Better quality sleep

  • Just knowing somebody is there, can help a loved one get into a better routine with less anxiety.
  • Sleeping well is essential for your overall physical and mental health.
  • A lack of sleep can contribute towards problems like high blood pressure and depression.

Practical help with toilet breaks or moving position in bed

  • Help with simple tasks as trips to the toilet, that become more frequent, or getting a drink that become more difficult, will encourage a good night’s rest.
  • Sleep may also be improved if helping altering positions in bed is required, particularly post injury or surgery.


  • Providing a sense of security for those who feel uncomfortable being left alone overnight.
  • It gives the family peace of mind knowing somebody is there if something goes wrong or your loved one is distressed at night.

Administering medication

  • It will give you the peace of mind that essential medicines are not missed.

Coping with progressive conditions such as Dementia

  • Care needs can change as a condition progresses.
  • Older people can often start waking more frequently or become very disorientated and start ‘wandering’.
  • This often affects those with Parkinson’s, Dementia and memory issues in its latter stages.
  • An overnight carer can keep your loved one safe at home.

Reduction in falls

  • Falls become more likely when you have had a bad nights sleep.
  • Sleep disturbances are common in the elderly and may contribute to the risk of falling in the day and at night.


Overnight Care with TrustonTap

The type of care that your loved one requires will be dependent on their condition, we offer two types of overnight care: Sleeping nights and Waking nights.

Sleeping Nights With sleeping nights your carer sleep overnight while remaining on-hand to assist with occasional care during the night. A carer will sleep in a spare room and be on hand just in case you need them. This will give the family peace of mind if help is needed it’s there.

Waking Nights For those with more advanced conditions, more care may be required through the night, such as advanced Dementia and end of life care. Your carer doesn’t sleep, so is on hand all night to help at any time. They can also do other domestic jobs that need to be done through the night.
