When families step in to provide care for their elderly or disabled loved ones, it is usually easier for them to cover care during the day. At night, family members will either return to their own homes, or sleep in the home of their loved ones. Either way, they will not be able to respond right away if their loved one needs help or if there is an emergency. This is why it helps to have someone alert through the night in the home.
