Overnight care provides you with peace of mind that someone is at hand should your loved one need help throughout the night. We understand that someone who is elderly or unwell may not feel comfortable being on their own during the night. They may need help throughout the night with managing their medication, changing position, having a toilet break, a physical disability or for those with dementia who may feel isolated and confused, whatever the need, it can all be supported with the help of an overnight carer. Our night care is based upon the needs of the individual, allowing for a more personalised approach to care. All of our CAREGivers are compassionate, kind and highly-trained individuals who have their clients respect and wellbeing at the forefront of their minds.
What is Night Care?
Night care is when a CAREGiver will sleepover in your loved ones home to provide them with safety and security that someone is at hand should the need for help arise. Having night care allows for on-hand support should your loved one need help during the night with visits to the bathroom, medication management, position changing, monitoring, personal care or any other assistance that is needed throughout the night. Night care also enables family members or friends who provide care throughout the day to have a little respite and reassurance that someone is there throughout the night.
With conditions such as dementia, CAREGivers will help to adapt to the night time environment to help reduce confusion, stress and disorientation, for example, by having suitable lighting and accessibility in place. We are also able to provide assistive technology that can be introduced to help provide reassurance, these technologies include sensor mats to enable prompt responses to help keep any difficulties or distress to a minimum.
Whether your loved one needs little supervision or specialist care and support throughout the night, our CAREGivers are available to help them feel comfortable and allow them to get as much rest as possible.
Having night care helps to provide families with peace of mind knowing a CAREGiver is there should your loved one wake up disorientated, in pain or in need of help.
