As people age into their golden years, living alone becomes increasingly difficult.
Certain daily activities are more physically taxing than they used to be and even personal hygiene can become a challenge.
Most adults who reach this point want to maintain some level of independence, but understand that they need assistance in their daily lives.
Home health care services offer senior citizens the assistance they need on a daily basis to help them continue to live in their own homes.
Senior Home Care
Home care has become the preferred care method for senior citizens who want to continue to live an independent life in their homes. Families usually deal with home health care in one of three different ways.
Some families may have a family member that acts as the caregiver, some may hire a caregiver directly, and some may find a caregiver from a home care agency.
Assisting Hands Home Care is a home health care agency in Park Ridge, IL that provides a wide range of in-home and elderly care services for senior citizens and individuals with disabilities.
Our caregivers are bonded and insured to provide effective in-home care, and they go through extensive screening to ensure that we hire caregivers who exhibit patience and compassion.
