Night Home Care
Getting up from the bed, walking to the restroom in low-light conditions, and similar events all contribute to why the night is a dangerous time for individuals with mental and/or physical limitations. At Assisting Hands Home Care, we offer overnight care services in order to make evenings more manageable and safer for seniors and adults with disabilities. Our caregivers stay awake throughout the night to assist as necessary. In the event of an emergency, we can respond at a moment’s notice.
Who Can Benefit
Overnight caregiving services are beneficial for more than just seniors. Due to the unique challenges of the night, we generally assist individuals with one or more of the following traits:
- Loss of vision
- A history of falling
- Physical limitations (often due to surgeries or pregnancies)
- Memory loss
Limited lighting, disorientation, and fatigue are the primary factors that contribute to accidents at night, while certain individuals may have medical conditions that warrant continual care. If you or a loved one fits into any of these categories, we highly recommend you take advantage of our overnight care services.
Informal Care v. Professional Care
Many family members attempt to care for loved ones as needed, but this can result in a number of problems. Statistics show that roughly 25% of informal caregivers report poor health themselves. This is because of stress, lack of sleep, and the fact that these duties are often added on top of a career and other responsibilities. Additionally, the individuals receiving the care will be at a greater risk because of the natural fatigue of the informal caregiver. By utilizing our professional services, your loved one will receive more attentive care, and informal caregivers will receive the peace of mind they deserve.
How We Can Help
One of the most important aspects of our overnight care is our flexibility. We customize our services based on the needs of each individual client in order to ensure optimal care. We will meet with you and your loved one to determine specific care requirements, and create a schedule that works best. Some of the services that we regularly provide include:
- Assistance with getting into and out of the bed
- Assistance with personal grooming (such as cleaning up and changing clothes before bed)
- Medication reminders
- Assistance with restroom usage during the night
- Emergency response and care when necessary
Our overnight care services are designed to provide those receiving the care with optimal caregiving services through the night, and their family members with greater peace of mind. As we mentioned above, these services are completely customizable. To learn more, or to schedule an appointment, simply contact our Assisting Hands Home Care representatives at (847) 915-6186. We are happy to address your questions or concerns, and are proud to assist those in need.

Live-in Care vs 24-Hour Care
Seniors who require extra support in the comfort of home have various in-home care options available to them. Live-in care and 24-hour care offer sustained care to elderly individuals in need of compassionate assistance. While both forms of senior care provide around the clock help, certain factors differentiate the two.
