Night-time care: A practice guide

The experiences and needs of residents and patients in nursing and care homes are very different at night, and this is particularly true for those with dementia.

Yet nursing and care homes are not always inspected with the same rigour at night as they are during the day, and night staff do not always receive the same level of training, resources and supervision as day staff.

Providing Good Care at Night for Older People provides night staff with the information, knowledge and practical skills they need to deliver positive and appropriate care at night. The authors address all the pertinent issues in caring for older people at night, including nutrition and hydration, continence, challenging behaviour, medication, night time checking, pain management and end-of-life care.

They also look at the impact that working at night has on care staff and offer practical suggestions to help them to safeguard their own health.

The final chapter provides a set of night time care guidelines for inspectors that can also be used by managers to evaluate night time practices in their homes.

Providing Good Care at Night for Older People is essential reading for night staff and their managers and employers, as well as inspectors of services, policy makers, and anyone else with an interest in the provision of care for older people.

Providing good care at night

Caring for an older person or a person with dementia happens 24 hours a day, yet most strategies and advice are targeted for day time only.

Night time care: A practice guide provides practical information and strategies to support the provision of effective night time care for people living in residential and hospital care, community respite as well as living in their own home.

Written by Diana Kerr and Colm Cunningham, internationally recognised experts in the field of dementia and night time care, this practice guide is accessible, practical and suitable for use by individual carers as well as educators and managers who can facilitate practice and attitudinal change.

Night-time care can be purchased as a stand alone resource, however it is recommended that you purchase Providing Good Night Time Care for Older People as the practice guide refers staff to excerpts in that book. An option can be to purchase a bundle of the two books and multiple copies of the practice guide.

To assist in purchasing Night-time care for use in a group training setting, the website will recalculate the price at $25 for five - nine copies, and $22 for 10 and above.
