Home Health Care in Villa Park, IL and DuPage County
Very few senior citizens are leaving their homes after retirement for nursing homes and assisted living facilities as aging in place has become the more popular choice. Seniors who choose to age at home can stay in the familiar and comfortable environment that they have known for years and maintain an element of independence in their daily lives. With our home care services, we can help seniors live safely at home by providing the care and assistance they need to do so successfully.
Our home health care services start with an in-home assessment by a member of our staff to evaluate the safety of the home and understand the care recipient’s needs. We will then form a care plan, with help from the care recipient and their family, to ensure that their care needs will be covered.
Our caregivers at Assisting Hands Home Care must complete a background check and training upon employment and they are licensed, bonded, and insured. You can trust our caregivers to provide quality care while treating your loved ones with the respect and compassion they deserve. Our caregivers will also be a companion for your loved ones as we will get to know them and develop a personal relationship.

Our home health care services may consist of the following:
Assistance with Activities of Daily Living (ADLs)
Seniors and adults with chronic conditions, disabilities, and physical or mental limitations may be unable to handle personal care activities on their own. Our caregivers can assist your loved ones with ADLs including restroom use, bathing, oral hygiene, getting dressed, ambulation, and medication reminders.
It is important to keep the home clean, but housekeeping tasks can be difficult for those with cognitive limitations or mobility issues. Our caregivers will take care of a range of housekeeping tasks including laundry, washing dishes, vacuuming, dusting, emptying trash, and more.
If your loved ones cannot prepare meals for themselves, our caregivers will prepare meals for them. We will make sure that the meals we prepare account for their dietary restrictions.
Transportation and Errands
If your loved ones do not drive, we will make sure they don’t miss out on important events or fall behind on their errands with our transportation services. Our caregivers can give your loved ones rides to doctor appointments and other engagements as well as take care of necessary errands.
Many seniors may live far from their friends and family which contributes to feelings of loneliness and depression. Our caregivers will be friends and companions for your loved ones to help reduce these feelings of loneliness. We will get to know your loved ones through pleasant conversation and participate in their favorite activities to build a personal relationship.
Dementia and Alzheimer’s Home Care
Those who are affected by Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia need constant care and it is best for them to receive care in their own homes. Our caregivers are specially trained to care for those who suffer from these conditions with our memory care services. We can help counteract agitation and mood swings by responding with positive reinforcement and our memory exercises can help reduce memory loss.
24-Hour and Live-In Care
Due to certain diseases and chronic conditions, some may need a caregiver nearby 24 hours a day. At Assisting Hands Home Care, we can help those who need 24-hour care and supervision. With our live-in care services, we will have a caregiver live in the home with your loved one for 3-4 days at a time, but they must be provided with a space to sleep each night. With our 24-hour care services, two caregivers will alternate every 12 hours and stay awake and ready to help through their entire shifts.
Personalized Home Care
Our home care services are always personalized to ensure that we cover the unique care needs of your loved ones as effectively as possible. Our care plan will accommodate your loved one’s care needs and schedule and it can also be adjusted if their care needs change.
