Night Shift

We pride ourselves on our clinical excellence and provision of the best quality care to our residents, 24/7. Of course, that standard of care doesn’t stop at the end of the day, our brilliant Registered Nurses and Care Assistants are on hand throughout the night.

Marian Alpas joined us as a Night Owl this year and has this to say:

“Working the night shift works for me. It’s convenient for my lifestyle enabling me to continue my daytime routine, from picking up the children from school, to walking the dog.”

Night shifts allow for independent working too, we know some people are more productive in a smaller team. Nursing homes are typically quieter at night time, although no shift is ever the same. There will of course be busy times whilst getting residents ready for bed and seeing to the early risers but because it is outside visiting hours, staff working care home night shift jobs are able to get on with the jobs they may not get a chance to do during the day.

Our six Nursing Homes in Shrewsbury, Wellington, Telford, Bridgnorth, All Stretton and Audlem provide social care and cater to a range of needs and requirements, including Dementia Care, Complex Care, Respite and Recovery and Palliative - click here to find out more about our care.

Working a night shift in a Morris Care Nursing Home is very different to working during the day. For some of our staff, night shifts are the best option to fit in with their lifestyle. Quieter and calmer but, of course, they don’t come without their ups and downs.
