At Assisting Hands Home Care, we can help seniors who need 24-hour care and supervision with our 24-hour home care and live-in care in Addison, Illinois. We will have a trained and licensed caregiver at your loved one’s home 24 hours a day ready to provide personal care and assistance.
It is common for senior citizens to need some level of home care after they reach retirement age, but some will need more intensive care than others. Seniors who have chronic conditions or illnesses may need around the clock home care to ensure that they are always getting the care and assistance they need. Families cannot often handle providing their loved ones with constant care and in many cases, having a professional caregiver may be the better option anyway.
Assisting Hands Home Care provides 24-hour home care and live-in care in Addison, Illinois to help families who have senior loved ones who need care 24 hours a day. We will work with you and your loved ones to determine their care needs and whether they could benefit more from live-in care or more intensive 24-hour care. Our caregivers will provide your loved ones with quality, compassionate care and ensure that all of their needs are met.
Live-In Caregivers in Addison, IL
For live-in care or 24-hour home care services in Addison, IL or the surrounding areas, contact Assisting Hands Home Care at (630) 313-6160.
Our live-in care services are, as the name suggests, home care services in which one of our caregivers will live in the home with your loved ones and provide care throughout the day and night. For these services, we choose two caregivers who will take turns living in the home for 3 or 4 days at a time. Every few days the caregiver will alternate so there will always be a caregiver in the home, 7 days a week.
Before we begin our live-in care, we will meet with you and your loved ones to discuss their specific care needs. The care plan can include anything from personal care and assistance to help running errands and keeping the home clean.
Live-in care starts in the morning when our caregiver helps your loved ones get out of bed and get ready for the day. This can include help with personal hygiene and getting dressed. Throughout the day, we will provide personal assistance when needed, prepare meals, remind your loved ones to take their medication, and provide transportation when needed. In the evening, we will help your loved ones get ready for bed and ensure that they get to sleep.
If you have elderly loved ones who have lost their spouse, live alone, or recently returned from the hospital, our live-in care services may be beneficial. Live-in care will give you peace of mind knowing that our caregiver is always at home with your loved ones.
Preparing for a Live-In Caregiver
Because our live-in caregiver lives in the home with your loved one, you will need to provide them with a private space to sleep and keep their things. We expect our caregivers to get at least 5 hours of uninterrupted sleep each night. When it comes time for the caregiver to switch shifts, they will clean the space and prepare it for the next caregiver.
24-Hour Home Care
If your loved ones need more intensive care, our 24-hour care services may be the better option. With these services, we will have 2-3 caregivers switch shifts every 8-12 hours to ensure that a caregiver is always awake and alert inside the home. Our caregivers will not need time to sleep so you do not have to prepare a private space in your home for them.
If your loved ones have a chronic condition or an illness that requires constant, attentive care, our 24/7 home care services are a great option. There will always be a licensed caregiver in the home of your loved one to provide assistance whenever needed and respond immediately to emergencies.
