An increasingly large number of seniors in the baby boomer generation are choosing to remain home in their old age. Seniors in previous generations usually left their homes at retirement to live in an assisted living facility or a nursing home, but 90 percent of seniors nowadays choose to age at home.
There are many benefits to senior citizens aging in place, such as maintaining their independence and remaining in the familiarity and comfort of their own home. However, many senior citizens still require assistance while living at home and family members cannot always provide the proper care. A licensed caregiver is required to offer effective care services to your loved one.
At Assisting Hands Home Care, we provide senior home health care services to seniors in Mundelein, IL. Our staff cooperates with you and your loved one to perform an assessment of your loved one’s care needs to create a personalized care plan. Our licensed and trained caregivers will offer in-home care services and be a good companion to your loved one.
