Many seniors and adults dread the thought of leaving their home to move into a nursing home or assisted living facility in order to receive necessary care. Fortunately, there are other 24/7 care options that allow your loved one in need of living assistance to remain in their home. This option often provides ease and comfort for those looking to retain some independence and familiarity in their day-to-day living.
The type of care services that may be required depends on the life and health situations of your loved one. Such situations include aging, surgeries, serious illnesses or chronic conditions that may limit your loved one’s ability to dress, bathe, eat, use the restroom, and perform other common activities of daily living (ADLs) on their own. For your loved ones who are experiencing these difficulties, they can benefit the most from 24/7 care.
Our caregivers at Assisting Hands Home Care are licensed and trained to help your loved one 24 hours a day with our live-in and 24-hour home care services. With these services, our caregiver will be present 24 hours a day to provide any care and assistance needed as well as respond to emergency situations. All our caregivers pass a background check, are they bonded and insured so you know your loved one is in trusting, experienced hands and your family is protected from liability.
Live-In Caregivers in Joliet
For our live-in home care services, two of our caregivers would be assigned to your loved one and one caregiver would be living in the home at a time, rotating shifts every 3 to 4 days with the other. Your loved one would receive continuous care and assistance in the morning, throughout the day and in the evening depending on their living needs. Caregivers may assist with transportation, meal preparation, and certain specified housekeeping tasks in addition to activities of daily living (ADLs).
Live-In Care Preparation
Since our live-in caregivers will be rotating shifts every 3 to 4 days, a space in the home must be provided for the caregivers to sleep and store their belongings. The caregivers will maintain and prepare the space, including changing the bedsheets, so that it is ready for the next caregiver to move in. The caregiver must be allowed at least 5 hours of sleep every night.
24-Hour Home Care
Our 24-hour home care service also provides a caregiver who will be in the home for 24-hours, similar to our live-in home care service. However, the caregiver will not sleep in the home, but will remain awake and alert at all times, including while your loved one is asleep. Caregivers will rotate on 8 to12 hour shifts and do not require a living space in the home. The home care services provided are the same as mentioned previously for the live-in care services.
