Night Care

What exactly is night care?

It is common for older adults to have difficulties sleeping at night. Broken sleep patterns intensify degenerative conditions like dementia and have a negative impact on the overall well-being of people who live with them. These night interruptions might reduce your confidence and sense of independence when living at home. As a result, you may feel worried and disoriented.

These are prevalent worries among people suffering from dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. Sun downing is a word that describes how people living with these diseases, who are generally older, might become disoriented and confused throughout the late afternoon, evening, and night. It is sometimes exacerbated by the changing of the clocks in the spring and autumn. Our night care services provide consistent support throughout the night, allowing your loved one to feel comfortable and secure.

We provide a variety of professional care choices, including:

A Carer will sleep in your home under this arrangement. This can be useful if you are concerned that you are left alone at night but do not require a lot of physical support.

Our Carer will be present for at least eight hours and will sleep in their own room, but they will be available to assist you if you require assistance during the night. A Carer working a "sleeping night" would normally not anticipate having to get up more than twice. If your loved one requires more frequent attention than this, the shift is referred to as a "waking night."

The Carer is actually on duty at your home for a shift of around 10 hours in this home-care option, but different shift lengths can be arranged. They won't need a room or a bed because they will not be sleeping.


If you require assistance numerous times throughout the night, this may be the best solution for you. You may, for example, require assistance in changing your position at regular intervals to prevent the development of pressure sores, or you may require medication to be provided at certain times.


For older adults who require dementia care, waking care may be required to ensure that they do not suffer any harm during the night. Dementia patients are sometimes unable to comprehend night time cues and may get up and attempt to leave the house. In-home night care for them would require a caregiver who was aware of this potential. A senior who is very afraid and needs reassurance from a caregiver may also need to be looked after at night.

This may be required if you or another family member offers care to you or your loved one but requires a night time break. A caregiver would pay a visit to the elderly person for a set period of time, such as two or four hours, while the primary caregiver takes a break.
