We all know that a good nights sleep is essential for our everyday wellbeing and for the more vulnerable, an unsettled night can lead to greater care requirements throughout the day.
Research has proven that a person’s night time experiences have a dramatic effect on their daily care requirements. A poor nights sleep impacts 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 in 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 and 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 service that changes as you do
We understand that your care requirements may change as your condition improves or deteriorates. As a result we offer a flexible service that can be regularly reviewed and adapted at any time to suit your needs.
It is quite common following a stay in hospital or a change in surroundings or personal circumstances, that you’re not going to know exactly what level of support you require during the night. In these cases, we will look to review your 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.
