Select night care
It may be that your loved one requires care through the night. Select My Carer can help you find a carer who either needs to work through the night (waking night) or who is there for peace of mind should there be an emergency (sleeping night).
A waking night carer is there for the loved one who either wakes often during the night or requires care 24 hours per day. A night carer could assist with medication, pain control, bathroom visits, changing sleep position or help a loved one who wakes and wanders.
A sleeping night is where the carer sleeps in the loved one’s home and is there primarily for security and emergencies. The carer will be expected to get a reasonable nights sleep and to be there if needed. Having a carer on hand can help relieve anxieties for the loved one and their family.
