What is 24-Hour Home Care?

24-Hour Home Care means that a caregiver or several caregivers are rotating shifts to care for your loved one in their home. Someone is always awake. Caregivers work an 8-hour or 12-hour shift. These services are paid for by the hour.

Live-In Home Care vs Hourly Home Care

When it comes to choosing in-home care for an elderly person, there are many options. Live-in and 24-hour caregivers may seem like the same terminology, but they vary in how much time is spent with the senior, depending on their care needs. Understanding these differences will help determine what type of live-in or hourly home care would be best suited for each individual’s circumstance.

Hourly Home Care

  • To ensure the client is always taken care of, two or more caregivers take turns on shifts to be awake and available day and night.
  • A trusted and alert caregiver is always awake to care for your loved one. By rotating caregivers, they are able to stay alert and ready when new situations arise with a senior who wanders at night, needs assistance toileting at night, or may become confused and just need some company and reassurance.


Live-In Home Care

  • Live-in caregivers work around the clock to take care of their clients. The 8-hour break and sleeping bed is provided for them so they can rest when not working.
  • With two scheduled caregivers, your senior loved one will find a deeper sense of comfort. The heightened familiarity with the elderly’s favorite routines and moods helps to better manage dementia diagnoses as well.
  • Live-In Home Care may not be the best choice for the senior who needs assistance at night with toileting, wandering, or confusion. The caregiver must be able to sleep, take breaks, and rest.

How Much Does 24-Hour Home Care Cost?

According to the 2020 Genworth Cost of Care Study, the average national median cost for companion care (classified as homemaker services) was $54,912 ANNUALLY for a home health aide and $53,768 for a homemaker. The hourly rate for a home health aide ranged from $17.00 in Louisiana to $33.00 in Minnesota. The median cost for an hourly caregiver is $24.00 per hour.

Genworth calculates average median rates based on 44 hours per week. If your loved one only requires the help of a companion for a few hours per day or week, your costs may be significantly lower than these estimates.

For a clearer picture of your potential costs, determine your loved one’s needs and contact Beacon Eldercare to inquire about companion care providers and average costs in your area.

“By helping our clients understand the difference between Medicare and Medicaid, Beacon Eldercare helps to choose the right plan for you,” says CEO, Yvonne M. Murphy MA, MSW.

Medicare is a system of health care for citizens over 65 and/or disabled.

Medicare is something that you’ve worked towards for years, but it’s only a limited health care service. Medicare doesn’t pay for chronic illness; it only pays for hospital stays. Medicare pays for short clinical events in the home providing limited home care after a hospital or rehabilitation stay.  Furthermore, it doesn’t pay for long-term home care services or skilled nursing facilities, two expensive forays that can drain a bank account or force someone to have to move.

The best way to combat the shortcomings of Medicare is by correctly applying for Medicaid.

The Medicaid application is an exhaustive process and must align with the policies and regulations of the New York State Department of Social Services.

Beacon Eldercare Inc., led by Yvonne Murphy MA, has more than two decades of experience assisting clients in NYC to successfully achieve Medicaid eligibility.

By having Medicaid, you are able to have assistance with your health insurance, and home care services.
