24-hour home care provides around-the-clock support for those with complex care needs in the comfort of their own homes. When care from a single carer isn’t enough to meet your needs, 24-hour care from a rotation of carers can make sure that you are looked after day and night. Curam’s experienced carers provide specialist 24-hour support throughout the UK.
Our 24-hour carers support each individual to live comfortably at home and give them and their loved ones peace of mind.
Like live-in carers, 24-hour carers can support you in numerous ways:
Your choice of carers will work on rotation and provide around-the-clock care. They’ll be on hand to cater to your needs and keep you comfortable and independent. 24-hour carers will work in shifts with other carers so that you are never without assistance.
24-hour carers provide overnight care and are available to assist with toilet breaks, changing position in bed following an injury and administering medication. Their presence can also provide peace of mind through the night if you live alone.
If you are only interested in having a carer present at night, rather than 24-hour live-in care, you can read more about overnight care.
24-hour home care is a convenient and more comfortable alternative to a care home, allowing you to remain in the comfort of your own home while providing the security of always having a carer on hand.
Curam carers provide great continuity of care – and our website allows you to choose exactly who will be caring for you.
Anyone who requires care can have 24-hour home care. This type of care is a popular choice for those who wish to remain in their own home and stay independent while receiving the support and care that they need.
24-hour care is particularly useful for those who have complex care needs that require one-on-one attention, including those with progressive conditions such as multiple sclerosis (MS), Huntington's disease, Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease and dementia.
If you are recovering from a serious illness or injury, 24-hour care may be necessary to monitor your condition, prevent further accidents and provide aid in the event of an emergency. If you are seeking a live-in carer but don’t require 24-hour care, you might consider standard live-in care.
While a care home might be right for you, 24-hour home carers can support you in numerous ways that care homes cannot:
Enable you to remain living comfortably in your own home
Maintain your privacy and existing schedule
Help you to keep in contact with your family, friends and community
Provide focused one-on-one care
Keep you close to, and help care for, your pets
There are also tangible physical and mental health benefits to live-in care. Being able to maintain your social network and keep up with your favourite hobbies while being cared for is great for your mental well-being. Physical health benefits include reducing the risk of falling and the likelihood of being housebound.
24-hour carers will fulfil the tasks agreed to in their service agreement. These tasks can range from personal care to domestic tasks and chores including shopping, laundry, meal preparation and transport.
24-hour care for those with dementia and progressive disorders
24-hour palliative care for those with cancer and other diseases
The personal care provided by 24-hour home carers can be tailored to include whatever level of assistance you need. A 24-hour carer is there to meet your needs, however personal or complex.
Responsibilities of a carer will vary according to your needs but typically will include:
