Many families find it challenging to provide constant supervision to their senior loved one and accommodate all their specific needs. This is made even more difficult if the senior has a chronic illness or other condition that requires 24-hour care. If your aging loved one requires home care 24 hours a day, contact Assisting Hands Home Care to receive a caregiver who will reside in the home and be available day and night.
At Assisting Hands Home Care, we provide live-in care and 24-hour care services to seniors and adults with disabilities in Buffalo Grove, Deerfield, and Mundelein, IL. Our live-in home care providers will ensure that your loved one receives the proper help and supervision 24 hours a day. We will assign a caregiver who lives in the home for 3-4 days or two caregivers that alternate every 12 hours.
Many people don’t understand the difference between 24-hour care and live-in care, but there is an important distinction. 24-hour care involves two caregivers that alternate every 12 hours so your loved one always has an awake and alert caregiver available to them. Because our 24-hour caregivers don’t live at the home full-time, they don’t require a place to sleep or an area for themselves.
You and your loved one may benefit from 24-hour care if your loved one has a chronic illness or condition that requires for 24/7 care. A trained, licensed caregiver will be available 24 hours a day to provide care for your loved one and give you peace of mind.
Live-in care involves a caregiver who lives at your loved one’s home for 3-4 days at a time and provides home care services during that time. We will assign two caregivers to your loved one that will alternate shifts every 3-4 days.
To begin the process, we will schedule an in-home consultation with your loved one to assess their specific care needs. We will form a care plan based on that information, including tasks like light housekeeping, medication reminders, and meal preparation.
Our live-in caregiver will help your loved one with their morning routines, such as getting out of bed, dressing, and bathing. We will provide medication reminders and prepare meals for your loved one throughout the night. In the evening, we will assist your loved one in their nighttime routine and help them get into bed.
We have found that our services often benefit people who live on their own, recently lost their spouse, or have just returned from a hospital stay. A caregiver will provide quality care and will always be available to respond to an emergency. Our live-in care services involve a caregiver living in your loved one’s home for days at a time, so they will require a place to sleep for at least five hours. They need to have a designated space of their own during the 3-4 days of their shift and will clean the space before the next caregiver’s arrival.
