3-8 Hour Care Shifts

What is 3 – 8-hour care shifts ?

Hourly home care can be provided on a daily or as needed basis. DHC caregivers assist our clients with daily activities, allowing them to maintain their normal routines. Our care team will assist with daily living activities including bathing, personal grooming, dressing, meal preparation, incontinence care, assistance with medication, transportation and much more. The benefit of hourly care is that your loved one can remain in their home with continued independence, while receiving the support necessary to maintain their health and a fulfilling lifestyle.

Aging in Place
Hourly care can be provided on a short-term basis or continual schedules, which include shifts ranging from 3 hours up to 8 hours in duration. We also can provide around the clock care with three 8-hour shifts for clients that requirea higher level of supervision. Hourly care shifts can begin with minimal hours and can progress as necessary with the increasing care needs of the client.

What is the difference between hourly and 24-hour (live-in) care? As mentioned above, hourly care is restricted to a set hourly shift. 24-hour (live-in) care is when a DHC caregiver stays at our client's home for 2 or more consecutive days (and sleeps in the home), in order to provide peace of mind when a client may want or require more accessible care.
