Add your start time as normal, by selecting the start time from the "Start Time" drop down. The time the assignment ends now needs to be TYPED in manually as it may not show the "End Time" drop down. Click 'Add to Care Plan' to save.

To add a 'Live In' assignment or 24 hour care, again choose the start and end times - please note, it may show the assignment will take 0 minutes but once you add to the Care Plan it will save correctly:
