We believe that care is best provided in the home as this is where our clients tell us that they feel most comfortable. If you or a member of your family uses other care services it is worth considering if they might benefit from a Night Sitting service for that extra peace of mind. Having a carer stay overnight can help to stabilise sleeping patterns and improve the quality of overall sleep.
If the client is likely to wake often during the night, then we would generally advise a waking Night Sitter. The carer will remain on duty throughout the night to be on-hand should the client wake disorientated or in pain dues to a medical condition and need support or help in changing sleeping position. A waking Night Sitter can also help to administer medication at regular intervals.
If the client would get a good night’s sleep just knowing that there is a professional carer available to support them if needed, then a sleeping Night Sitter is the service to choose. If the client’s needs change (for example they are finding they are regularly waking more than twice a night), then we will discuss adjusting the service from a sleeping to a waking Night Sitter.
We provide waking and sleeping nights through our branches in Bristol, Berkshire, Gloucestershire and Swindon and provide live-in care across the South West. We’re on hand to listen to any of your care needs and to talk you through your options. Call us today on 0117 968 4809, request a callback or alternatively email us and we’ll contact you.
