Night home care for the dying involves the provision of support in the evening and night-time hours for people in their last stage of life and their relatives. The volunteers will not perform any medical or nursing activities or heavy domestic work. However, they will be able to help with personal care, reading or monitoring. Night home care gives relatives the opportunity to rest or to get a good night's sleep.
