Live-In Care VS 24 Hour Home Care
There are two types of around-the-clock care for seniors in Opelika, AL. One is live-in care and the other is 24 hour care. Live-in care involves a single caregiver staying in the home of your loved one, working on a schedule with designated breaks for eating, free time, and sleeping. The caregiver will need to be provided a sleeping space. In the event of an emergency, they can be awakened to provide aide to you senior. With 24 hour care, there are two or three caregivers working shifts of 8 – 12 hour contingent on the number of allocated caregivers.
