Overnight Home Care: Sleeping & Waking Night Care

Having a carer stay overnight in case of a problem allows our clients to maintain their independence and stay in control of their lives.

What is overnight home care?

It may be that your relative is recovering from an operation and they have visitors in the day but need a little extra reassurance through the night.

We recognise that live-in overnight care can provide peace of mind to both our clients and their relatives. Our carers will arrive before your loved one goes to bed, and stay through the night, just in case.

  • What type of overnight home care services do we offer?

    We often find that live-in overnight care works well to help with a short-term situation. We work with you and your relative to tailor the care to their needs. We offer two types of care:

    Sleeping Night Support

    Sleeping night support is when one of our specialist carers simply sleeps in the home. You may want to make use of a monitor so that if your relative wakes in the night and needs assistance, the carer can hear them and be on hand to help.

    Waking Night Support

    Waking night support is when a specialist carer stays awake during the night, taking an active role in making sure your loved one is comfortable, happy, and has taken any necessary medication when required. Waking night support is recommended for more complex conditions, such as the advanced stages of live-in dementia care.

    What support do overnight carers provide?

    Overnight carers provide peace of mind that your loved one is cared for during the nighttime hours. Here are just some of the ways we can support overnight:

    • Administering medication throughout the night
    • Assisting with toilet breaks during the evening
    • Help to change positions in bed if uncomfortable after surgery
    • Support with getting a restful night’s sleep
    • Keeping a watchful eye throughout the night
    • Helping prepare for bed

    What are the benefits of overnight home care?

    Our overnight home care service prioritises your needs, here are some of the key benefits:

    • Improved sleep quality – knowing that someone is on hand to help if you need it makes it so much easier to relax and enjoy a good night’s sleep. Restful sleep is so important for your health, which makes this a vital service for many.
    • Peace of mind – both yourself and your loved ones can enjoy the peace of mind that you’re cared for during the night. This makes nighttime much less stressful. You can also talk to your carer about any concerns you may have, making the most of having a companion to stay overnight. 
    • Practical support – having someone to help you get a drink during the night or go to the toilet is invaluable when you get older or have health conditions. 
    • Reduced risk – many older people worry about falls or accidents during the night. By having one of our professional carers on hand, we’ll always be there to help you get up, reducing the risk of falls.
