In-home caregiving services are more popular than ever for individuals in the United States, as more people are utilizing some form of these services. In-home care services allow those who need such care to remain independent and within the environment of their home that they are accustomed to. In some cases, though, individuals need extra supervision beyond normal care.
At Assisting Hands Home Care, we respond to such situations with our live-in care and 24-hour care services in Palatine, IL and the surrounding areas.
24-Hour vs. Live-in Care
The main difference between our live-in care service and our 24-hour care service is the amount of attentiveness we provide to clients. For our live-in caregiving services, a caregiver lives in the home of the individual they are caring for and every three to four days, they rotate with another caregiver. As such, the caregiver must be provided with a place to sleep for five to six hours per night uninterrupted. After the caregiver’s nightly rest, they will then continue to provide necessary care.
With our 24-hour caregiving services, you get exactly that: care 24 hours a day. A different caregiver will come every 12 hours to ensure that needs are met both day and night. Because of this, caregivers in our 24-hour care services do not require a place to sleep.
Our 24-hour care services are a great option for clients who require constant care and supervision due to a medical condition. We are unable to provide medical care, but we are able to get emergency personnel on-site right away.
