24-HOUR NURSING CARE

24 Hour care is around-the-clock, daytime and overnight. While each country has its own regulations, typically options for 24 hour care include: 

  • One caregiver who works a full day, with breaks, followed by eight hours rest in the client’s home, rotating every 7 days
  • Two caregivers work in twelve hour shifts. The evening caregiver stays awake through the night, rotating every 7 days

The following signs might indicate that it is time to change from hourly to 24 hour care for your older spouse, parent or friend:

  • Frequent falls or compromised balance. This can be the result of dementia, a neurological problem, or following an accident
  • Confusing day time and night time, frequently awake in the middle of the night, or agitated in the dark
  • Recent hospitalisation or stay in a rehabilitation facility after a hip fracture, stroke or heart attack
  • Fainting or confusion from dehydration
  • Difficulty eating or drinking without assistance
  • Wandering from home, by foot or vehicle, and getting lost or confused
  • Confused or frightened by short absences of family, friends or caregivers
  • New or increased bathroom accidents 
  • Leaving the stove on unattended
  • You are afraid to leave the person at night or you are not getting regular sleep because you are tending to their night time needs
