Home Health Care in Elmhurst, IL, and the Surrounding Areas in DuPage County
Instead of choosing to age in an assisted living facility or nursing home, a lot of seniors are deciding to age at home, but they still need care and assistance to live safely. Aging at home is an attractive option, because it allows elderly individuals to maintain their home and some independence, too. With Assisting Hands Home Care’s home care services, we will provide your loved ones with whatever care and assistance they need, ensuring they can safely and successfully live at home.
To begin our services, we send one of our staff members to the client’s home to meet with the client and their family. This meeting gives us the opportunity to learn more about the care recipient, their care needs, and their home. We are then able to create an effective care plan that caters to your loved one’s needs.
The caregivers we employ at Assisting Hands will always be respectful and compassionate, providing exceptional home care for your elderly loved ones. Additionally, our caregivers are all thoroughly trained, insured, bonded, and dedicated to making sure your loved ones receive the best care. In addition to being a caregiver, they will also be a social companion and friend, taking the time to develop a personal relationship with your loved one.
Call (630) 313-6160 to get in touch with Assisting Hands Home Care if you have an elderly or disabled relative who needs home health care at home in Elmhurst, IL and nearby areas in DuPage County (See the Full List of Service Areas).

Assistance with Activities of Daily Living (ADLs)
When people reach old age, self-care tasks can be difficult—if not impossible—to do. Our caregivers from Assisting Hands will help seniors and disabled adults in need with activities of daily living. This includes help with restroom use, bathing, medication intake, getting dressed, ambulation, and others.
Eating nourishing meals on a regular basis is important for everyone, but this is especially the case for elderly and disabled individuals. However, they may have difficulties preparing meals for themselves. Our caregivers will prepare nutritious meals for your loved ones, accounting for any dietary restrictions they may have. Additionally, our caregivers will also serve the meal and take care of post-meal cleanup, too.
Keeping a clean home is important but it can be tough to do for disabled individuals and seniors. Our caregivers will perform light housekeeping duties to help keep your loved one’s home tidy including dusting, vacuuming, sweeping, laundry, emptying trash, and more.
Transportation and Errands
A lot of elderly individuals no longer drive, because it’s too dangerous for them to do so. Seniors give up driving privileges and, in addition, lose some freedom that comes with it. They can’t drive themselves to medical appointments, to visit their family, or to run errands like shopping for groceries. Our caregivers can provide transportation for clients to ensure they can make it to any doctor’s appointment and anywhere else they need to go. Furthermore, our caregivers can also help by running errands for your loved ones.
24-Hour and Live-In Care
Sometimes, elderly individuals and disabled adults require help on a 24/7 basis. At Assisting Hands, we can meet those needs through the 24-hour care and live-in care services that we provide clients who need around-the-clock care and supervision. Our live-in care services feature a live-in caregiver who lives in the client’s home, working a 3- to 4-day shift before switching with another caregiver. Our 24-hour care services feature a caregiver who works a 12-hour shift each day before switching with another caregiver; this allows an awake, alert caregiver to be available to your loved one no matter the time of day.
Seniors commonly experience feelings of loneliness, which can be heightened if they do not live near their family and friends. Our caregivers are more than just caregivers; they will also be companions to your loved ones, thus decreasing their loneliness. Our caregivers develop a personal connection with your loved one by engaging them in conversation, activities, and hobbies.
Alzheimer’s and Dementia Home Care
If an elderly individual suffers from Alzheimer’s disease or another form of dementia, then they need constant care. This care is best received at the patient’s home, because the environment of their home is both comforting and familiar to them. Our caregivers have undergone the necessary specialized training needed to provide Alzheimer’s and dementia patients with effective memory care at home. Our caregivers use mentally stimulating activities to slow down memory loss and use positive reinforcement techniques in response to any agitation or mood swings.
