It is common for families to help take care of each other, especially to care for elder relatives that begin to show signs of needing additional assistance with common everyday activities. However, the more care that your loved ones require, the harder it may be to provide without professional help. Caring for your elderly loved one can become a full-time job and that is why Assisting Hands Home Care is here to help.
In-Home Elder Care in Joliet
Assisting Hands Home Care is here for you and your elderly loved one with our home care services in Joliet, IL. We provide a free in-home assessment to help us better understand your loved one’s specific living and care needs. From the assessment, we can then plan and assign a caregiver to ensure your loved one is receiving proper and quality care.
Our caregivers at Assisting Hands Home Care are licensed and trained to assist your loved one 24 hours a day as well as respond to emergency situations. All our caregivers pass a background check, and they are bonded and insured so you know your loved one is in trusting, experienced hands while your family is protected from liability.
Our in-home elder care services may include assistance with transportation, medication reminders, meal preparation, and certain specified housekeeping tasks in addition to activities of daily living (ADLs) such as bathing, dressing, and restroom use. Our caregivers will provide companionship, by engaging in conversation and activities, and fall prevention, by removing walkway hazards and helping your loved one move around.
Our elderly home care services typically include the following:
- Personal Care: We provide personal care that includes help with activities of daily living (ADLs) including personal hygiene like dressing, bathing, and restroom use as well as eating and medication reminders.
- Care Management: Managing every aspect of care for your elderly loved ones can be difficult. We can help coordinate the care for your loved ones and assist with medication reminders and trips to doctor appointments.
- Companion Care: Our caregivers view themselves as more than just caregivers for your loved ones, we will also be a social companion for them. Our caregivers will get to know your loved ones through conversation and fun activities.
- Fall Prevention: We will make sure that your loved ones are safe as they move around the home by keeping paths clear of trip hazards and walking with them.
- Light Housekeeping: We can take care of certain light housekeeping tasks to clean and maintain the home including dusting, vacuuming, and emptying the trash.
- Meal Preparation: If your loved ones can no longer cook, we will prepare their meals for them and ensure that we follow their dietary restrictions.

Other unique care services that may be included in your customized service plan are:
- Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care: Our caregivers are specially trained to provide memory home care for seniors affected by Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. This includes memory exercises for mental stimulation.
- Post-Surgical Care: We can help your loved one readjust to living at home post-surgery by monitoring their condition and providing medication reminders.

- Live-In Care / 24-Hour Home Care: For both our live-in and 24-hour home care services, we provide a caregiver to be in the home for 24-hours. However, the main difference between the two services is that the 24-hour home care service does not require the caregiver to have time and space in the home for sleeping.
