Our sleeping Night Carers stay with you throughout the night on standby, but asleep. They can wake to provide small amounts of assistance such as in and out of bed, toileting and preparing light snacks during the night, or simply providing reassurance and a calm presence.
The care assistant sleeps at the property and is on hand if required. This option will suit if you don’t require regular support, but feel uncomfortable when left alone throughout the night. Anxieties and sleep deprivation can soon be improved with a sleeping night care professional there to support you. If assistance is needed more than twice during the night, this will be considered a waking night.
Our Waking Nights package have Carers awake and alert throughout the night, and are therefore able and ready to provide support at any moment. The care professional is on duty throughout the night, performing some minor tasks, maximizing productivity whilst also being attentive and ensuring your well-being. This is the best support option if you or a loved one wakes several times perhaps being disorientated or needing to go to the bathroom.
If you wake at regular intervals during the night to change position due to injury, or if you have to administer medication at regular intervals, this is likely to be the best choice for you.
