Home Care Agency in Yorkville, IL and Surrounding Areas in Kendall County.
Nowadays, seniors prefer to stay home to age instead of leaving for a retirement home or an assisted living community. Elderly individuals often spend their adult lives working hard to earn their homes, so they don’t want to leave. Home is also a comfortable, familiar place where they can maintain some independence. However, seniors may reach a point where safely living at home means also getting some amount of everyday care. In such a situation, home care is ideal.

Personal Assistance with Daily Activities
Most of the in-home care services that we offer include personal assistance. Our caregivers help with self-care activities, including restroom use, bathing, getting dressed, and ambulation. Furthermore, we will provide reminders about medication intake and transportation to medical appointments.
Light Housekeeping and Chores
Doing household chores can be difficult if you have mobility problems, but our caregivers will make sure the client’s home remains in good shape by doing light housekeeping tasks such as laundry, sweeping, vacuuming, and dusting among others.
Grocery Shopping and Meal Preparation
If elderly individuals struggle to make their own food, they may not get proper nutrition. Our caregivers will prepare nourishing meals for clients on a daily basis to ensure they get the nutrition they need. Additionally, we take any dietary restrictions into consideration and will do the grocery shopping.
Companion for Seniors
The caregivers we employ at Assisting Hands are not only caregivers to your loved ones but also social companions. We know loneliness can be an issue for seniors, particularly if their family doesn’t live nearby. We will pick a caregiver who we believe is a good fit and companion for your loved one to combat such feelings.
In-Home Care for Dementia and Alzheimer’s Patients
People affected by Alzheimer’s disease and dementia need constant care because these diseases are degenerative cognitive diseases. The care is best provided at the patient’s home, because their home is an environment they are both familiar and comfortable with. With the proper training, our caregivers will provide care to Alzheimer’s and dementia patients, engaging them in memory exercises that slow down memory loss. Additionally, our caregivers know how to properly handle the agitation and mood swings that are commonly experienced by Alzheimer’s and dementia patients.
24-Hour Home Care and Live-In Care
With our live-in and 24-hour care services, Assisting Hands can help those individuals who need 24/7 assistance. Our live-in care services involve a caregiver who works a shift that lasts 3 to 4 days, lives at the client’s home during the shift, and sleeps during the nighttime. Our 24-hour care services include caregivers who work alternating 12-hour shifts and are awake for the entirety of their shift.
