Night Care

Care overnight is generally required for two possible reasons:

1. When a person needs support during the night, to provide respite and a good night’s sleep for a primary carer (whether that is a partner, family member or Live In carer).

2. To provide reassurance and peace of mind to a person who is feeling vulnerable and anxious at being alone overnight. This can often be the case following a fall, or hospital visit.

Our night CareAngels can commence any time from 7pm to 10pm, and stay with you for 9, 10, 11 or 12 hours. There are two further options with regards to night care:

1 Waking night

A CareAngel is required to be available and on stand-by throughout the care visit. They will assist you to bed, ensuring you are comfortable; attend where required during the night, such as assist with safely going to and from the bathroom or commode. The CareAngel will also be there first thing in the morning to help you get started with your day.

2 Sleeping night

A CareAngel will assist with getting in and out of bed in the evening and morning. However, whilst you are sleeping, they too are expected to sleep, but may be disturbed once at no additional cost, which can be done with the use of a bell or monitor.

Note: for waking nights an armchair for the carer to rest in should be provided in close proximity to the client. For sleeping nights a bed must be provided with a suitable alarm/monitor so that the carer can be woken when required.


I would like to commend all the Guardian Angel Carers who looked after Mum for their kindness, patience and professionalism. They were prompt and reliable (despite horrendous local traffic jams), always smart and well presented, with impressive attention to detail with the personal care that they delivered. Their cheerful, reassuring presence provided a much-needed morale boost to a lonely, anxious and frail lady. I would also like to thank the office staff for organising the weekly rota, including difficult holiday periods, for the detailed care plan and for the regular reviews and supervision, which ensured a high quality service provision. You have all made a big difference to Mum’s life, and I would not hesitate to recommend your company to other families in our situation.

Thank you to all at Guardian Angels for the continued fantastic support you give us as a family. Grandad is so delighted with all the care he gets and is always saying how great all the girls are. Thank you so much!

We are very pleased with the progress being made. Mum is looking a lot better, and it is so nice to see her up and dressed in the morning, looking ready for the day.
