A big concern for many seniors and their caregivers are the potential problems that may arise after the caretaker has left for the day.
Incontinence, navigation through a dark house, and fear of falling are all night-time issues that many seniors face. Loneliness, boredom, and risk of accidents or medical problems are often feared at night. Providing night care offers a higher degree of safety and the ability to respond quickly to any emergency.
Night care service providers are often companions as well, though there are strict rules that must be followed. Night care providers must have a private place to sleep though a big part of their purpose is to assist a senior that must
  get up in the middle of the night to help with bathroom care, assist with medication, or many other events that can be problematic. They are not there however, to provide company in the middle of the night if the senior just cannot sleep.
Even though night care providers often spend much of their time sleeping, they are officially on the clock as long as they are present in the house. Their job is to be there for emergency purposes and for when there are physical problems that must be dealt with during the night. Night Care is usually provided in cases such as: Hospice Care, Parkinson's Care, Heart Surgery Recovery, Paralysis Care, Long/Short-Term Care.
