Radfield understands that everyone has their own individual care requirements and are passionate about creating care plans that capture your needs, or the needs of a loved one – whatever time of day it may be required.
Radfield Home Care Wakefield and Dewsbury offer a range of overnight care and support services including ‘waking nights’ and ‘sleep in nights’, aimed at providing a reassuring presence throughout the night. Such support has been gratefully received by their many clients:
“I would like to say a huge thank you to the managers, the coordinator and all of the Radfield carers who provided 24-hour palliative home care for dad during his last few weeks, including night time care support. I am so pleased we found Radfield Home Care as all the carers treated dad with kindness, compassion and the utmost respect. They supported us as a family too during a very stressful time and nothing was too much trouble. I would highly recommend the manager and the team of carers and would use them again if needed – Sue C, Daughter of client.”
To better understand the benefits that waking and sleep in nights can bring, Radfield Home Care Wakefield Dewsbury have created a quick guide to detail the types of night time home care support that is available. The choice of whether a client would benefit from waking night or sleep in nights will depend upon how often the client is likely to need help during the night.
Waking nights – also known as ‘night sitting’, the care professional will be awake to provide the client with care during the night. This option is particularly suitable if the client is awake a number of times in the night and requires support. It can often provide respite for the client’s loved ones who may care for them during the night, or perhaps are not located close by, providing essential reassurance.
Sleep in nights – also known as ‘night sleeping’ or ‘sleeping nights’, the care professional will sleep at the client’s home and will provide care as needed. The care professional would normally not be woken more than twice in a night, otherwise this is considered to be a waking night.
Radfield Home Care Wakefield and Dewsbury are always on hand to discuss the types of care options such as night time care and are always delighted to shape a care package that truly reflects the clients needs.
