Overnight care means having a carer stay with you or your loved one through the night and having the peace of mind there is a trained professional available in the home. We offer sleep in nights, which are perfect if you want someone to be there just in case and be on hand to help with any issue during the night such as to assist with using the toilet. A carer may be expected to be woken twice during a sleep in.

We also offer waking nights, providing a carer who is awake and ready to help with anything throughout the night. This may be more suitable if you or your loved on is up regularly throughout the night and needs support with toilet breaks, medication, moving and handling etc. The waking night carer will use any other time to carry out domestic duties in the household.

Overnight care is very important and can allow someone to live in their own home for a lot longer. Overnight care also offers peace of mind that there is support available at all times with every day tasks but also in an emergency. Overnight care more than anything promotes independence and as each package of care is bespoke to each individual, it ensures all needs are met.
