Sometimes clients returning home following a major operation may require 24/7 live-in care for a short time to assist in their recovery.
When clients require a high level of care on a 1:1 basis over 24 hours, carers are on active duty for 24 hours each day. Three carers cover 24 hours on rotational 8-hour shifts. Rates for this service are charged on an hourly basis.
The carer is provided with a bed and is on hand if requested – but can generally expect to get a reasonable night’s sleep, providing reassurance to relieve the anxiety of being alone at night.
The carer is awake and “on duty” throughout the night.
