Night-Time Assistance & 24-Hour Care

While live-in caregivers are entitled to a full night’s rest, arrangements for 24-hour care can be made if the senior’s needs are more demanding. This is particularly relevant for those who may require assistance at night or are prone to wandering or confusion. In such cases, a rotation of caregivers works in shifts to ensure that someone is always awake and available to assist the senior.

At Promyse Home Care, caregivers are meticulously screened for their training, knowledge, experience, and, importantly, their compassion and dedication to care. This ensures that the caregiver assigned to your loved one is not only qualified and professional but also a good match for their needs and preferences.

Customization is key in live-in care, and services can include a range of tasks such as light housekeeping, meal planning and preparation, grocery shopping, laundry, changing bed linens, watering plants, medication reminders, accompanying to appointments, and even pet care. This level of customization ensures that each senior’s unique needs and preferences are met, contributing to a higher quality of life and well-being.
