Night care

Are you an informal caregiver? Then your own night's sleep is sometimes not self-evident. Fortunately, there is such a thing as a night sitter. A sitter will come to your home to put you to sleep or you will stay in a residence for the night. CM reimburses part of the expenses.

A night starts at 10 p.m. at the latest and ends at 7 a.m. at the earliest. A sitting night lasts at least nine hours. CM will reimburse you half of the cost of night care, with a maximum of 15 euros per night.

  • For night care until December 31, 2023, you will be reimbursed for up to 100 nights per year.
  • For night care from January 1, 2024* you can be reimbursed up to 420 euros for day care , short stay and night care together.
