It has been estimated that 90 percent of senior citizens over the age of 65 prefer aging in place to leaving their homes for a nursing home or assisted living. With many “baby boomers” reaching their senior years, one-third of all households in the U.S. will have at least one adult above the age of 60. This trend has led to an increase in demand for in-home health care services to help senior citizens continue to live in their own homes well into their golden years. Aging in place allows senior citizens to live more independent lives, but they may still need assistance for many daily activities from driving and housekeeping to help with personal hygiene. Assisting Hands Home Care – Chicago helps senior citizens in Western Springs, IL and the surrounding areas age in place with our home care services.
