Leaving a caregiving job - adequate notice?

I work as a caregiver through an agency. I am planning on leaving the agency in order to focus on my schoolwork, but I want to be careful about how I do it in order to safeguard the emotional welfare of my clients. The "standard" for giving notice that you're leaving a job is two weeks, but because of the nature of this kind of work, I feel like that's too short, particularly for clients who I only see once a week. Would three weeks be better? A month? Advice from caregivers or people who receive service from caregivers is welcome. I want to do this right.
