There are times when you may wish to consider, either:
- Live-In Care where the carer lives in your home 24 hours a day but sleeps at night.
- 24 Hour Care The carer stays with you in your home but is awake at night to provide care and support.
- Sleep-Ins where the carer sleeps at your home.
The carer lives with you in your home but, sleeps at night and is provided with breaks throughout the days. This may be ideal for you as you don’t have problems sleeping at night and it’s not essential to have somebody with you all of the time during the day. You will require a bedroom for the carer.
The carer sleeps in your home overnight for your assurance. The carer does not stay awake during this service and may only be called upon two to three times during each night, anymore and it’s no longer regarded a sleep-in. You will require a bedroom for the carer.
24 Hour Care
The carers (usually a small team of care staff) stays with you 24 hours per day and are available and awake 24 hours a day. This may be a necessity due to poor or irregular sleeping patterns, or care is required around the clock. It could be that more advanced care is required and could be either short-term or long-term.
You may consider either Live-In care or 24 hour care, due to dementia, Parkinson’s, one or more disabilities or frailty with risk of falls, confusion or limited mobility. You may want a sleep over because you’re worried at being alone overnight.
