Assisting Hands Home Care provides 24-hour care and live-in care for senior citizens and adults with disabilities in Hinsdale, Downers Grove, La Grange, and Westmont, IL as well as the surrounding areas in DuPage and Cook Counties. With these services, a licensed caregiver is in the home of your loved one to provide care 24 hours a day.
Aging in place has become the most popular option for senior citizens as people want to spend their golden years living in the comfort of their home. While remaining in the home allows seniors to maintain some independence and live in comfortable surroundings, many cannot do this safely without assistance.
Depending on the circumstances, some seniors may only need occasional or part-time help with tasks around the house they can no longer handle. Others may need personal assistance with activities of daily living such as bathing and getting dressed. Some seniors who are dealing with an illness, chronic condition, or immobility will likely need someone present 24 hours a day to provide care and assistance.
If your elderly loved one needs around the clock home care due to an illness or chronic condition, Assisting Hands Home Care can help. We provide 24/7 home care and live-in care to assist seniors who need a caregiver present 24 hours a day. With these services, one of our licensed caregivers will always be in the home of your loved one to provide the care they need and respond to emergencies.

When families choose our live-in care services, caregivers will be assigned to live in the home with their elderly loved ones to provide the care they need. We typically assign two caregivers for each client who will take turns living in the home for 3 or 4 days at a time. While in the home, our caregiver will cover all of your loved one’s needs, including personal care, transportation, meal preparation, medication reminders, and light housekeeping.
Our live-in caregiver will take care of the following in a typical day:
- Mornings: Each morning, our caregiver will help your loved one out of bed and help with their personal hygiene activities such as bathing, toileting, and getting dressed. We will also prepare breakfast.
- Daytime: During the day, our caregiver will help your loved one with any personal care needed, and help around the home with housekeeping, meal preparation, and medication reminders. We are also available to provide transportation to get your loved ones to doctor appointments and help them run errands.
- Night: Our caregiver will help your loved one through their bedtime routine and ensure that they get safely to bed.
You can rest easy knowing that our caregiver is always at the home with your loved one to provide them with care and assistance whenever necessary and be their companion.
Preparing for a Live-In Caregiver
Because our caregiver lives in the home for several days at a time, they will need time and a space to sleep. We ask our clients to prepare a room for our caregiver to sleep and keep their things and they should be allowed at least 5 hours of uninterrupted sleep each night. Our caregiver will prepare the room and change the bedsheets when changing shifts with the next caregiver.
24-Hour Home Care
The difference between 24-hour home care and live-in care is that with our 24-hour care services, a caregiver will always be awake and alert in the home. We assign at least two caregivers to clients who choose 24-hour care who will alternate every 8 or 12 hours. This ensures that a caregiver is at the home every hour of the day, ready to provide any assistance needed or react to emergencies. They will provide the same care services included with our live-in care and during the night, our caregiver will stay awake and close by to monitor your loved ones.
You will not need to provide a place for our 24-hour caregivers to sleep or keep their things as they will spend their entire shifts awake before alternating. These services are ideal for seniors with serious illnesses or chronic conditions that require 24-hour supervision.
We understand that worrying about your loved one’s well-being 24 hours a day is stressful. However, you can rest assured that your loved ones are in the hands of our trusted caregivers. Each of our caregivers must pass an extensive background check and receive training upon employment, and they are licensed, bonded, and insured for your protection. You can expect our caregivers to display a high level of professionalism and treat your loved ones with compassion and respect.
