Understanding Sitting-In Homecare Services


At BIT Homecare, we believe in providing clear and detailed information to help you make informed decisions about the care of your loved ones. In this section, we will explain what Sitting-In care is, its purpose, and how it can be a valuable support option.

What is Sitting-In Homecare?

Sitting-In Homecare is a specialised home care service designed for individuals who require short-term or temporary caregiving assistance. This service involves a trained and compassionate caregiver coming to the client’s home to provide care and companionship for a specific period. It is particularly beneficial for those recovering from surgery, illness, or injury, as well as for family caregivers who need temporary respite.

Key Features of Sitting-In Homecare:

  • Short-Term Assistance/Night and/or Day Support: Sitting-In Homecare is not a long-term commitment but offers vital support during a specific period when needed most. It can range from a few hours to several days or weeks, depending on the client’s requirements. It can be night-time support or day time support, waking nights or sleep-in night support.
  • Assistance with Daily Tasks: Caregivers can help with activities of daily living (ADLs) such as bathing, dressing, grooming, medication reminders, and mobility assistance, ensuring that the client’s daily needs are met.
  • Companionship: Caregivers offering Sitting-In Homecare provide not only practical assistance but also meaningful companionship. They engage in conversations, offer emotional support, and ensure the client’s well-being.
  • Respite for Family Caregivers: Sitting-In Homecare can be a crucial respite solution for family caregivers who need a break to rest and recharge. It allows them to confidently leave the care responsibilities to a trained professional temporarily.

Benefits of Sitting-In Homecare:

  • Personalised Support: Care plans are customised to address the client’s specific needs and preferences, ensuring that they receive the right level of care during their recovery or temporary caregiving period.
  • Cost-Effective: Sitting-In Home Care is often more cost-effective than residential care facilities while providing personalised attention.
  • Comfort and Familiarity:  Clients can receive care in the comfort of their own homes, surrounded by familiar surroundings, which can promote a faster recovery and maintain a sense of independence.
  • Peace of Mind: Families can rest assured that their loved ones are receiving dedicated care and companionship, even when they cannot be present.
