Cost of overnight home care

The cost of overnight care at home will vary greatly depending on your geographical area and the level of service required. At Bright Care we offer two overnight care packages that are tailored to our clients’ needs:

Sleepover care

In a sleepover care service, the carer will require a bed and a quiet place to sleep. They are on duty throughout the night and will wake up to provide assistance if needed.

Waking night care

A waking night service is required when a person cannot be left alone, does not sleep through the night or needs continual attention. In this case the carer will stay awake all night to assist and be there for your loved one. A waking night service is more expensive than a sleepover service but is recommended when assistance is needed more than three times a night.

Our overnight care services are offered between 10:00 pm and 7:00 am and are available 7 days a week, 365 days a year. 

Our overnight care includes access to our emergency call-out service and our Care Managers who are always available to handle any complex emergency situations.

Overnight carers cost

All of our overnight care packages are tailored to an individual’s needs, so the cost of night time carers vary according to the type of care required. We are committed to being fully transparent in terms of our costs, and we encourage you to get in touch with one of our local branches where we can talk you through how much our services cost in more detail.


Our overnight carers cost from £200 and our waking night carers cost from £319.50. These costs are based on a nine-hour overnight shift. 

Included in our overnight carers cost:

  • Dedicated Care Manager – you’ll have one point of contact.
  • Expert matching – ensuring successful relationships between clients and Bright Carers.
  • Bright Carers of a high standard – all of our carers are full-time salaried, highly trained and specialise in care.

If your elderly loved one requires 24-hour care, we also provide this service. As with all our bespoke care packages, the exact care requirements will be assessed by our experienced Care Managers. They can also offer expert advice on all our services and help to decide what type of care is best suited to your loved one’s circumstances.
