At Assisting Hands Park Ridge, we help individuals in need of additional care remain comfortably in their homes through our live-in care and 24-hour care services. In essence, we provide non-medical caregiving services at any time of the day depending on your needs. With our live-in care services, our caregivers remain on-site and sleep at the residence of our clients. With 24-hour care, our caregivers alternate to provide continuous, attentive care 24 hours a day. We offer these services to senior citizens of the greater Park Ridge, IL, area who need someone in their homes at all times to provide care.
Live-In Care v. 24-Hour Care
There are a few key differences between our live-in care and 24-hour care services, but it is relatively simple to determine which one you need. If you require alert care at any time of the day, then you would want to leverage our 24-hour care. If you require consistent care but can handle a stretch of 5 to 6 hours without care every day, then you can easily get by with our live-in caregiving services.
The structure of this service is that a caregiver will live on-site for 3 to 4 days, and then rotate with another caregiver. When they are on the job, they will need their own personal area to sleep for at least 5 uninterrupted hours per day. When they are not resting, they will provide care as needed. They can assist with the following types of non-medical services and more:
- Assistance with transportation around the home
- Medication reminders
- Meal preparation
- Help with changing clothes
- Assistance with using the restroom, bathing, etc.
- Light housekeeping
- Help with transportation outside of the home
- Assistance preparing for bed
This option results in the same type of care, but at all hours of the day thanks to its unique structure. Our caregivers rotate on 12-hour shifts in order to remain attentive while on-site. They do not require a place to sleep. This means that you will have access to a highly trained caregiver whenever a need arises. This is particularly beneficial for individuals who are at risk of suffering from emergency health complications.
Something that you will receive simply by working with our Assisting Hands Park Ridge caregivers is companionship. We make a point to build relationships with our clients to make their days easier and more enjoyable. We understand the important psychological benefits that result from having a friend to talk to and spend time with.
