Making sure your elderly relatives are taken care of during the day can be difficult and stressful enough. If your loved ones suffer from an illness or chronic condition that requires constant care or supervision, it can be almost impossible for families to cover this on their own. You may be able to have someone in your family live in the home of your loved ones but eventually, they will need sleep. If your senior relatives need supervision 24 hours a day, it is best to work with a home care professional like Assisting Hands Home Care.
At Assisting Hands Home Care, we provide live-in care and 24-hour care services for those who need constant supervision in Bartlett, IL area. These services will provide you and your loved ones with some much-needed peace of mind as one of our caregivers will always be in the home to provide assistance and respond to emergencies.
If you chose our live-in care services, we will assign two caregivers who will live in the home with your loved ones. These caregivers will be present in the home one at a time and they will switch every 3-4 days. While the live-in caregiver will need some time to sleep at night, they will be present 24 hours a day to take action if there is an emergency.
Before we assign live-in caregivers to your home, we will meet with you and your loved ones who need care to assess their care needs. We will then create a care plan that covers these needs as well as any activities that they need help with throughout the home. Our live-in care services typically consist of personal care, as well as meal preparation, light housekeeping, and transportation that can make your loved ones’ lives easier.
Our live-in caregivers start first thing in the morning, helping your loved ones out of bed and assisting them with bathing and getting dressed. We will be attentive to your loved ones during the day in case they need help, and we will remind them to take their medication at the right time. At the end of the day, we can provide assistance with bedtime routines and ensure that they get to bed safely.
If your elderly loved ones live alone or have recently experienced a surgery or illness, our live-in care services are very beneficial. There will always be a licensed caregiver in the home to provide your loved ones with companionship and respond quickly if there is a problem
Preparing for a Live-In Caregiver
Because we only assign one caregiver at a time for our live-in care services, they will need a space in the home to keep their things and sleep. We ask that you allow our live-in caregivers to sleep for at least 5 hours without interruption unless there is an emergency. Before the shift change, our caregiver will prepare the space for the other caregiver.
24-Hour Home Care
If your loved ones need someone in the home who is alert and awake at all times, our 24-hour home care services are a better option. With these services, we designate two caregivers for your loved ones who will switch off working 12-hour shifts. With this schedule, there will always be one caregiver in the home, alert and ready to provide assistance. They will not sleep at any point during their shift so you do not have to provide them with a space to sleep like with our live-in care services.
Our 24-hour care is recommended for seniors who have a chronic condition or illness that requires constant supervision from someone who is awake and alert. Our caregivers will provide attentive care and stay ready to respond to emergencies.
