At Assisting Hands, we provide personalized senior care services that are specifically tailored to accommodate the care needs of your loved ones. We start with a meeting with you and your loved ones to determine their specific care needs and evaluate the safety of the home. We will then work with you and your loved ones to form a care plan that accommodates their care needs and schedule. Once the care plan is complete and approved, we will assign a caregiver who we believe will be a great fit with your loved ones.

Senior Home Care Services in Plainfield, IL and surrounding areas in Will and Kendall counties
When the baby boomer generation started reaching retirement age in large numbers, the increased need for senior home care became a national discussion. In previous years, families did not have many choices when it came to providing care for their elderly loved ones. It was typical for seniors to leave their homes for nursing homes or assisted living facilities when they could no longer care for themselves at home. However, healthcare professionals have since recognized the benefits of seniors receiving care in the comfort of their homes. Senior home care is now the preferred option for many families when their loved ones reach retirement age.
