Norwegian term or phrase: De fleste besteforeldrene stiller opp når de trengs
Trying to find a good fit for 'når de trengs'. The article is about grandparents taking their grandchildren on short trips. The full context is as follows:

Høstferien kommer gjerne litt ubeleilig på foreldrene som prioriterer å bruke ferieukene sine om sommeren og i høytidene, tror Vivian Sivertsen. De fleste besteforeldrene stiller opp når de trengs, og de stiller faktisk opp mer enn ”før i tiden”.
