Day Care & Night Care

Day and Night Care

This is a valuable addition to our live in care service.

Your loved ones may need assistance with daily activities or need company throughout the day. You may also be their primary carer and need some help looking after them due to family, work, or social commitments.

It may be that your relative has lost confidence following a fall or that they need extra support after a period in hospital. Or maybe their care needs have increased, and you would like them to have a little more support on a regular basis. Whatever your need, the extra help our home care services provide can make all the difference.

Day-time home care can be provided for a few hours a day or through several daily visits or longer shifts. This option may be preferable to those who need assistance with certain daily activities, such as washing and dressing, or at meal times. A part-time carer can prove to be an invaluable part of your loved one’s support network and can improve the quality of life of everyone involved.

Day Care

What does day-time care involve?

Our self-employed Day Carers will arrange with you to work day shifts of 2 hours or more, either to provide cover for a live-in carer, or to provide care on a regular basis each day of the week.

Their Charge will include their Pay and Agency commission.  In addition, they may also charge you travelling time and expenses in a similar way to domiciliary care and nursing agencies.

This Charge will need to be to be paid for in advance of care delivery to our escrow Payment Platform.

Day-time care can be provided either on a temporary or a long-term basis depending on the person’s specific needs.  All that they require is one week’s notice if you wish to cancel.

This form of care can also help relieve the Primary Carer of their duties during the day while ensuring that their loved one still receives the proper care in a safe and friendly environment.

Home help and companionship

Assistance is given with daily tasks such as cooking, cleaning, shopping, and transportation. Most importantly, the carer offers companionship, stimulating conversation, someone with whom to do activities, and a nurturing friendship.

Personal care

This includes home help and companionship and also provides assistance with personal care, including bathing, shaving, oral care, toileting, and dressing. The carer can even assist with mobility, including manual handling transfers, as well as diet management and administering medication.

Specialist care

A specialist carer provides a tailored service depending on the needs of an individual. This allows your loved ones to carry on living an independent life, whilst ensuring personal, health and medical needs are met. This can be provided on a part-time or full-time basis and includes Alzheimer’s and dementia care, cancer care, learning disability support, and end of life care.

Night Care

Night care can provide necessary support with toileting, medication, and mobility assistance – useful if your loved one has a disability, is incontinent, suffers from dementia, or is at risk of falling or injuring themselves during the night.

Our self-employed Night Carers will arrange with you to work night shifts of 10 to 12 hours.

Their Charge will include their Pay and Agency commission.  In addition, they may also charge you travelling time and expenses in a similar way to domiciliary care and nursing agencies.

This Charge will need to be to be paid for in advance of care delivery to our escrow Payment Platform.

Night-time care can be provided either on a temporary or a long-term basis depending on the person’s specific needs.  All that they require is one week’s notice if you wish to cancel.

Sleeping Night

During a sleeping night, the self-employed carer will sleep in your or your loved one’s home to ensure safety and security. They will need their own bedroom. The carer will typically be able to get a reasonable night’s sleep, but is available to help if needed.  If they are disturbed, then the waking night charge will be applied. This option is recommended if ongoing support is not required through the night, but you or your loved one feel uncomfortable when left alone throughout the night. Having a carer on hand can improve quality of sleep by alleviating anxieties and providing intermittent support.

Waking Night

A waking night carer can be on duty in your home to provide any necessary support throughout the night. A night carer can help with bathroom visits, personal care, monitoring, and any other needs which may arise. This may be the preferred option for those who wake several times a night and need support. Assistance may be needed if the client wakes up disorientated or wakes due to pain caused by a medical condition. Support may also be needed if your loved one wakes at regular intervals throughout the night to change position due to tissue viability conditions, injury or to take medication.
