Our overnight care services can be provided on a short-term or longer term basis, for as many nights of the week as may be required or to cover family members and loved ones during respite periods, holidays or other situations that may arise.
During sleeping nights care workers will stay at our customers home for at least eight hours, sleeping in a separate room. They are expected to have a reasonable night’s sleep, while being on hand to give any assistance our customers may require. We provide customers with a buzzer to alert their care worker should they require help during the night. In the morning, if they choose, their care worker can provide them with assistance in starting the day, providing personal care, preparing their breakfast and assisting with medication. Our sleeping nights service offers peace of mind that our customers are not alone and that help is always on hand if required.
During waking nights care workers will stay awake all night and remain in our customers bedroom with them. This may be necessary due to a recent illness or a difficult condition where they require extra assistance through the night with close monitoring. Our waking nights are also for a minimum of eight hours, and we can provide further additional hours if needed to help start the day.
