The night is a dangerous time for individuals with mental or physical limitations. This is because tasks that are already difficult for them (such as getting up from the bed, walking to the restroom, using the restroom, etc.) are much more so due to soreness and fatigue.
At Assisting Hands Home Care, we provide the services of overnight caregivers in Harwood Heights, IL to address these and similar situations. Our caregivers will remain alert throughout the night to respond to emergency needs at a moment’s notice.
Informal Care v. Overnight Home Care
Millions of people across the United States provide informal care services for a loved one. While this is certainly admirable, it comes with a great deal of risk for both parties involved. Roughly 25% of those who provide informal care report poor health themselves (this is largely due to stress, lack of sleep, and the fact that tasks are added on to already busy schedules). Additionally, the individual receiving the care will simply not get the level of assistance oftentimes required.
When you work with us here at Assisting Hands, your loved one will benefit from having a highly trained and attentive caregiver present throughout the night. This is because their job is to remain awake and assist when needed. Informal caregivers typically need sleep during the same hours as their loved ones. Because of our caregivers’ heightened training and alertness, we can effectively respond to emergencies anytime throughout the night.

Who Can Benefit from Our Overnight Care Services
While seniors make up a large portion of our clientele when it comes to overnight home care, they are far from the only ones who can benefit from them. Due to the unique challenges of the night, we help individuals with:
- Vision loss
- A history of falling
- Physical limitations (surgeries and pregnancies can lead to this scenario)

Because of limited lighting and simple fatigue during the night, anybody who falls into these and similar categories can benefit from the services of overnight caregivers. At the end of the day, our ultimate goal is to provide exceptional services and greater peace of mind.
