The number of senior citizens in the U.S. is quickly growing because of the baby boomer generation, and more seniors are aging in place in their own homes than leaving for a nursing home or care facility. As a result, there has been a higher demand for in-home care services. Many home health care agencies like Assisting Hands help senior citizens and adults with disabilities take care of certain tasks that may become more difficult, including light housekeeping chores and personal care, so they can continue to live comfortably at home. At Assisting Hands Home Care, we provide home health care services to help senior citizens and adults in this position in Hoffman Estates, IL. Our qualified and trusted caregivers can provide a range of care services including personal care and light housekeeping, as well as good social companionship.
