‘Sleeping night’ care is for those who require minimal assistance during the night, but who may need help at certain times or in the event of particular situations. The reassurance that someone else is in the house is also an important motivation for seeking overnight care. As the name suggests, your carer will have their own bedroom but be on hand if assistance is required. They can also help with bedtime and early-morning routines.
Those who have more regular or intensive care needs should consider ‘waking night’ care, where the carer will remain awake and on call throughout the night. This can involve staying in the same room as the person who needs care, or in an agreed location nearby. Our carers are familiar with using a variety of aids and hoists, and can provide assistance with medication as well.
