24-Hour Care Services in Lexington, MA
Minute Women Home Care provides home health care services that help improve the quality of life for seniors and their family caregivers. We are committed to empowering seniors in a way that allows them to continue living independently in their own homes for as long as possible. When seniors require care most hours of the day and night, our 24-hour care program provides family caregivers with the peace of mind that their family member is safe, even in the hours they cannot be there for their loved one.
Why Choose 24-Hour Care?
Our 24-hour care program is tailored to assist seniors who require around-the-clock assistance. This option is ideal for anyone in need of regular care both day and night, such as those with dementia, those who don’t sleep well, wander, or have a high risk of falling.
As a caregiver, it’s difficult to balance family and career responsibilities in addition to caring for an aging loved one. It is simply not possible to be there for everyone in your life at all hours of the day. That’s where we can help: with 24-hour care, our caregivers are available to assist and care for your senior family member around-the-clock, so you never have to worry about leaving him or her home alone.
Live-In Care or 24-Hour Care?
While live-in care and 24-hour care are similar, there are a few significant differences between the two:
How it works: One caregiver is booked for 24-hour periods for as many as five days in a row. A second caregiver is then booked for the remaining days. Depending on the service and location, caregivers are required an eight-hour sleep break.
Who it’s for: Live-in care is ideal for families who would like around-the-clock assistance in case of emergencies but can allow their aide sleep at night in a private bedroom. This schedule allows for more consistency in caregivers as seniors work with the same 2 caregivers each week. Live-in care is perfect for anyone looking for the lowest cost with maximum coverage.
How it works: 24-hour care consists of two 12-hour shifts per day, providing seniors with awake and alert caregivers at all hours. Two caregivers are booked for 12-hour shifts throughout the day. While you will always have someone looking after your loved one, the assigned caregivers may vary throughout the week.
Who it’s for: This is a great option for seniors who need constant assistance at all hours of the day and night. It is also for those who are okay working with multiple caregivers per week.
Minute Women Home Care provides both 24-hour care and live-in care. Not sure which option is right for you? Our skilled and compassionate care coordinators are always happy to help you figure out the best solution for your family. Contact us anytime to learn more about our services!
