Hourly Care

This private domiciliary care service is to help you with your daily activities on an hourly basis. The caregiver can assist with bathing, grooming, dressing, feeding, and managing medication, as well as providing companionship.
Hourly care means that your Carer doesn’t do less than an, hour’s worth of caring because we don’t believe that proper care can be delivered in less than an hour. While it’s true that some agencies work in half an hour slots, that isn’t how Private Care Dorchester registered self-employed carers work. Every home care service should be provided in the client’s own time, at the client’s own pace.

Night Care

There are generally two types of residential care services for night-time – waking nights, and on-call nights. Arranging care at night must be thorough and well-thought-out to ensure both comfort, support, and safety

These are provided to help you during the night and literally means that the
Carer will be awake all night, keeping an eye out for you whilst you sleep. Often, the carer will be in the same room as you are (this is dependent on your own wishes and the carer could be in the room next door or in the lounge). A waking night means just that – the carer will not sleep whilst on duty.

On-call nights are available for when you need someone to reach out at night in
case of an emergency – these are usually reserved for the elderly who live alone or have a health condition that requires close monitoring at night. Your Carer may be in the next room or in the lounge and will react when you call out for
him/her. The Carer may sleep in between your calls.
