When a family member is responsible for providing care for a loved one, the night time can be difficult. At this point both the caregiver and the patient are trying to sleep which makes it a very bad time for an emergency to occur.

Normal occurrences such as providing assistance with bathroom use can cause a family caregiver to get less sleep, making them less sharp during the day.

Our overnight caregivers will stay awake through the night so that they are ready to respond to emergencies and assist with normal activities such as taking medications or bathroom use.
