A good nights sleep is essential for our everyday wellbeing and sometimes an unsettled night can lead to greater care requirements throughout the day.
Research has proven that a person’s night time experiences can have a dramatic effect on their daily care requirements. Having a poor nights sleep can impact on a person’s ability to undertake daily tasks, can leave them more unsteady on their feet and can result in increased levels of confusion.
In addition, on-going poor sleep patterns can lead to isolation throughout the day when catching up on sleep, meaning a person may be unable to interact when family and friends visit or may struggle to engage at a level that they normally would. They might also become more anxious of night time hours.
With this in mind, care and support throughout the night in the form of a night care service can be equally as important as providing care throughout the day.
A night care service that changes as you do
We understand that your night care requirements may change as your condition improves or deteriorates. As a result we offer a flexible night care service that can be regularly reviewed and adapted at any time to suit your needs.
Our Night Care service is quite common following a stay in hospital or a change in surroundings or personal circumstances.
You may not know what kind of support you require during the night. In these cases, we will look to review your night care needs over the first few days of your return home and work closely with you and your family to ensure the safest and most appropriate level of care is provided.
If you are unsure or worried about having a Night Care service, take a look at our live in care case studies, Sleeping Night Care and Waking Night Care, where you can read about individuals who have used our service to put your mind at rest.
