What is overnight care at home?
If you or a loved one needs care, often their care needs continue in the night. Our care workers can stay in your home overnight to help you maintain your balanced daytime routine, help you feel comfortable if you are alone at night, or to give the main carer the opportunity of a full night’s rest.
Overnight visits by our trained care workers are 10 hours long (starting between 9pm and 10pm). Additional care hours can be added on both sides of an overnight visit.
Care Concern provide two options for overnight care:
- Sleep-in. Our care workers will support you into bed, and are able to respond to two brief calls during the night to support with toileting, medication or a drink. During sleep-in visits, care workers must have a separate bedroom to sleep in. Sometimes it’s the case that our clients just feel more comfortable with someone else in the house overnight.
- Night Duty. Our care workers will be on duty throughout the night, ready to respond at any time to support you with toileting, medication, or re-positioning in bed. This is an effective support service following a hospital stay or when someone needs end of life care to ensure they remain comfortable.
Tailored overnight care at home
You can choose between sleep in and night duty care either as a single care need or part of a mixed care package. You can have one night’s care per week or you can have care every night. Our fully flexible service means we will fit around other support you might have in place from family or friends. Our care and support services are led by a professional and thoughtful team enabling you or an elderly loved one to live safely and comfortably at home.

Chiswick resident benefitting from overnight care
Matthew lives with a chronic lung condition and needs support throughout the night to use the toilet, access oxygen and to reposition himself in his bed. His wife, who is his main carer during the day, has overnight support from us so that she can get a good night’s sleep as the disrupted nights were leaving her exhausted during the day, impacting on their relationship and her ability to support him how she wanted.
Since we started providing overnight care, Matthew’s wife has been able to sleep peacefully at night. She knows our care workers are there to support him throughout the night.
