Overnight Care

We are on-hand with support through the night

Home care does not stop at the end of the day. Our CAREGivers also provide overnight care so you or your loved one can rest comfortably through the twilight hours too.
Overnight care is when an expertly trained CAREGiver stays in your home overnight to meet your normal activities of daily living. Care needs don’t stop at the end of the working day – fortunately for many who need help, neither does caregiving.
You may find you need night-time care if you or someone close to you feels uncomfortable being left alone. One-to-one nightly care from one of our fully trained CAREGivers means someone is there to assist with toilet breaks, administering medication or moving position in bed.

Everybody is different and each situation is unique, which is why our overnight care is tailored to you. With a dedicated night-time CAREGiver, help is available at any time. It means you or your loved one can stay in your own home – the place that is most comfortable.

Why would I need overnight care?

Overnight care can ease your or a loved one’s anxiety about being alone at night. But it also helps in many other ways, including:
· Support with administering medication through the night
· Assisting with toilet breaks
· Regular help for changing position in bed, particularly after an operation or injury
· Better overall health by being able to rest through the night
· Someone on hand for those living with progressive conditions such as dementia
· Extra peace of mind for your family knowing someone is on-hand
· Giving respite to family carers who need a break

Above all else, finding reliable overnight care is sometimes the deciding factor in allowing people to stay in their own home, rather than considering residential care.

Overnight care with Home Instead

We offer two main options for overnight support:
A sleeping night for the CAREGiver

A sleeping night for the CAREGiver means they can support you up to twice each night so they also get enough rest to continue supporting you or another client the following day.
However, if you find you are waking more often than this each night, your CAREGiver is still there to help you. If you find that you are waking more regularly than we can talk about making adjustments to your care plan to better suit your needs.

A waking night for the CAREGiver

If you need a lot of support at several times during the night – maybe if you wake up disorientated or need regular help in changing position or having medication – we can arrange for one of our trained CAREGivers to help.
We call this a waking night as the CAREGiver will be on duty throughout the night. How long they are needed for is flexible and up to you. Having this continuous support from one of our night-time CAREGivers can make a world of difference to you and your family.
