As adults grow older and their bodies slow down, it becomes increasingly difficult for them to take care of once routine tasks (such as preparing food, bathing, getting dressed, running errands, etc.). This leads to the need for outside assistance from a family member, professional caregiver, or assisted living community.
At Assisting Hands, we provide senior home care services to help your loved one receive care in the comfort of their own home. This is an ideal situation because they get to maintain their independence and continue to live in familiar surroundings. We currently offer these in-home caregiving services to residents of Niles, IL, and the surrounding areas.
Fully Customizable Services
Each individual has different needs that must be addressed. At Assisting Hands, we have the capability to assist with any non-medical needs. This ranges from simple errands and housekeeping to 24-hour personal care. While we do not offer the services of registered nurses, our caregivers are trained and certified to help with almost everything else. This includes:
- Personal assistance with bathing, grooming, using the restroom, etc.
- Meal preparation and cleanup
- Light housekeeping
- General transportation (to the store, family events, doctor’s appointments, etc.)
- Live-in care and other forms of 24-hour assistance
- Overall care management
- Alzheimer’s and dementia care
- Fall prevention services
- Non-medical health care
- Personal emergency response systems
Based on the needs of your loved one, we will happily personalize care services to ensure an optimal care experience.
What to Expect
Once you choose to take advantage of our services, you can expect immediate engagement from our caregivers. In fact, the first thing we do is sit down with family members of the senior in need to establish requirements and expectations. From here, our flexible and customizable in-home care plans can be continually modified to fully address changing needs. Once an initial plan has been established, we will perform a safety evaluation of your loved one’s home and begin providing care.
If an emergency ever occurs, our caregivers are ready thanks to their extensive training in CPR and first aid. They will do everything in their power to keep your loved one safe as first responders arrive. All of our caregivers are also bonded and insured to provide in-home senior care services.
If you have an aging family member or parent who could benefit from senior home care services, we encourage you to contact our Assisting Hands representatives. We offer our caregiving services to those in need in the Niles, IL, area. The cost of these services can be covered by your loved one’s long term care insurance.
