We provide senior and elderly care services to those living in and around Arlington Heights, IL, Mount Prospect, Wheeling, IL, and the surrounding areas.
As we age, our reaction time slows, even among the healthiest individuals. Many older adults feel unsafe driving long distances, during inclement weather, and especially at night. Don’t let your reluctance or inability to drive stop you from going to family gatherings, doing errands, attending religious services or enjoying a day out of the house. We provide transportation as part of our elderly home care services.
Caregivers can drive in their own car, or use a car provided by the client, offering both transportation and the sense of independence that comes with mobility. Prior to accepting special transportation assignments, caregivers must pass thorough background checks and provide proof of insurance.
We all lose some coordination and balance as we age. Bone density decreases as well, and as a result, minor falls can be devastating for elderly people. In fact, falls are the leading cause of both fatal and nonfatal injuries for older adults, according to the National Council on Aging.
The good news? The majority of these falls can be prevented by making simple modifications around the house. Removing clutter, clearing pathways, and changing the rugs in your home can lower the risk of devastating falls. During our initial in-home assessment for elderly care, Assisting Hands staff will provide you with a detailed fall prevention report that highlights potential risks.
Dusting hard-to-reach areas, vacuuming, lifting heavy objects or changing linens can be major undertakings for the elderly or infirmed. Our elder care service providers light housekeeping so that your loved one can live comfortably and safely at home. Our goal is to make your house feel like the home you have always enjoyed and provide comfort when it’s needed the most. Medication Reminders
Certain medications can cause unwanted side effects such as dizziness, loss of balance or drowsiness. What’s more, the medication regimen for some elderly clients can be extensive. Our caregivers provide peace of mind to families by reminding clients when to take their medication and notifying authorized family members when a change in condition occurs.
It’s a common scenario: Friends and neighbors have passed on or moved away. Your children are grown, and live busy and full lives. Getting out of the house is a bit more challenging than before. We know that our caregivers provide companionship and mental stimulation in addition to physical care, which is why we hire caregivers with quality of character above all else. We know you’ll enjoy spending part of your day chatting with them in your home.

I can personally attest to the care and concern that Daniellah brings to your home. I was very fortunate to have her come out for a consultation with my grandmother who is suffering from breast cancer and can tell you that my Gram was over the moon happy with her time with Daniellah. The owner’s bedside manner and warm demeanor makes her a joy to work with. Her caregivers are carefully selected to reflect the values that Dani herself exemplifies. I can not say enough good about her and will recommend her office to all of my family & friends! Thanks guys
