There are many different kinds of caregiving services that we offer at Assisting Hands Home Care including live-in care and 24-hour home care. These services go beyond traditional in-home caregiving services because of the increased level of supervision involved.
They are perfect for individuals who may need emergency attention on a moment’s notice, as well as for those who simply need consistent supervision and care in order to continue living in their own home.
Overall, these home care services are designed to help individuals maintain their independence. We offer these care services to residents of Hoffman Estates, IL and we accept long term care insurance to help cover these services cost.
The Differences Between Live-In Care and 24-Hour Care
While live-in care and 24-hour care are similar in nature, there are a few key differences that we would like to point out. The most important of which is the level of attentiveness provided.
Through our live-in caregiving services, we provide our clients with a caregiver who will live with them for 3 to 4 days, and then rotate with another caregiver. These services require that the caregiver receives at least 5 to 6 hours of uninterrupted sleep, in a personal space within the home, per night. Once they are awake, they can get ready to provide care as needed once again.
Through our 24-hour caregiving services, clients receive attentive care 24 hours a day. Our caregivers do not remain in the home. Instead, they rotate every 12 hours on a shift-by-shift basis. This means that you will benefit from attentive care at all hours (even during the night).
This is particularly important for those who need assistance in the early hours of the morning with using the restroom, taking important medications, etc. Needless to say, this service is great for those in need of continuous monitoring.
While we cannot provide traditional medical care (such as administering shots), we can help with standard tasks, and contact emergency medical personnel if needed.
