What is overnight care?

Overnight care is when a private caregiver stays with you at night to assist with any health-related or personal care needs you may have. The goal of overnight care is to provide support for people who need assistance with their care needs during the night, such as administering medication, helping them to and from the bathroom, assisting with personal hygiene needs and ensuring that they have a safe and restful sleep.
