The baby boomer generation is continuing to reach the age of senior citizens in large numbers, and more of these senior citizens are choosing to age in their homes instead of leaving for a nursing home or care facility. However, senior citizens still need some assistance in their homes to live comfortably which has led to a rise in home health care services.
Advanced home care services are ideal for seniors who want to age in place, but need assistance with personal care or basic housekeeping. Assisting Hands provides in-home health care services in Des Plaines, IL for senior citizens and adults with disabilities who want to remain in their own homes.
Our trained and trusted caregivers can provide quality personal care services that include social companionship, and help out with certain activities like housekeeping and running errands.
In-Home Health Care
Each of our caregivers at Assisting Hands Home Care goes through extensive screening and background checks before they are hired. We want to provide you and your loved ones with trusted caregivers that will provide excellent care and social companionship.
Our caregivers are ready to provide home care services for the following:
- Senior citizens who wish to age in place
- Adults with medical conditions or disabilities
- Hospice care patients
- Adults recovering from surgery
- New mothers and pregnant women, especially if there is a high-risk pregnancy
We start our in-home care services by performing an on-site evaluation to determine the safety of the home and the unique care needs of the individual. After we complete our evaluation, we will create a care plan with the client and their family that includes the schedule for our caregivers and accommodations to meet the client’s care needs.
If you have a family caregiver that helps out, we will work our care schedule around their schedule. The caregivers that we send to your loved one’s home have been extensively screened to ensure that they can provide quality care and treat our clients with compassion and respect.
