Nighttime homecare for the dying

Nighttime homecare for the dying involves the provision of support in the evening and nighttime hours for people in their last stage of life and their relatives.

What is nighttime homecare?

The volunteers will be able to help with personal care, reading or monitoring. Nighttime homecare gives relatives the opportunity to rest or to get a good night's sleep. The volunteers will not perform any medical or nursing activities or heavy domestic work.

Who may provide this type of care?

The night home care may be provided by volunteers from an organisation that is affiliated to the Netherlands association of volunteers for the provision of palliative terminal care (VPTZ Nederland)). See the website for VPTZ Nederland to find an organisation near you.

Maximum rates for a non-contracted care provider

Have you chosen a healthcare provider with whom we have no contract? Then, we will reimburse according to our maximum rates. If the rate invoiced by the non-contracted care provider is higher than our maximum rates, you will have to pay the difference yourself. You will be able to find contracted care providers with our Care finder.
