There are many families who have a certain family member serve as the primary caregiver who provide in-home care services to their elderly loved one. The family caregiver may visit their home every day or live with their loved one to take care of their needs full-time.
However, family caregivers cannot always provide care and may benefit from overnight care services. Our overnight caregivers will allow the family caregiver to rest at night by being awake and available to respond during emergencies. Assisting Hands Home Care offers overnight care services to those who require a caregiver at night in Buffalo Grove, IL, and the surrounding areas.
Overnight Care in Buffalo Grove, IL
Our overnight care services are beneficial to families who cannot provide proper care to their loved one during the night. Our caregivers will prevent falls by helping your loved one move around at night, remind them to take the proper medication at the correct time, and respond quickly during an emergency.
Our overnight caregiver will provide care to your loved one from the evening until the following morning. The details of the schedule will be based on your loved one’s specific needs and availability. Our caregiver will help your loved one with their morning routine, including getting them dressed, washed up, and out of bed.
Our overnight care services may benefit your loved one if they experience the following:
- Fall Prevention: Senior citizens are more likely to fall during the night because of fatigue and darkness. Our caregivers will help your loved one move around at night to prevent falls.
- Vision Loss: Approximately one-third of seniors and older adults above 65 years old experience vision-related problems like diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration, glaucoma, and cataracts. Vision problems make it dangerous and difficult for seniors to move around at night, so our caregivers will guide your loved one throughout the house during the evening.
- Dementia Care: People suffering from dementia sometimes wake up confused and begin wandering at night. Our overnight caregiver will put your loved one at ease and safely guide them back to bed in this situation.
