We can ensure that high-needs patients are not left alone.
We make every effort to help our patients remain in their homes for as long as possible. This includes our ability to offer around-the-clock 24-hour care with a rotating team of qualified CNAs and/or Certified Home Health Aides. Where possible, a live-in aide may reside with the patient and provide long-shift care (16 hours) on a daily basis.
When receiving care only during the day isn’t enough for your beloved family member, and the thought of relocating them to an assisted living facility or senior group home might not align with their wishes or your preferences, LightSpring Home Care is here to help. Our live-in care and 24-hour care services allow your loved one to receive the support they need while remaining in the comfort of their own home. Our live-in home care services are available for residents in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, including the following areas:
- Philadelphia, PA
- Cheltenham, PA
- Abington, PA
- Jenkintown, PA
- Atlanta, GA
- And Beyond!
For a live-in shift, the caregiver is allowed an 8-hour sleeping break. They must be provided with a sleeping bed/space as well as bathing and personal care facilities. Live-in care is billed at a flat rate per day.
With 24-hour care, two to four caregivers are booked daily and work agreed shifts of typically 8 to 12 hours. There is no sleeping break given to a caregiver during the shifts. 24-hour care is billed at an hourly rate.

Is Live-In or 24-Hour Care Right for Your Family Member?
Live-in home care services offer a comprehensive solution for families seeking to provide dedicated support to their aging loved ones. This level of care, delivered by professional caregivers, is especially beneficial for individuals with limited mobility and unique health needs, such as those recovering from a stroke or living with dementia. If you’re considering the option of overnight care, our care coordinators can help you determine if this service is an ideal fit for your family. We have found that the people who benefit most from the support of a live-in care agency often include:
Those Who Need Support Throughout the Day and Night
For individuals with limited mobility or chronic health conditions, round-the-clock assistance becomes a necessity. Aging loved ones who require personal care assistance, medication reminders, and companionship benefit from the continuity of care that a live-in caregiver can offer. Families seeking peace of mind find comfort in knowing their family member is supported, even during the nighttime hours.
Couples Who Want to Stay Together
Elderly couples share a unique bond, and staying together is often a top priority. Live-in homecare services ensure that partners can remain in their own home, receiving the care they need while cherishing their shared space and memories. This arrangement maintains their emotional well-being and independence.
Those Being Discharged From the Hospital
Individuals transitioning from hospital care to their homes may require extra support during recovery. A professional caregiver can provide essential assistance to post-surgery patients or those managing health conditions, helping them regain their strength and confidence.
Those Requiring Specialty Care
Seniors with specific medical needs, such as dementia, diabetes, COPD, or other specialized conditions, deserve tailored care. Our qualified CNAs and Certified Home Health Aides can provide the expertise and attention required to ensure your loved one’s comfort and safety.
Provide Your Loved One With the Personal Care They Deserve
At LightSpring Home Care, we firmly believe that every senior deserves the highest level of care and attention. Our live-in care and 24-hour care services reflect our commitment to ensuring your loved one’s well-being while preserving their dignity and independence. By allowing them to stay in their own home, you’re giving them the gift of comfort, familiarity, and the emotional support they need.
