What is Overnight Care?

Overnight Care at home is when a Care Worker stays in your home during the night and provides support until the morning.

We understand care could be needed at any time of the day. Our Overnight Care is designed to provide this support, offering trained care professionals for peace of mind whenever you need them.

Whether you or your loved one require 24 hour support or struggle with anxiety during the early hours, our Care Workers are ready to help.

We provide many Home Care services overnight. From assisting with personal hygiene, administering medication or help going to the bathroom, Overnight Care ensures you or your loved one can enjoy a safe and secure night’s sleep.

Your home. Your care. Your choice.

What’s the difference between a waking night and a sleeping night?

A waking night involves your Care Worker staying awake for the entire night to help you. A sleeping night is when your Care Worker sleeps in your home for the night but is close by in case you need any support.

Why choose a waking night service?

If you need support more than twice a night

If you or your loved one needs support more than twice during the night, our waking nights service can provide necessary reassurance.

To support complex needs

Waking nights are a popular choice for people with more complex needs. If you or your loved one are recovering from surgery, have dementia or need Palliative Care, a waking night may be the best choice to give reassurance and extra peace of mind. We can provide two Overnight Care Workers for a waking night if you have specific needs such as being turned in bed.

If your loved one has dementia

If your loved one has dementia, they may become confused during the night and unsure of what time of day it is. Our Care Workers can provide calm reassurance.

Why choose a sleeping night service?

Sleeping nights are slightly different than waking nights as your Care Worker sleeps in your home in a separate room. Of course, they are still ready to help if you need them.

This is ideal if you or your loved one need occasional support, such as if you suffer with arthritis, chronic pain, or other conditions that cause discomfort while sleeping.

Sleeping nights may be sufficient if you don’t need physical care. For instance, our sleeping night service could provide reassurance if your loved one becomes anxious during the night or worries when they wake up alone.

Why choose Overnight Care?

Overnight Care can make the difference between staying in your own home or entering a residential facility, like a care home. Scroll sideways to explore some of the key advantages to Overnight Care:


We understand you might require care at any time of day or night. Overnight Care means you can rely on support when you need it, even if it’s in the middle of the night.


Enjoy the reassuring and calming company of our Care Workers. We don’t just provide physical care, we also provide companionship during the early and late hours of the day.

Personal Care

Overnight Care is suitable for those who usually require some care during the night, such as administering medication, turning in bed or using the bathroom.


Nights can be particularly difficult due to an increased risk of falling. Conditions like dementia can lead to ‘wandering’ during the night. Overnight Care makes living at home possible.

Peace of Mind

Leaving a vulnerable loved one alone at night can be stressful. Having an Overnight Care Worker nearby can be especially valuable if your loved one doesn’t have an alarm to ask for help.


If you provide regular care, continuing support during nights can be challenging. Overnight Care provides respite to avoid a caregiver suffering from sleep deprivation.

About Alina Homecare

How does Alina Homecare compare to an introductory agency?

Agencies are not regulated and quality cannot be guaranteed. We provide fully regulated services that are inspected by the Care Quality Commission (CQC). We also provide full and exclusive training for our Care Workers, whereas private and agency carers may not have comprehensive training. In addition to this, our services are also backed up with central support; this means you can count on us even if your Care Worker needs time off as our local Team can step in to ensure continuity of care.

What areas do you cover?

We provide Overnight Care across the South of England. Find your local Team.

How is Overnight Care monitored?

Like all our services, our Overnight Care is regulated by the CQC. The CQC is an independent regulator that inspects our services to ensure our quality standards are maintained. This includes checking that our care is focused on our clients as individuals, as well as that we keep you safe and secure at all times.

In addition to this, we are proud to partner with Birdie. Birdie’s innovative care technology enables us to digitally log and monitor the support we provide. The Birdie Family App, with your consent, also allows full visibility of care at any time for you and your loved ones. It’s a great way of providing added reassurance that you’re receiving the highest quality care.
