Night Sitting Service

Night Sitting Service for South Norfolk Patients

All Hallows Homecare has been contracted by South Norfolk Clinical Commissioning Group to provide a night sitting service at home for local people nearing the end of their life. The service is designed to support  family members, enabling them to have a well-deserved break overnight in the knowledge that an experienced, trained community carer is caring for their loved one. This service is available seven days a week from 10pm to 7am and can include help with going to bed and getting up.
