Feel safe at home knowing that a Home Instead Care Professional is on hand to provide care and support throughout the night.
At Home Instead, we understand that it is important for you to know that you or your loved one feels safe and well supported at home no matter the time of day or night. Our experienced and dedicated Care Professionals are available to provide care and support during the night, whether this be as a sleep-in service or a waking night service – our overnight care is tailored for whatever you might need.
Overnight care is perfect for those who are elderly or unwell, and may either require frequent assistance during the night hours – such as with administering medication or help reaching the bathroom – or who simply want a comforting presence nearby should they need it. Having overnight care at home means that you or your loved one can remain living independently at home with the care and support you need to stay safe and well.
A sleep-in service is when the Care Professional sleeps in your home while you sleep. This type of service is ideal for those who do not need care during the night, but who are uncomfortable being alone and want the reassurance of knowing there is someone nearby should they need help. This can especially be the case for those with progressive conditions such as dementia that can leave someone feeling confused, disoriented, or stressed – having a familiar face on hand can alleviate feelings of isolation or loneliness.
Knowing there is a Care Professional sleeping close by gives peace of mind and can improve overall wellbeing, because you or your loved one are able to sleep well without anxiety. The sleep-in service may also include assisting you to bed in the evening or preparing breakfast when you wake in the morning.
A waking night service is when the Care Professional is awake and on duty throughout the night at your home. This service is ideal for those who wake frequently throughout the night needing care and support, such as assistance to the bathroom, personal or continence care, regular repositioning especially after an accident or injury, medication administration, or help orientating to the time of day in order to return to sleep.
Our care is always personalised to your needs, meaning we can revisit your overnight care options whenever you require, or if there is a change in circumstances. Whatever your situation, our Care Professionals are on hand to ensure you live well at home, your way.
We've helped thousands of families to stay safe, comfortable and happy at home. Whatever situation you're facing, or whatever the question is, Home Instead is here to help.Other non-care related enquiries
