Providing care for elderly relatives during the day is possible for many families to handle themselves. However, when family members go home at night and leave their elderly relatives alone, this can create a dangerous situation. Even if you do have a family member who can spend the night with elderly relatives, they still have to get some sleep and they may not be able to respond fast enough if an emergency occurs in the middle of the night.
