Sleeping Night Carers stay with you throughout the night on standby, but asleep. They can wake to provide small amounts of assistance such as in and out of bed, toileting and preparing light snacks during the night, or simply providing reassurance and a calm presence.
Waking Nights have Carers awake and alert throughout the night, and are therefore able and ready to provide support at any moment. The Carer may perform some light domestic tasks during the night, maximising productivity whilst also being attentive and ensuring your safety and well-being.
Our Sleeping and Waking Nights service includes:

“The carers were very capable, attentive & caring…”
Assisting with personal care needs can be a sensitive area of work. Our Carers are trained and supervised to ensure they provide personal care in a patient, professional, considered and respectful manner. This is to ensure that the dignity of our clients is maintained through the manner of the Carers approach. Personal care can involve assistance with showering, washing, dressing, toileting, shaving, skin, teeth, eyes, feet care as well as other necessary activities.
Detailed medication information makes up a key part of the support planning process. Our Carers can assist you to take medication at the right times. This information will also be recorded for other healthcare professionals to access. Carers can also collect prescriptions from the pharmacy and liaise with health professionals on your behalf if required.
