    You should look for backup and relief caregivers at the same time you are looking for a live-in.

    When I had a live-in he had the weekends off and I had other caregivers on weekends. Otherwise burnout hits fast. Also, live-ins get sick, take vacations, and other time off.

    I currently have three caregivers, all part-time. None live-in.

    I had part time until hand and shoulder injuries caused me to lose all of my bed and mat mobility. Now I need assistance throughout the night and have had to go to two shifts, daytime and overnight, during the week and on weekends. Increase in costs has been astronomical.
