As your relatives get older, the thought of leaving them alone at night may make you increasingly uncomfortable. There is always a risk of a medical emergency happening at night, especially if your elderly loved ones suffer from an illness or chronic condition. If no one is there to respond immediately to an emergency, there could be serious consequences. Having a family member spend the night at the home of your loved ones helps, but they may not respond to an emergency quickly enough if an emergency occurs while they are sleeping.
At Assisting Hands Home Care, we can help provide care for your loved ones at night in Bartlett, IL with our overnight care services. With these services, one of our trained and certified caregivers will arrive at the home of your loved ones in the evening and will be alert throughout the night to provide any needed assistance. You and your loved ones will rest easy knowing that our caregivers are present at night in case there is a problem or emergency.

Our overnight care services can benefit senior citizens who are experiencing the following:
- Vision Loss: Seniors who suffer from impaired vision may have a difficult time moving around the house, especially at night. We will respond as soon as your loved one wakes up and help guide them to the restroom safely.
- Falls: If your loved ones are at risk for falling, this risk will only increase at night. We will not only help your loved ones move throughout the home at night but also clear paths in the home to prevent falls from tripping.
- Dementia: Seniors dealing with dementia or Alzheimer’s disease have a habit of wandering the home at night in a state of confusion. Our caregiver will immediately approach your loved one once they wake up and guide them safely back to bed.
- Post-Surgery: Recovering from surgery is especially hard on senior citizens and it can be difficult for them to sleep comfortably at night. We will help your loved ones get in and out of bed and change positions during the night to ensure their comfort.
