In-home caregiving services are becoming a very attractive option for aging baby boomers, and others with physical or mental limitations.
They negate the need for assisted living facilities and informal care provided by loved ones as seniors can receive care in the comfortable and familiar environment of their home.
At Assisting Hands Home Care, we offer in-home care services for those in need in Chicago, IL, and the surrounding areas. We tailor our plans to the individual and are highly flexible with our scheduling.
What’s Included in In-Home Care?
Through our in-home caregiving services, we help individuals with physical and mental limitations get through their day-to-day activities. This includes seniors, those recovering from surgery, and others. Before we provide any services, though, we meet with trusted family members to come up with an optimized care plan. The assistance we provide can include the following and more based on your loved one’s needs:
- General transportation
- Assistance with maintaining personal hygiene (including using the restroom, showering, and getting dressed)
- Help with getting into and out of the bed
- Incontinence care
- Meal preparation services
- Light housekeeping
- Grocery shopping
While the list goes on, it is also important to note the personal touch that our caregivers provide. We fully believe in the power of companionship and will only match your loved one with a caregiver who will make an effort to connect on a personal level. Individuals with declining health do not have the same opportunities to see friends and family members that the rest of us have. We attempt to fill this void while providing essential care.
Caregivers You Can Trust
Our Assisting Hands Home Care caregivers are highly trained and dedicated to their craft. We ensure this through our stringent hiring and onboarding procedures. Before our caregivers can work with your loved one, they must:
- Pass a thorough background check
- Pass rigorous training in caregiving services, CPR, and first aid
- Display a genuine level of care and compassion throughout the process
We truly believe that our caregivers are the most qualified in the industry. We guarantee that your loved one will be treated with the utmost respect. Even if the particular caregiver we provide is not an ideal fit, we have a diverse selection from which we can draw from to find a better replacement. At the end of the day, we want to make this process as easy and comfortable for you and your loved one as possible.
