It is relatively easy for families to care for senior relatives who need help during the day with rides, housework, and various other tasks that they can’t do themselves. When an elderly relative has a chronic condition or an illness and requires 24-hour supervision, this is much harder for a family to accommodate on their own. If your senior relative is cared for by a family member, that family member will eventually need to sleep and take care of their personal business.
If your elderly loved ones cannot be left alone at night, Assisting Hands Home Care in Batavia, IL can help with our live-in care and 24-hour caregiving services. With these services, one of our trained caregivers will be in the home with your loved one 24 hours a day to respond to emergencies and provide assistance at any time.
Live-In Care for Batavia, IL
With our live-in care services, there will be a caregiver living in the home of your loved one who can provide immediate assistance and react to emergencies. Two caregivers will be chosen who will alternate working 3-4 day shifts living in the home. This will ensure that there is always someone in your loved one’s home, which will bring you and your loved ones some much needed peace of mind.
Our representatives will meet with you and your loved ones to form a care plan for our live-in caregivers. We will take your loved one’s specific care needs into account and create a plan that can include anything from help with personal hygiene to assistance with transportation, housekeeping, and meal preparation.
Every morning, our live-in caregiver will be there to help your loved ones out of bed and assist them through their morning routines, including helping them bathe and get dressed. Throughout the day, we will provide assistance as needed and ensure that your loved ones get proper meals and take their medication. We will then help your loved ones through their night time routines and get them into bed.
The live-in care services we provide are ideal for seniors who have recently returned from a hospital stay or surgery, as well as those who have lost their spouse and live alone. Both you and your loved ones will rest easier knowing that one of our licensed and trained caregivers is always in the home with them to provide care and react to emergencies.
Preparing for a Live-In Caregiver
With these services, our live-in caregivers will be living in the home one at a time, so they will need a private place to sleep and keep their personal belongings. Our caregivers should be allowed at least 5 hours of uninterrupted sleep each night. When the caregiver reaches the end of the shift, they will clean the space and get it ready for the next caregiver.
24-Hour Home Care
Our 24-hour care services differ slightly from our live-in care because with these services, we make sure there is always an awake and attentive caregiver in the home 24 hours a day. To do this, we assign two caregivers that work alternating 12-hour shifts. Because our caregivers alternate every 12 hours, they will not need to sleep at any time while in your loved one’s home. They will be awake throughout their entire shift and ready to respond to any problem or emergency during the day or night.
If your loved one has a chronic illness or condition that requires constant, attentive supervision, our 24-hour care services are ideal. You can trust that your loved ones are in good hands 24 hours a day with our professional caregivers.
