Elderly overnight care
If your elderly loved one struggles with mobility or incontinence, then elderly overnight care may be required. 24 hour home care is available in many forms, but it is mainly divided into sleeping night care and waking night care. Elderly overnight care can be specifically tailored to your loved one’s specific needs.
Sleeping night care is the perfect solution for those who are worried about being left alone at night, but do not need much in the way of physical support. An overnight sleep in carer will sleep in their own room, and will not be expected to get up more than twice a night.
A waking night carer offers more support throughout the night, and will come to your house to do a night shift and can help you with some or all of the following:
- Administering Medication
- Changing position in bed
- Help with complex care needs (i.e. ventilators, catheters)
This is not an exhaustive list and you can arrange with the carer what assistance is needed.
