The 24/7 home care

Having trusted and reliable Care Workers available 24/7 provides peace of mind for families and individuals knowing that their support needs, safety and companionship are all provided for. 24/7 in-home care is ideal for those with conditions such as frailty syndrome, mid to late-stage dementia and advanced illness.

Home Care Assistance South East Melbourne provides assurance to families who always want their loved ones to have the best care and understand that self-care in the form of a helping hand and a good night’s sleep can enhance everyone’s life.

Why choose 24 hour home care?

24-hour care allows your loved one to remain in their preferred place of residence – their own home and receive comprehensive and surprisingly cost-effective care. A personalised approach tailored to the needs of each individual through Home Care Assistance South East Melbourne will provide safety, optimal wellbeing and far exceed the support provided in a facility.

We have seen how the emotional strain associated with moving away from the familiarity and comfort of home can lead to physical decline, further loss of independence and diminished quality of life. This is avoided with 24-hour in-home care, our Care Workers ensure that the support and care provided is also tailored to the status, conditions, preferences, hobbies and lifestyle of the individual.

Benefits of 24/7 Home Care

  • Provides familiarity and calm for those who may have lost their sense of time and place
  • Provides compassionate companionship, especially at moments of greatest anxiety
  • Ensures medication routines are upheld through day and night, and all personal and medical needs are met regardless of time of day.
  • A 24-hour care regimen reduces the risk of skin infections and incidence of urinary tract infections.
  • Supports mobility needs around the clock to minimise risk of falls when getting in and out of bed or moving around the home.

How does 24-hour care work?

As an individual’s needs evolve, our Care Team will work with you to increase the service hours provided, working up to a full 24 hours. Once 24-hour support is needed, there are different ways in which it can be structured:
  • One Care Worker: each day works a full 16-hour shift with breaks, followed by 8 hours in-home sleep.

  • Two Care Workers each day: alternate in 12-hour shifts. The evening Care Worker is awake through the night for health and safety monitoring, and support.

What can 24-hour in-home carers help with?

With 24/7, around-the-clock care, a Care Worker is always watching over your loved one, offering emotional support, reducing the risk of falls and assisting in all the activities of daily living.

Paying for In-Home Care

Our focus is on creating close, trusted relationships with families and designing personalised plans that evolve to meet the needs of each person over time, and this can be more affordable than you think!

Personal care and assistance can be covered under government programmes such as Home Care Packages, NDIS & Commonwealth Health Support Program (CHSP). Please note, there may be a gap and small contribution to pay, as the Australian Government may not fund the full cost of the program.
