Overnight care can help you remain independent and secure while receiving the care you need in your own home. If you wake up often during the night, need regular assistance with medication and personal care or simply value the presence of a trusted carer in your home, overnight care may be right for you.
This kind of care is divided into sleeping night care and waking night care, depending on your needs. Curam’s experienced overnight carers provide specialist support throughout the UK.
With an overnight carer, you can live life in your own home and receive care as you need it throughout the night. They can support you in numerous ways:
As opposed to live-in carers that are available both day and night, overnight carers are generally scheduled to be in your home between the hours of 10pm and 8am. The schedule and duties of an overnight carer will depend on your needs and can be discussed with your individual carer.
Night care assistants can provide a variety of services to suit your needs. Their regular duties, tasks and responsibilities will depend on whether they’re hired to provide sleeping night or waking night care.
A sleeping night carer’s presence is mostly for reassurance and peace of mind. They will sleep in your home while you do, but are available to make one or two calls per night for the following:
A waking night carer will carry out those responsibilities as well as extra duties including:
Overnight care is a popular choice for those who have specific needs during the night, but are otherwise supported during the day by loved ones or other carers. This may include both elderly clients and children with disabilities, as well those with long-term or short-term care needs such as the following:
Sleeping night carers sleep while you sleep. Their presence is mostly to reassure you that someone is there if you need them. If you only need assistance once or twice per night, sleeping night carers will be available to help you as required.
If you anticipate only occasional support in the night but value the presence of a trusted carer in your home until morning, sleeping night care may be right for you. If you need more regular assistance, a waking night carer may be better suited to your schedule.
Waking night carers work throughout the night. In addition to helping you with any needs you may have during the night including bathroom assistance, reassurance and pain management, these carers can help with everyday tasks such as cleaning in the home while you sleep.
If you wake often, or need regular assistance with medication and personal care, waking night care can provide consistency in your care throughout the night.
