When providing home care for an elderly or disabled loved one, the worst seems can happen at night. Family caregivers who are admirable, dedicated, selfless devote their time and energy to helping a relative. However, it’s impossible for anyone to provide effective care on a 24/7 basis.
Both family and professional caregivers need a break at some point. When the caregiver is asleep or away, the chance for an accident or emergency still remains. Even if a caregiver is present, they’ll likely have a delayed response if an emergency occurs in the middle of the night. Knowing this, having someone awake and alert to provide overnight care is something worth considering.
