Overnight care provides security, reassurance, and peace of mind for individuals and their loved ones.
During the night hours, those who receive care can often have trouble in resting, causing broken sleep patterns, which aggravate degenerative conditions such as dementia, and have a detrimental impact on wellbeing and the general welfare of those living with them.
For those who live with conditions, such as dementia and Alzheimer’s, these concerns are quite common. A service built upon personal experience; we understand the frailties that conditions like this can cause. Sundowning is a term that the world has become more familiar with, where individuals (usually within their elder ages) end up disoriented and confused, from around late afternoon through the evening and the night. Often, this is worsened by the change of clocks that occur in the spring and autumn.
Overnight care provides continuous, personalised support throughout the night hours, supporting your loved one to feel reassured, safe, and comfortable.
Depending on personal choice and care needs, overnight care can be offered in different ways:
Waking night care is when a compassionate home care professional provides overnight care but is awake during the night-time hours, always on hand to monitor your welfare and respond appropriately to any changes in your health, providing the support you need to remain confident and comfortable at home.
Sleeping night care is when a professional, compassionate carer stays overnight within your home to provide you with reassurance, peace of mind and security, supporting your wellbeing. Your expert carer is always there and on hand to monitor your health, providing all the support you need.
The cost of care for people wanting to receive an overnight home care service is often the same as, or cheaper, than what you would pay for residential care, with the benefit of receiving one-to-one, personalised, tailored and person-led care within the comfort of your own home.
For couples, the cost of overnight home care is cheaper than moving into residential care, where you would be expected to pay for two packages, and two bedrooms. With overnight home care, couples have the reassurance of staying together whilst receiving the support they need in their comfort of their own home.

From first-hand experience, we know how taking a break whilst being a primary caregiver is important. We can provide a family carer with a break from caring for a loved one, during the day or night, which can also be used as a method to see whether your overnight care works for you.
With our overnight services, we provide specialist complex care with dedicated dementia and Alzheimer champions within our teams. Conditions like dementia, Parkinson’s or multiple sclerosis can all be supported overnight, without the need of moving into a care home.
Our expert, dignified, and sensitive end of life care supports your loved one when they express the wish to remain at home. Overnight care can ensure they are peaceful and comfortable, with wants and wishes respected always.
Following events such as hospital discharge or family convalescence, we can provide short terms of overnight care to support your loved one at home, tailored to their care requirements, for as long as necessary to suit your needs at home.
