Night working in homecare

This document is available to UKHCA members only. Information on how to join UKHCA.

An important part of supporting people to live independently at home is providing care overnight. Although night care is highly valued by people who use services and their families it does place additional demands on the care workforce. UKHCA’s Factsheet on Night working in Homecare looks at night care services, what rules apply on rest breaks, mitigating the effect of night work, steps workers should take before, during and after night work, and switching from night work to day work. Updated in December 2020.
