Night Care with Helping Hands
When you or your loved one requires home care support services there is a chance they may benefit from night care too.
For people who need extra support due to medical conditions, or other vulnerabilities, additional help from night time carers can mean the world of difference to you and your family. For those who suffer with progressive mental illnesses such as Alzheimer’s, broken sleep can affect your overall health, which could then lead to a necessity for further health care assistance.
Here at Helping Hands, we encourage customers to look after themselves in the surroundings of their own home, where they feel most comfortable. Without a comfortable and unbroken night’s sleep, remaining independent can become more difficult, which is why you may want to consider night care services from Helping Hands.
We are happy to consider any overnight care requirement our customers may have because we understand that night time care for the elderly can be difficult, especially for a relative who does not live with their elderly loved one. Night care services from an expert Helping Hands’ night time carer can give you peace of mind knowing that your loved one is safe and cared for, should they need any assistance throughout the night.
What Does Night Home Care Provide?
We can offer various options of flexible night care for our customers, including the following:
Where the night time carer sleeps at the property for a minimum of eight hours and will expect to get a reasonable night’s sleep but is on hand if required. This option will be best for you if you don’t require regular support but feel uncomfortable when left alone throughout the night. Anxieties that occur from being left alone throughout the night can soon be improved if you have a professional carer there to support you if needed. Sleep deprivation could worsen your condition, so having that extra night care at home can help you to remain healthy and happy. If the carer has to get up more than twice during the night, then it will be considered a waking night. Night care from Helping Hands is a flexible process and if you find that you or your loved one is waking more frequently throughout the night, your night time carer will adjust to your needs.
Waking night care is where the carer is on duty throughout the night for approximately ten hours, but this is flexible. This may be the best option for you if you or a loved one wakes several times throughout the night needing support, whether you wake up disorientated or due to pain caused by a medical condition. This option may also be the best support for you, if you wake at regular intervals during the night to change position due to injury, or if you have to administer medication at regular intervals throughout the night. Again, this night care plan can be adjusted according to your evolving requirements, if you are recovering from an injury and need less support, or if you require more support due to a progressive medical condition.
We are also able to provide a sitting service. This is where a carer arrives at the property keeping the person requiring night care company for between 2 – 4 hours, allowing the regular carer/family member to take a break. This is a great option for customers who need reassurance.
How Night Home Care Can Help?
We understand the quality of sleep you get through the night can seriously affect how you feel the next day. This is why your night time carer will be there through the night when you need support, helping you to sleep soundly, whatever medical condition or disability you live with. Your health and wellbeing is at the top of our list, which is why our night care services are tailored exactly to your requirements. Night care can benefit your health and wellbeing in number of ways including the following:
• Peace of mind for you and your family
• Reassurance for those who lost confidence at night
• Support with regular medication needs throughout the night
• Better overall health due to unbroken sleep
• Comfort for those with progressive conditions such as dementia
