Hourly Care generally starts with 4 hours of in-home care per visit. Visits may start from one day
week to seven days a week. We are willing to begin service with one visit per week, knowing
that seniors are often resistant to start care and being afraid of the unknown. Typically, a senior
who is resistant to care will be open to more hours of service once they recognize the benefits of
the companionship and the caregiver’s ability to assist the client with care. Hourly caregivers
usually work 4 to 12 hour shifts.
During the hourly shift the caregiver must
- Remain awake and alert to meet the care needs of the client.
- Clients may request hourly service from 4 hours a day
to 24 hours a day. Often clients are asked to commit to a regularly weekly schedule, to provide a
qualified and consistent caregiver.
- It is acceptable to change the hours after the initial start-up, as often the care needs are exposed.
- The nurse will provide an individualize plan of care promoting positive patient outcomes and decreasing hospitalizations.
24 Hourly Coverage
24 – hours, hourly coverage will require 2 to 3 caregivers a day. There is no sleeping break given
to a caregiver during the caregiver’s shift. However, you can allow the overnight caregiver to
sleep. 24 – hour care is billed at an hourly rate. If you choose to allow the night caregiver to sleep
during the shift you will be billed a flat rate for the sleeping shift. You will billed be an hourly
rate for a non-sleeping shift during the night. Overtime will be billed for any caregiver working
over 40 hours a week.
