Right at Home’s full-time care at home in Guildford & Farnham
We offer 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 support team also 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.
24-hour care is often needed as our loved ones approach end-of-life. Our Carers in Guildford and Farnham are fully trained to support all Clients in their day-to-day lives, especially those who need the reassurance and peace of mind.
The benefits of 24-hour care at home

All of our care packages are designed to suit the unique requirements. We spend time getting to know and understand their needs and aim to deliver the very best care every time.
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 difficult 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 seeking help.
There are certain things to consider that can help you make your decision regarding full-time care. We recommend considering 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? Are you worried that your loved one may fall or otherwise hurt themselves? It may be time to seek support from a 24-hour CareGiver. Similarly if you are concerned that your loved one isn’t able to meet their own physical needs, such as eating and drinking, we 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 help.
We’re aware 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 team of full-time CareGivers 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 Guildford & Farnham
What is the difference between live-in care and 24-hour care?
24-hour care involves having two dedicated members of our homecare team 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 Guildford and Farnham to consider which care package would suit your circumstances best. Or speak to a member of our team for further information.
How much does 24-hour care cost in Guildford & Farnham?
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 full-time home Carer.
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.
Contact our friendly team in Guildford and Farnham to discuss your cost of care budget and outline a care plan.
