As much as it takes.

I don't think I understand the question.

Some people might need help getting up and going to bed and the rest of the time they can manage pretty well by themselves.

Some people need monitoring 24/7. That doesn't mean someone must be doing something with them all the time, but they cannot be left alone. How much of the day is actually spent doing something for them (dressing them, toileting them, helping them eat, etc.) depends on the nature of their impairments. Is that what you mean?

Yesterday I had coffee at a friend's house. Her husband has stage 4 cancer. During the hour we were together she got up to attend to him twice, for maybe a total of 12 minutes. She couldn't meet me at a coffee shop, obviously, but she could take a little time to visit.
