24 Hour or Around the Clock Care

There may come a time when somebody close to you requires care all hours of the day and even right throughout the night. To enjoy the peace of mind that comes from reliable around the clock assistance, you can rely on the team from Better Living Homecare to provide 24 hour in home care services.

There are a number of reasons some people may require 24 hour home care, such as:

• Illness
• Dementia
• Frailty
• Highly complex personal requirements
• At high risk of falls

As a professional care operation for 30 years, Better Living Homecare has a fully trained and experienced team that can always be there for your family member through a completely customised support program. Live-in care can be costly and it is not humanly possible for any carer to work 24 hours a day. Because Better Living Homecare offers an interchangeable team of fully trained, enthusiastic staff members, they are always ready with fresh energy and able to co-ordinate shifts for round the clock reliability.

Our qualified carers can assist with a wide range of duties including:

Personal care like washing and toileting
Shopping
Meal preparation                 
Housekeeping                 
• Laundry assistance
• Medication reminders
• Emergency assistance
• General companionship day or night
• Physiotherapy exercises
• Making and keeping appointments

Another advantage of having a team available, as opposed to live-in help, is that a program can be co-ordinated to fit in with your existing family and friend support network. This way, you don’t pay for any unnecessary downtime. Even if you don’t have live-in care, relying on just one employed individual can have its inconveniences, such as sickness, holidays or a sudden inability to attend.

With Better Living Homecare, if one carer is unable to attend for any reason, we will arrange another in their place. Having a team of carers can be extra beneficial in that your family member will meet a number of friendly people which can help them feel more social, especially if they have limited mobility and don’t see lot of visitors. Better Living Homecare has a careful vetting process to ensure all of our carers have amiable, helpful personalities. We also look to match carers that are most compatible with the person requiring care.

Naturally, there are different levels of care available depending on individual requirements. For example, if an elderly patient has just come back from hospital and is at risk of relapse, you may require a staff member to be actively on call throughout the night. Or, you may simply need a staff member to sleep over as a precautionary measure. Even if your family member requires very distinctive care, Better Living Homecare can organise training specific to particular afflictions and illnesses. This is how our carers can meet the needs of any situation.
