Providing care for a loved one during the day is much easier than during the night.
However, because of low-light conditions, fatigue, and other factors, the night can be far more dangerous for individuals with physical or mental limitations.
This is why we offer overnight care services here at Assisting Hands Home Care. If an emergency occurs, or if help is needed, one of our caregivers will be alert and ready to assist.
This allows family members to get the rest they need, while ensuring that their loved one is taken care of at night. We offer these customizable services to families in Westmont, IL, and surrounding areas.
Who Benefits the Most from Overnight Care?
The common belief is that seniors are the only ones who can benefit from overnight caregiving services. While they make up a large segment, there are others who can benefit, as well. We have identified several consistencies in those who need help the most. They typically struggle with some combination of:
- Vision Loss: Individuals who suffer from impaired vision, whether due to glaucoma, cataracts, or something else, are at a risk of experiencing an accident in low-light conditions. Our caregivers will help guide these individuals at night to avoid obstacles and prevent injury.
- A History of Falling: Once one fall occurs, another is increasingly likely. Due to low levels of light, fatigue, and similar factors present during the night, it is important to be prepared. Our caregivers remain attentive throughout the night and assist as needed to prevent accidents.
- Surgery Recovery: Recovering from a surgery can be a long and painful process. Our caregivers can help those recovering from a surgery adjust their sleeping position during the night, safely guide them to the restroom, and perform similar tasks.
- Dementia: Dementia can cause individuals to wake up disoriented and wander aimlessly. This is dangerous for a variety of reasons. Our overnight caregivers will keep an eye on dementia patients to address needs as they arise and keep them safe in the middle of the night.
Our overnight caregiving services are a great option for those with medical conditions, as well. If an emergency occurs, we will be on-site to assist in a moment’s notice. No matter your family’s unique situation, our compassionate caregivers are more than happy to help. We can assist with the duties mentioned above, as well as getting dressed, taking medication, bathing, and more.
