Overnight Home Care
Care for Me also offer overnight packages. Overnight care can be ideal for people who require care while their spouse or family need some rest. These packages are very flexible and you can decide whether you need one or seven nights per week.
The overnight carer can prepare supper, remind/assist with medication, help change into night clothes, assist with nightly hygiene routine and make sure the client is warm and comfortable in bed. The carer will then assist throughout the night when required.
In the morning the carer can assist with showering, dressing and preparing breakfast. They will also help with light household duties.
An overnight care package can be a great lifeline for spouses and family carers who need respite from what can be a very tiring night time routine. The client can have a great sense of security, knowing there is somebody there to assist them in all eventualities that might arise without having to awaken their spouse or family.
You can receive tax relief on any homecare package (up to 41%). Care for Me can provide information and IT47 forms to assist families in receiving the tax relief relevant to them.
