Overnight Care – Who Can Benefit from that Service
At Assisting Hands, we provide overnight caregiving services to those in need in Park Ridge, IL and the surrounding areas (Harwood Heights, Norridge, Niles and part of Chicago).
Families who have a relative with physical or mental limitations understand the danger of leaving them alone at night. Fatigue, lack of light, and other factors can greatly increase the odds of an accident occurring. While some try to provide assistance themselves, this is not always practical and can still leave the individual in need at risk.
When you work with us, we provide the services of a highly trained caregiver that will remain attentive throughout the night, and offer assistance as needed.
Seniors are not the Only Once Who Need Care During the Night
Many people assume that nighttime caregiving services only benefit seniors; however, this is not the case. While elderly individuals make up a large portion of our clientele, there are a number of others who benefit from our overnight caregiving services like pregnant women and those recuperating. We work with individuals who have:
- A history of falling
- Limited vision
- Physical limitations due to an accident or surgery
- Memory loss
- Similar complications
Because of our attentive care, we significantly reduce the odds of an accident occurring. Our caregivers will assist with getting into and out of the bed, using the restroom, and similar situations.
Our Caregivers – Highly Trained and Caring
At Assisting Hands Park Ridge IL, our caregivers are highly trained in a variety of non-medical services. While this means they cannot assist with medical injections or changing bandages, they can essentially help with anything else.
Our caregivers are trained in CPR and first aid, and are bonded, licensed, and insured to provide caregiving services. In the case of overnight caregiving, they will remain attentive throughout the night to provide assistance so you can get the rest you need.
We also look for a genuine commitment from our caregivers throughout the screening process. This means that you will only work with compassionate and caring individuals. We believe that companionship and relationships are important in any caregiving scenario, and we aim to provide this.
