Objective

 A home-care program that provides case management, advocacy, education, counseling, and respite nursing care with a specific focus on night time provision

Key Notes/Findings:

  • Overall, less night support was associated with shorter sleep and more negative moods with implications for daytime caregiving capacities
  • It was clinically notable that families who received more than 48 hours of night nursing per week slept on average almost 1 hour more than other families.
  • Problems related to night coverage were identified, with frequent cancellations or no show among issues causing disturbances to parents’ sleep patterns
