Additional night time services
Sleeping night care is when the carer sleeps during the night – but they will be available to support the client whenever needed. There will usually be a slight limit on the number of times they can wake up to help you, and the number is usually twice. But that doesn’t mean that the sleeping night carer will be unable to help throughout the rest of the night; it simply means that if the client requires further help, then we may need to reassess their needs so that we can provide a level of support that will suit their needs better. If the client starts to need help at more regular intervals during the night, the waking night service may be more applicable to their needs.
Sleeping night care is for a minimum of 10 hours from £175.
A waking night carer is primarily there to support the client during the night with repositioning, changing the continence pad and bed linen etc. Unlike a sleeping night carer, the waking night carer will not sleep at all. During quieter times of the night, they will attend to other domestic duties as required, such as laundry, cleaning or tidying the house. They will stay awake ready to monitor the clients and ready to deal with any emergency as they occur.
Waking night care is for a minimum of 10 hours from £215.
