 24-hour care, where multiple caregivers rotate shifts to provide support.
Can live-in care be short term and long term?
Yes! Live-in care can be used for any length of time. We understand that there are times when you need a live-in caregiver for a few days, perhaps after surgery, as well as for more permanent situations.
How can I pay for live-in care?
There are many different ways to pay for non-medical home care. If you’re interested in more information, please check out our ways to pay for home care guide.
Can live-in caregivers help in nursing facilities?
Yes, they can! Caregivers can provide support wherever your family member resides. This way your loved one receives the care they need and one-on-one attention, no matter the living situation.
What is included in overnight care?
Does live-in care include overnight care?
It depends on the care needs. A live-in caregiver can help with interruptions at night. However, if there are so many interruptions that the caregiver can’t get 5 consecutive hours of sleep, then you may need to consider adding overnight care service with another caregiver.
