Overnight home care is when a carer will stay at your home overnight to ensure your comfort and safety. 
After all, your loved ones' need for care doesn’t go away when the sun goes down. This makes overnight home care a cost-effective choice for around-the-clock support. 

How Does Overnight Home Care Work? 

Overnight care is done in three ways: 
1. Sleeping night 
This is when the carer will sleep in your home at the same time as your loved one. However, they will be on hand and ready to wake up if help is needed. 
2. Waking night 
A waking night involves your carer staying awake and alert. They provide care as and when it’s needed. 
3. Sitting night 
A sitting night gives the regular carer a break. A trained carer can step in and handle the overnight home care for however long you may need them.
