If you are responsible for caring for an elderly loved one in your family, then you already know how stressful the night time can be. Emergencies tend to occur in the middle of the night and if there is no one there to help, there can be very serious consequences. If you have a family member spend the night in the home with your loved ones, they may not react quickly enough to an emergency during the night because they need to sleep sometime as well. In these cases, the 24-hour and live-in care services provided by Assisting Hands are ideal.
Assisting Hands Home Care can help senior citizens in Aurora, IL who need care 24 hours a day in their homes with our live-in and 24-hour care services. With these services, there will always be a certified professional caregiver in the home of your loved one, 24 hours a day. The presence of our caregivers will ensure the safety of your loved ones and provide you with some peace of mind knowing that they are properly cared for at night.
24-Hour Home Care
Our 24-hour care services are better suited for seniors who have a medical condition that requires constant 24-hour supervision. We assign two caregivers with this service who will work alternating 12-hour shifts, ensuring that there is always a professional caregiver awake and ready to provide assistance or react to emergencies. You do not need to make any special accommodations for our 24-hour caregivers because they will not sleep our live in the home.
Our live-in care services are what the name suggests; one of our caregivers will live in the home of your loved ones and provide them with the care they need. We assign two caregivers with these services who will take turns spending 3-4 days living in your loved ones’ home. Our live-in caregiver will need some time to sleep at night, but they will be there 24 hours a day for several days straight to provide assistance and respond to emergencies.
Our live-in care services start with an assessment of the care needs of your loved ones. We will work with you and your loved one to finalize a personalized care plan that will account for their care needs and any other tasks that need to be done. The care plan will include personal care and other helpful tasks such as transportation, housekeeping, and meal preparation.
The care your loved ones receive with our live-in care services starts in the morning. Our caregiver will help your loved ones out of bed and assist them through their morning routines. You can expect our caregivers to help with bathing, getting dressed, and restroom usage. Throughout the day, we will provide any assistance that is needed and take care of certain tasks that are part of the care plan. Our caregiver will then help your loved ones with their bed time routine and get them safely into bed. Even though our caregiver will need to sleep at night, they will be nearby in case there is an emergency.
Our live-in care services are beneficial for senior citizens who live alone or who have recently returned from the hospital following an illness or surgery. You and your loved ones can rest easy with our licensed caregiver in the home 24 hours a day.
Preparing for a Live-In Caregiver
There is one caregiver in your home at a time with these services who will need some time to sleep each night. You need to provide our caregiver with their own personal space in the home where they can keep their things and sleep. We ask that our live-in caregiver can sleep for at least 5 hours each night. When it is time to change shifts, the caregiver will clean up the space for the next caregiver.
If your elderly loved ones cannot be left at home alone due to their condition, contact Assisting Hands Home Care and ask about our live-in and 24-hour care services.
