Overnight Care for Your Senior Loved One

The overnight hours are sometimes higher risk times for seniors. Insomnia is common. People with mental health issues like anxiety, depression, delusions and paranoia often experience these conditions more acutely at night. Many people with dementia are also known to experience confusion more at night than during the day. Activities like getting in and out of bed, going to the bathroom and traversing stairs involve higher risk when pursued between bouts of being at rest. Overnight is often also when family members and other caregivers are asleep themselves, and/or unavailable. Night time safety concerns sometimes unnecessarily drive decisions to move into senior care communities.
