What is Overnight Care?
Overnight care is a type of care that falls under a more extensive term known as Home Care or Domiciliary care. It can also come as part of a Dementia care package or a live-in care plan.
A Night Care worker that has been matched to you will stay overnight in your home to help you maintain your routine. A good night's sleep is essential to keep a good quality of life in daily living.
There are multiple types of care requirements clients may need during their hours of sleep, care such as:
- Assistance with medication
- Regular Assistance
- Bathroom Assistance
- Personal care and hygiene throughout the night
Who Needs Overnight Care and Night Care?
If you or someone close to you feels uncomfortable being left alone at night, you may find you need night-time care. People with a medical condition or physical disability may find they cannot function well during the night, affecting their overall quality of life.
One-to-one support from a night carer means someone is there to assist with toilet breaks, administering medication or moving position in bed.
Other people that might benefit from an overnight carer are people recovering from an injury surgery or people that might be suffering from mental health issues.
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:
- Medication management and administration
- Assisting with toilet breaks and personal care
- Help to change position in bed and keep comfortable
- Peace of mind and security throughout the night
- Someone on hand for those living with progressive conditions such as a type of dementia
The benefits of having an overnight care service in place include peace of mind and reassurance that your loved one will be cared for whatever happens throughout the night.
Different Types of Night Care
When it comes to overnight care, there are four options for you to choose from;
- Sleeping Night
- Waking Night
- Sitting Service
- Night Time Dementia Care
Sleeping Night Care
Sleeping night care is when a Care Professional will sleepover in your loved ones home. This provides them with the safety and security that someone is at hand should the need for help arise.
Sleeping night care is a good option for those who don’t require much supervision throughout the night but would feel more comfortable and safe if a Care Professional was there with them.
This type of care allows people to have a higher quality of sleep and know that they can have intermittent support if they need it.
Waking Night Care
Waking night care is when a Care Professional is on duty in the home to provide any help or support needed throughout the night.
This is a good option if your loved one will need help during the night with visits to the bathroom, medication management, position changing, monitoring, personal care or any other required assistance throughout the night.
It helps provide peace of mind knowing a Care Professional is there should your loved one wake up disoriented, in pain or in need of help.
Sitting Service Night Care
Sitting service night care is when a Care Professional comes home to keep your loved one company and provide respite for the person in need of care.
This is a good option if you, a family member or a friend needs respite throughout the night if you have provided care throughout the day.
It’s an excellent opportunity to give your loved one something to look forward to, knowing a Care Professional will be there to keep them company and provide help should they need it.
Night-time Dementia Care
For those with dementia, waking during the night can be an unpleasant experience as they may feel disorientated or scared. Our Care Professionals are highly-trained dementia care specialists who can help your loved one through the issues that can arise.
Care Professionals will help adapt the nighttime care environment to help reduce confusion, stress and disorientation, for example, by having suitable lighting and accessibility in place.
Assistive technology can also be introduced, such as sensor mats to enable prompt responses to help keep any difficulties or distress to a minimum.
