What is 24-hour care in Colchester?

Our 24-hour homecare services include having a professional CareGiver on hand throughout the day and another through the night. Our CareGivers keep a close eye on our Clients, to keep them safe and comfortable at all times of day and night.

24-hour care services are a realistic and valuable alternative to residential care. Most importantly, full-time homecare allows your loved one to remain in familiar surroundings.

Right at Home's full-time care at home in Colchester

Right at Home Colchester offers this type of care to anyone who needs it. Our full-time care Clients often include people with dementia, who may be prone to putting themselves at risk through confusion or disorientation. Our 24-hour team supports those with poor mobility who may be unable to move around their home without assistance.

Every family who needs around-the-clock care for a relative has their own unique story. What all of our Clients share is the desire to provide the very best for their loved one, particularly when their needs become greater than the family can manage.

The benefits of 24-hour care at home

Most importantly, our Colchester-based 24-hour homecare services provide peace of mind for our Clients and their loved ones. Beyond practical support and companionship, 24-hour care offers:

  • Improved personal care, including reducing the common risks of UTIs and skin infections
  • Reduced fall risk
  • Reassurance for older people who may otherwise suffer from loneliness
  • Improved socialisation and quality of life
  • Lower risk of dehydration or hunger

Our full-time Carers have the knowledge to care for each Client’s individual needs. 

We give our Clients the level of care that we would want for our own family members. All of our full-time care at home CareGivers understand the importance of first-rate communication. That’s is why we work in close partnership with others to offer personalised support.

When is it the right time for 24-hour care?

If you are a primary CareGiver, there may come a time to consider employing 24-hour care. It can be hard to know when the time is right, but if you are struggling to provide safe and effective care yourself, then there is no shame in getting support. 

There are certain things to consider that can help you make your decision regarding full-time care. We recommend thinking about the following questions:

Is your loved one safe if they’re home alone?

Is there a possibility that your loved one may not be safe when someone isn’t around to care for them? It may be time to seek support from a full-time Carer. Similarly, if you are concerned that your loved one isn’t able to meet their own physical needs, such as eating and drinking, our team of Carers can help. 

Are you feeling overwhelmed by providing care?

CareGiver stress can be an important sign that it may be time to seek help from someone else. If you just need some short-term support or temporary relief, you may wish to consider our respite care services.

Does your loved one require more care than you are qualified to provide? 

Most people aren’t trained to deal with the full extent of their loved one’s needs. If they require specialist care in response to a medical condition, then it’s likely time to consider 24-hour help.

We know that there are other factors to consider when deciding what is right for you and your family. But these questions are a good place to start. 

Our friendly and supportive Colchester-based team of full-time Carers and facilitators will help to define a care plan that suits you. Above all, we’ll put your loved one’s safety first.

Remember: there is no shame in enlisting full-time support to meet their care requirements.

FAQs about our 24-hour support service in Colchester

What is the difference between live-in care and 24-hour care?

24-hour care involves having two dedicated Carers visit for a set period of time. One of our CareGivers will stay throughout the day and the other will stay during the night. 

Having a live-in Carer is different as this involves a single CareGiver taking up residence in your home. Live in-Carers have agreed working hours and are not necessarily on-call 24-hours a day.

Take a look at our live-in care services that are also available in Colchester to consider which care package would best suit your circumstances best. Or speak to a member of our team for further information.

How much does 24-hour care cost in Colchester?

Our 24-hour in-home care cost is calculated based on the individual needs of each Client. In some cases, local councils or local authority organisations may offer support to help pay for a home Carer.

To find out more about funding opportunities, take a look at our Guide to Funding and Planning.

Similarly, live-in care costs vary according to each individual care plan. Both services are available long-term or short-term, to suit your needs.
