What Is Overnight Homecare?
As the name suggests, overnight care is when care is needed overnight, this might be because you or a loved one do not feel comfortable alone at night and wish to have the option to be supported during the night should you need any assistance getting to the toilet, taking medication or repositioning in bed.
Overnight care can also be suitable for a person that is at risk of falling or injuring themselves during the night or may become disorientated if they wake during the night such as those living with dementia.
Overnight Homecare For Seniors
Due to the nature of overnight care, it is most common to provide overnight homecare for seniors, however it may also be relevant for someone who is disabled or has sustained an injury and lives alone.
Older people can often be at risk of falling or injuring themselves during the night on their way to the bathroom, or falling from their bed and being unable to get up due to reduced mobility. Because of this, you or a loved one may wish to consider overnight care to ensure you are safe and looked after should you wake up in the night.
Night-time carers can accompany you to the toilet or assist you during the night should you need help changing position in bed to be more comfortable or help if you need to take medication. The service can be on either a sleeping basis with the carer provided with their own place to sleep but available to wake up to 3 times or an awake basis where they are on hand throughout the night.
For those living with dementia, this can be particularly useful and puts your loved one’s mind at ease if they wake up disorientated or confused and need to be reassured – preventing harm to themselves.
