With live-in care 2 Carers will work on a 7 day rotational basis. In a typical day the Carer will be on duty from 6am to 9pm, and on call for the rest of the night. Meals and accomodation for the Carer must be provided.
Our 24 hour care consists of 4 Carers, 2 rotating day shift and 2 rotating night shift. Shifts are 12 hours, typically 7 to 7. The benefit of 24-hour care is that the Carer is with the patient at all times and will be awake throughout the night, attending to the patient.
