UC - Overnight Care?

edited January 2020 in Universal Credit (UC)
I received a question in my ‘journal’ recently regarding getting help from‘someone who doesn’t live with you’ Now, I sleep 90% downstairs, The questions asked are. Do you require an extra bedroom for extra help. My husband is my carer. 
When I tick the relevant boxes it replies I no longer need overnight care! 
It doesn’t give an option for someone with a disability that can’t get upstairs yet needs help from her caregiver at least 5 times during the night. I left a note on my journal but there must be something I’m doing wrong. How can something so simple be so complicated? 
Has anyone else had a similar problem?
any advice is appreciated.
