1-on-1 Care That’s Tailored To The Needs Of The Individual

Private duty care (1:1 caregiver to client ratio) is a type of service primarily aimed at elderly individuals who need assistance with their daily activities. Private duty aides, also known as caregivers or personal care assistants, provide support in various tasks to help clients maintain their safety, comfort, and independence within their own homes.

The responsibilities of private duty aides typically include personal care tasks like toileting/incontinent care, bathing, dressing, grooming, and medication reminders. They can also help with housekeeping, such as light cleaning and organizing the living space, as well as meal preparation and assistance with feeding. Additionally, private duty aides offer companionship and emotional support, engaging in conversation and participating in activities with the client.

One of the key objectives of private duty care is to enable individuals to continue living in their own homes comfortably. By providing assistance with daily activities, private duty aides help clients maintain their independence and improve their quality of life. This type of care can also offer respite to family caregivers by giving them a break from their caregiving responsibilities, allowing them to recharge and attend to other obligations while ensuring their loved one’s needs are still met.


Live-in caregiver services are designed to provide round-the-clock support and assistance for individuals who require caregiving in their own homes. Having a caregiver present at all times can greatly enhance the safety, well-being, and quality of life for your loved ones. Here is some important information to know about live-in caregiver services.

Caregiver Rotation: With live-in care services, two caregivers are assigned that will alternate living in the home for 3-4 days at a time. This rotation ensures that there is always a caregiver present in the home, providing continuous care and support. The alternating schedule allows caregivers to have regular breaks to rest and recharge.

Care Assessment and Customized Care Plan: A staff member will visit you and your loved ones to conduct a comprehensive care assessment. This assessment helps us understand the specific care needs and preferences of your loved ones. Taking into consideration their unique requirements, we will create a personalized care plan to address their needs effectively. The assessment will also give us a better understanding to determine if the live-in caregiver option is an appropriate fit for the client.

Comprehensive Care Services: Live-in caregivers are trained and experienced in providing a wide range of care services. They can assist with personal care tasks such as bathing, dressing, grooming, and toileting. Medication reminders and assistance can also be provided to ensure your loved ones stay on track with their medications. Our caregivers can help with meal preparation, ensuring that nutritious and appetizing meals are available. They can also assist with light housekeeping tasks to maintain a clean and organized living environment.

Daily Routine and Support: Live-in caregivers will support your loved ones throughout the day and night. They will wake up with them in the morning and assist with their morning routine. Throughout the day, they will be available to provide personal assistance, companionship, and support. Caregivers can engage in activities with your loved ones, provide supervision, and ensure their safety. In the evening, they will assist with nighttime routines, such as preparing for bed and ensuring a comfortable sleep environment.

Benefits of Live-In Care: Live-in care can be particularly beneficial for individuals who have recently lost a spouse, returned from the hospital, or live alone. It provides continuous support and companionship, reducing feelings of isolation and loneliness. With a live-in caregiver, your loved ones can receive the assistance they need at any time, promoting their safety and well-being. Our caregivers are trained to provide care with respect, compassion, and dignity, ensuring your loved ones feel comfortable and valued.

Preparing for Live-In Care: To ensure that caregivers can rest and recharge, it’s important to provide them with a designated private space in the home for sleeping and storing their personal belongings. We recommend at least 5 hours of uninterrupted sleep for the caregiver each night. At the end of their 3-4 day shift, the caregiver will clean and prepare the space for the next caregiver, ensuring a smooth transition.

We understand the importance of providing consistent and reliable care for your loved one. Live-in caregiver services aim to offer the highest quality of care and support, allowing your loved ones to age in place comfortably and safely.

24-Hour Care

24-hour home care services offer a distinct advantage over live-in care by ensuring that there is always an awake caregiver present in the home to provide assistance and respond to emergencies. Two caregivers who will work in shifts of 12 hours each, taking turns to provide care for your loved one. This arrangement guarantees that there will always be an attentive caregiver available throughout the day and night.

One of the key benefits of our 24-hour home care services is that the caregivers remain awake and alert during their entire shifts. This means they are ready to provide immediate help whenever it is needed, ensuring that your loved one receives continuous support and attention. Unlike live-in care where caregivers may have their own space to sleep at night, the caregivers will not require separate sleeping quarters, allowing them to be fully present and accessible at all times.

These services are particularly beneficial for individuals with chronic conditions that require constant attention. Whether it’s managing medications, providing assistance with daily activities, or responding to emergencies, caregivers are trained to handle a wide range of situations. Their round-the-clock presence offers you and your family the ultimate peace of mind, knowing that your loved one is receiving attentive care and support at all times.

By choosing 24/7 home care services, you can ensure that your loved one receives the necessary care and assistance they need while maintaining a high level of safety and support throughout the day and night.


Hourly care services typically require a minimum of 4 to 8 hours of care per visit. This minimum duration ensures that the caregiver has sufficient time to provide the necessary assistance and support to the senior.

Senior home care agencies often request clients to commit to a regularly scheduled weekly care plan. This allows the agency to allocate a qualified and consistent caregiver for the designated hours. After the initial start-up, it is acceptable to make changes to the hours of care as the client’s true needs become apparent and better understood. Flexibility in adjusting the schedule is usually accommodated by the agency.

In cases where a regular caregiver is unable to fulfill an assigned shift, agencies may offer substitute caregivers to provide the services instead. However, some clients prefer to have their regular caregiver adjust their hours when they need time off rather than having a substitute caregiver. To ensure a smooth transition, some agencies may send care managers or field supervisors to introduce the substitute caregiver to the client. These supervisors may also provide training to the caregiver during the first visit to ensure they understand the specific needs and preferences of the client.

Overall, hourly care services offer flexibility in terms of scheduling and can be tailored to meet the changing needs of the client. The involvement of care managers or field supervisors helps to maintain continuity and quality in the care provided by the agency.

Overall, private duty care plays a crucial role in supporting elderly individuals, enhancing their well-being, and promoting their ability to age in place. It’s important to note that private duty care is not covered by Medicare, as it is considered non-medical assistance. Instead, clients typically pay for these services out-of-pocket or through long-term care insurance. The cost of private duty care can vary depending on factors such as the level of assistance required and the geographical location.
