Waking nights care

Waking nights care is becoming increasingly difficult to obtain from domiciliary home care providers, but as one of England's largest care providers, we are able to provide a live-in care waking nights service.

Waking nights definition

Waking nights refers to a care package where most of the care worker's active hours take place at night. This is a reversal of the traditional live-in care model where most care is provided during the day. 

What does a waking nights support worker do and what are the benefits?

  • One live-in care worker can provide the full service. This ensures that high-quality, excellent continuity of care is provided every night of the week
  • It is comparable in price to a waking nights service provided by a domiciliary care agency
  • It can provide some capacity for double ups (if necessary) in the early mornings and evenings. This can help at two key times of demand for domiciliary home care agencies and thereby potentially reducing the cost of day time domiciliary care

All other aspects of live-in care remain the same

  • The price of a package of live-in care is based solely on the individual assessment of the client’s needs
  • The care worker requires a room in the client’s house for sleeping
  • A live-in care worker is entitled to the equivalent of two hours break a day
  • The maximum number of ‘active’ hours for the care worker is 11 which, if generally used at night, means that only one or two disturbances can occur during the day
  • Live-in care is purchased in a minimum of weekly blocks
