Overnight Care

Caring for loved ones sometimes requires making important decisions regarding their safety and comfort. Work and family obligations generally make overnight care a challenge for families with elderly loved ones. Elders’ Helpers can ease your mind by providing quality overnight care designed to keep your loved one in their home and safe from harm.

Overnight Care by  Elders’ Helpers: What to Expect

A caring professional from Elders’ Helpers can help your loved one safely navigate their nightly routine. Depending upon your loved one’s needs, a caregiver may:

  • Dispense medications
  • Assist with personal care duties such as bathing and dressing for bed
  • Preparing the bed with clean linens

Not only can a member of our team assist with the nightly routine —they can continue the care in the morning with breakfast preparation, dressing, and morning medication. As a result, your loved ones can go to sleep and wake up knowing that they are not alone. 

While Elders’ Helpers provides around-the-clock care, overnight care is an essential option for families to consider. Helping loved ones remain at home requires dedication and a commitment to safety. An overnight care provider from Elders’ Helpers can provide the family with information regarding their loved one’s sleeping patterns and habits. 

Safety First

Trips to the bathroom, restlessness, and confusion can result in the middle of the night. Elderly patients who have dementia or Alzheimer’s may wander from the home if left unsupervised or experience restlessness. 

An in-home, overnight care provider can protect your loved one by:

  • Assisting them to the bathroom 
  • Calming them by reading to them or sitting by them
  • Preventing them from leaving home and becoming lost
  • Prepare diet-specific meals or snacks and monitor fluids

The companionship provided in this one-on-one setting is invaluable for families. In addition, knowing that their loved one is carefully watched, comforted, and protected throughout the night allows families to achieve their own rest goals. 

Helping Elderly Loved Ones Age in Place

There truly is no place like home when it comes to helping our loved ones age in place. Unfortunately, while familiar and comforting, the home environment is not without dangers. Many elderly patients are at risk for falls, missing medication, and other factors that can harm their health. 

Elders’ Helpers has a long-standing tradition of helping elderly loved ones to remain at home. While service is available at any time of day or night, overnight care is crucial for keeping your loved one safe. 

Caring for your loved one alone is stressful and exhausting. By hiring a trained and caring professional from Elders’ Helpers, you can breathe easier knowing your loved one is in good hands. 

The support of such a caregiver is priceless for you and your loved one. In addition, the reduced loneliness and anxiousness that results from an overnight caregiver may help your loved one achieve better rest.
