Waking and Sleeping Night Service
A Waking night Service can be provided if you require frequent attention throughout the night and would prefer a carer remain awake and close by. We can provide a carer to ensure that you are looked after and made comfortable throughout the night and to be there should you wake up and require assistance.
A Sleeping night Service can be provided if you feel that the assistance required is of a lesser concern yet you would prefer a carer close by and on call should they be needed. The carer will sleep for short periods and maintain observation at regular intervals throughout the night.
What happens next?
We will respond promptly to your enquiry regarding our home care services. A registered manager will visit you, or the client to receive care, at home or prior to discharge from hospital if that is preferable.
Of course family or advocates can be present throughout the entire assessment of needs. The experienced registered manager will assess your needs and the type of care required. They will talk through your specific requirements with you, forming a personalised care plan. Once we begin to provide a personalised live-in care plan a hard copy folder remains in the home with details of the plan and care, daily tasks and support provided.
On an ongoing basis where the carer is instructed to take care of small daily financial tasks such as bill payments, money is signed for and all activity and receipts is recorded in the care plan folder for family or a close friend or advocate to view.
