We all know that caring for a person receiving care and support isn’t a 9-5 job and that you may be woken several times over the course of a night to tend to their needs. This pattern of broken sleep can eventually lead to you becoming drained and exhausted, leaving nobody available to care for the person receiving care and support at the time they may need it the most.
Here at Westwood Care & Support Services we provide both waking night and sleeping night services to ensure that the care the person receiving care and support needs is available throughout the night.
With our waking nights’ service, we provide a personal assistant who is on duty throughout the course of the night and will tend to the needs of the person receiving care and support. This can help to provide peace of mind that somebody is awake and alert should they be needed.
With our sleeping nights service, one of our personal assistants will sleep at the property and can be woken if their services are required by the person receiving care and support. This can help to provide peace of mind that somebody is on hand should they be needed.
Westwood Care Night Owl Service
We also offer our ‘Night Owl’ service. This is a flexible night service offered between the hours of 22:00 – 08:00 and enables our customers to have a visit during the night for personal care, posture reposition, refreshments, medication etc. The calls start at a minimum of half an hour.
