Yes, we have a wide range of caregivers some of whom do live in. It could be cheaper for you to go with a live in route then do 12 hour case. For example a 12 hour case may cost $25 hour (x) 12 hours which is $ 200 normal 8 hours plus last 4 hour of overtime which is 4 hours x $25(x) 1.5 ( Overtime) which is $ 37.50 this makes a 12 hour case cost about $ 350 dollars. Where a live in 24 hour case can cost you $ 280 dollars. That is $ 70 per day saved !
