How Does 24-Hour Home Care Help Seniors & Families?
Family caregivers get much needed relief. Family members providing care for loved ones are under-appreciated and overworked. Hiring a caregiver will ease your burden, providing you time to recuperate and pay attention to the things you’ve neglected.
Regain your freedom. Don’t be held back because of physical challenges. A caregiver can provide the personal care and assistance needed to preserve independence. Set your own schedule and get the help you need at home when it’s convenient.
Reduce the time spent on everyday tasks that have become difficult. If everyday tasks like dressing, bathing, housekeeping, shopping, and cooking are challenging or seem to take all your time, it’s time to get the reliable help of a caregiver.
Regain your independence. Relying on friends, neighbors and even family members can be uncomfortable, and it can be frustrating. Schedules and reminders get confusing. A caregiver can come to your home on a regular schedule for all of the care and assistance you need.
It’s cost effective. The cost of care for an hourly caregiver working 40 hours per week is less than the average week’s cost at an assisted living facility. From 12 to 20 hours a week (very common schedules), there is no comparison.
Peace of mind. Knowing your caregiver is there to assist and ensure your safety provides peace of mind to you and everyone who cares about your comfort and welfare.

24-Hour In-Home Care for Seniors
Important Information for Families to Know
When interviewing an agency that provides in-home caregivers, find the answers to these 3 critical questions first.
- Is the agency licensed through the state of California?
- Are the agency’s caregivers registered home care aides?
- Is the agency available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year?
Is the agency licensed through the state of California?
All home care organizations state-wide must be approved by the California Home Care Registry. A Home Care Organization (HCO) license ensures the following requirements are met:
- Valid business license
- Dedicated office space
- Hires caregivers as employees, not as independent contractors
- Has worker’s compensation insurance
- Has professional, general, and criminal liability insurance
Why It Matters to YOU:
Home Care Licensure was set up by the state to protect the consumer, and is a requirement of all California Home Care Organizations (HCO)! No agency should be operating without a valid HCO license.
Furthermore, families who hire private caregivers or choose “referral” agencies unknowingly become “employers,” subject to the all the risk and liabilities that professional insurance protects against, like theft, on-the-job injury, etc. Without the types of insurance required by state licensure, and without knowing labor law, families could be putting themselves at risk for costly lawsuits, fees, and fines. By choosing a state licensed home care agency, you know you are protected.
Are the agency’s caregivers registered home care aides?
Any working California caregiver, whether hired privately or through an agency, must be registered as a Home Care Aide (HCA) through the state. All registered HCAs are required to:
- Register through the state
- Pass fingerprint/background check by the FBI and Department of Justice
- Be tested for Tuberculosis
- Pass a 3-hour safety training before working
- Complete a 2-hour agency training
- Pass at least five (5) hours of continuing education for every year they are an active HCA
- Renew registration every 2 years
Why It Matters to YOU:
Feel safer knowing that any registered home care aide working in your home will have cleared an extensive government background check, will be free of tuberculosis, and will be adequately and continually trained to perform basic caregiving tasks. This is the bare minimum to be compliant with California regulations. Every individual agency may require more of their caregivers.
Is the agency available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year?
Not all agencies keep the same office hours. Some agencies let voice mail pick up calls after office hours and on weekends. Other agencies forward their phones to an answering service who will relay the messages on. The best agencies will have dedicated care managers on call 24 hours a day ready to help you, right then and there. Find out how accessible agency care managers are.
Why It Matters to YOU:
Things come up, at all hours of the day and night. When something happens after hours, you or the caregivers in your home will need to talk to someone who can make decisions and take action. Basically, you need an agency who is truly there for you at all times.
