Overnight & 24-hour care

Gratitude In-home Care understands that people need different levels of overnight care. We offer two types of overnight care – active care and inactive care – to provide assistance and a sense of security overnight.

Inactive overnight care

Inactive Care is for people who need a few hours of care before bed and the morning after. Over a 12-hour period, the support worker sleeps in your home and will be available to support you when and if required before, during and after the inactive sleeping period.

For some people, having a carer stay overnight provides peace of mind and security so they can wake up fresh, well rested and with good company to start the new day.

Active Overnight Care

Active care involves continuous active support throughout the night. Our carer will not have a designated sleep time and provides assistance when required.

Medication Assistance

Keeping track of which medication to take at specific times can be difficult to manage, regardless of age or ability, and taking incorrect amounts can have serious consequences.Gratitude In-home Care can help relieve this stress by providing support to ensure prescribed medication is taken as prescribed and at the right time.
