Having had my mom in adult day-care for a while, I fully realize the benefits. Now, we have moved and don't have an adult day-care center close by but I am blessed to have a lady that takes mom to her house so I have my days free. However, I'm wondering why no one has come up with the concept of "overnight care". I have slept with my mother for the last 7 years and, due to her dementia and poor sleep patterns, I'm pretty much existing in a fog of my own now. What I wouldn't give for a night alone in my bed and some sleep!! I'm wondering why someone doesn't come up with the idea of night-time care - a place where you could take your loved one just for them to sleep - no meals, no meds, no bathing - you take your loved one after dinner at home and in their nightclothes and they could have a TV room where they could watch TV if they wanted, but they would just primarily sleep and then the caregivers could pick them up in the AM and take them home for breakfast and the rest of the day. Bad idea???
