What is 24-Hour Care?
As opposed to a live-in that is available for companionship and a live-in helper has their own room and is provided all meals, our 24-hour care service provides a team of compassionate and care professionals that show up at designated shifts throughout the 24-hour day.
What this means is that your loved one will never be alone and that they will have the care that they need whenever they need it, every minute of the day and night. You will have access to care notes and developments each shift and can be confident that professionals are managing the schedule as well as care needs.
