Care doesn’t stop at 5pm. For many people, the evening and overnight, is when they need support the most. So, if your care requirements have led you to consider nursing homes or assisted living facilities, then you may find an alternative through Curam. An overnight carer enables you to remain independent, avoiding the routines and restrictions which can come with a care home. Having a care worker available through the night, also provides the reassurance you need to get a good night’s sleep.
Night care can help with the practical and emotional concerns of being alone when friends and family have left. An overnight carer can assist with mobility within the home, such as climbing stairs, changing clothes and getting into bed. Additionally, anxieties about being left alone, or falling in the night, can be removed by the presence of a night carer. For those living with progressive conditions such as dementia, then night time care offers on-hand support when it’s needed most.
You can both expect a good night’s sleep with this option. If you anticipate only occasional support in the night, but value the presence of a trusted carer in your home until morning, this is the right choice.
If you wake often, or need regular assistance with medication and personal care, this comprehensive option is the right choice, giving you consistency in your care throughout the night.
Choosing your own night carer through Curam gives you the peace of mind to sleep in a safe environment.
Overnight care typically covers the hours between 10pm and 8am, and you can expect to pay upwards of £90 for one shift. The benefit of Curam is that you choose your hours, so rates will vary to reflect your needs.
