Night Time Care
People’s care needs may not stop as soon as the sun goes down. We appreciate that you or your loved one may require at-Home care support during the night. Night time care tasks may include.
- at-Home carers supporting overnight medication administration
- at-Home carers supporting with overnight toilet breaks
- at-Home carers supporting in regularly changing positions in bed throughout the night
- at-Home carers reassuring dementia sufferers who may wake up confused during the night
We aim to provide you or your loved one peace of mind, to that end we offer:
A waking night at-Home care service – one of our experienced and compassionate inHome care workers will stay awake and be at hand should you or your loved one need continual care throughout the night.
A sleeping night at-Home care service – one of our experienced and compassionate inHome care workers will sleep when they are not needed but at hand in the event should you or your loved one need occassional support throughout the night.
In looking to develop our night-time services, we are looking to introduce a ‘night-owl service’ that will provide another reassuring service for you or your loved one.
Our Night time Services
How much care do you need?
The level of care you or your loved one needs, is determined by the initial assessment carried out by one of our highly knowledgeable and experienced management team. An agreed, person-centred support plan will be developed to ensure your quality of life is maximised whilst supporting your care needs.
Where will my waking night at-Home care worker be?
Your waking night at-Home care worker will stay in your or your loved one’s lounge. The at-Home care worker will be instructed to check up on you or your loved one at regular intervals
Where will my sleeping night at-Home care worker sleep?
All we ask you to provide your inHome care worker is a bed. During the inital assessment, we will ask to see where they will be sleeping.
Can at-Home carers give medication?
at-Home care for people needing help taking medication can be provided. This support will need to be disclosed so that the appropriate level of support can be provided and monitored as per statutory guidelines.
What amenities am I expected to provided for my night services at-Home care worker?
Other than providing a comfy chair, your waking night at-Home care worker will need to use your kitchen to prepare any hot drinks.
With regards to your sleeping night at-Home care worker, other than providing a place to sleep and kitchen use, you are not expected to provide any amentities such as use of your shower.
What if something goes wrong?
Should you ever feel that you are not receiving the quality of care you are expecting, please contact the management team who will endeavour to rectify the issue.
Our proposed ‘night-owl’ at-Home care service will give you or your loved one the peace of mind during the night. We are looking to incorporate the latest technology to enable our at-Home carers provide reassurances without being in the home all the time.
