What is overnight care?

Overnight care is when a carer stays overnight in your own home to ensure someone is there to help and support during the night from 10pm – 7am. Our professionally trained overnight carers are on hand to help throughout the night to assist with a variety of health care needs including complex care. They can administer medication, help them move position in bed or even be a source of comfort for those with dementia who feel confused and are unaware of what time it is.

With a night-time carer, help and support is available at any time during the night. This means you or your loved one can stay in your own home. Overnight care is a perfect solution for families and loved ones as they have peace of mind knowing there is a carer on hand to help with their every need.

What can overnight care assistants help with?

What do carers do at night? Everyone’s needs are different and our overnight care assistants are on hand to help with a variety of health care and support needs including:

  • Toileting
  • Medication administration for example pain relief
  • Helping someone move positions in bed if they are recovering from surgery or an illness
  • If they are living with dementia – they may feel confused and are unaware of what time it is
  • Mobility – ensure they don’t trip or fall during the night
  • Personal care including dressing and undressing for bed
  • Assisting them in and out of bed

 

What are the benefits of overnight care?

  • Perfect for the main caregiver or families who are providing support during the day but are unable to be there during the night
  • Peace of mind for families – as they know their loved one has professional care and support during the night
  • Someone is always there if an emergency situation arises
  • Extremely beneficial for loved ones who feel anxious and lonely during the night
  • Knowing someone is there will ensure a good night’s sleep. A good night’s sleep is essential for our mental health and wellbeing.

Types of overnight care

 

One of the questions we are regularly asked is ‘are night carers allowed to sleep?’ At Novus Care, we understand everyone’s needs during the night is unique which is why the types of overnight care is completely tailored to you and is broken down into the following overnight care options:

 

  • Sleeping night care

    A sleeping night care assistant is useful for those who don’t require regular assistance during the night. The carer sleeps in the individual’s home and is allowed to get up and help twice during the night

 

  • Waking night care

    If a loved one is frequently getting up through the night – then a waking night care assistant is the preferred option. We call this a waking night carer as they are awake and are there to help with any care and support needs throughout the night
