There are many people who have worked their whole lives to earn the things they have, including their homes, which is why they are usually hesitant to give up their homes in old age. While more senior citizens are choosing to age in place because of this, they will reach a point where they need assistance in their homes in order to live their day to day lives. Family members can help provide their elderly relatives with minor care in the home, but this might only be feasible up to a certain point. When a senior citizen needs more consistent care, it may be best to bring in a trained caregiver from a home care agency.
Assisting Hands Home Care provides senior home care services to help senior citizens in Bartlett, IL, who are aging in place in their homes. We work with families of senior citizens and adults with disabilities to form in-home care plans that cover the care recipient’s needs and create a schedule that works for everyone involved. Our care plans are personalized based on your loved one’s needs and they are flexible and can be adjusted if your loved one’s care needs change.
At Assisting Hands, we employ highly trained and certified caregivers who are ready to provide personal care at home. Our senior home health aides are not only bonded and insured, but they have also each passed a background check before being hired. We are ready to respond to any emergency situation and we are also trained in First Aid and CPR.
