It is often difficult for families to provide constant supervision to their aging loved ones, especially if their loved one has a chronic illness or condition. In these cases, someone must always be present in case an emergency should occur and our caregivers at Assisting Hands Home Care will be awake and alert and able to respond to emergencies.
At Assisting Hands Home Care, we offer live-in care and 24-hour home care services in Mundelein, IL, and the surrounding areas. Our trained and licensed caregivers will provide these services and provide your loved one with constant supervision.
Our live-in care services involve our caregivers living in your loved one’s home to provide them with assistance and care. We will assign your loved one two live-in caregivers who will work shifts of 3-4 days before alternating. This way, a caregiver will always be present in the home to respond to needs or emergencies.
We will meet with you and your loved ones to perform an assessment of their specific care needs to form a home care plan. Our live-in caregiver will remain in your loved one’s home throughout the day to perform light housekeeping, meal preparation, and medication reminders. We will also help your loved one in their morning and evening routines, including dressing, bathing, and getting in and out of bed.
You may find these services beneficial if your loved one lives alone, has recently lost a spouse, or returned from the hospital. Our caregivers will bring peace of mind to your family by living in your loved one’s home and providing compassionate, quality care.
Since our caregivers live in your loved one’s home for days at a time, they will need a space in the home to sleep. Your loved one will need to provide our caregiver with a space to sleep and rest. Our caregivers are required at least 5 hours of sleep every night and we will clean the space in preparation for the next caregiver.
Our 24-hour home care services involve two of our caregivers alternating 12-hour shifts so that a caregiver is alert and awake in your loved one’s home 24/7. This allows our caregivers to provide more intensive care to your loved one and you will not need to provide them with a place to sleep in this situation.
These services may be beneficial if your loved one has a chronic condition or illness that needs a constant, attentive caregiver. Our licensed and trained caregivers will be present and ready to respond to emergencies, which will give peace of mind to you and your family members.
