Night Sitting

We provide emergency night-time support for vulnerable adults who may need support due to:

  • Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs)
  • Chest infections
  • Support following a fall without fracture
  • Carer illness or hospital admission
  • Emergency carer respite
  • A recent hospital discharge

Our service helps you stay in your own home, and avoid unnecessary admissions to hospital.

Our teams will be wearing masks and will maintain appropriate social distancing as needed.

You will not be asked to wear a mask or face covering while we are providing our night sitting service.

However, we will need to consider the number of people within the house, including members of your family, as part of the social distancing guidelines.

We’ll talk to you about the details when you’re referred to us.

We provide a compassionate and supportive service, to help you stay at home and avoid unnecessary admissions to hospital.

It doesn’t matter if you already have a carer or a family member to help you in your home already.

Our night sitting shifts run from 10pm to 7am, 7 days a week for a short intervention.

When you’re referred to us, we’ll agree the number of nights we can support you with.

You must also make sure that:

  • Any necessary equipment you need as part of your treatment must already be in the home
  • Any emergency contact details for next of kin, and those involved with decisions about your care must be available

We’re only able to support you if you live in your own home.

Unfortunately our service is not available if you’re living in a nursing home or the nursing wing of a residential home.

To be referred to us, you must be receiving care from one of our other services, such as:

You must also be confirmed as ‘safe to stay at home’ as part of your discharge notes / referral.
