What is Live-in and Night Care?
Live-in carers live with you in your home and are there to provide ongoing support at short notice. The main benefits of this service include companionship, having someone to ensure you are engaging socially, avoiding falls, removing the need to move into a care home and most importantly, ensuring your time spent with your loved ones is quality time.
Night care is a similar service where care professionals stay with you through the night. This can be a Sleeping Night service, where carers can support you no more than a few times. Or a Waking Night service where they are awake all night, ready to help you regularly or as needed.
Who is live-in and night care for?
Live-in care is ideal for families caring for a loved one with more complex care needs or considering moving to a care home but would rather stay in their own homes. In any case, having a live-in carer will enable you to spend quality time with your loved one.
Night care is best suited for people with sleep disorders, who need regular medication at night, usually get up many times at night and are at risk of falling, among others. This great option provides expert support and a friendly face through the night.
