Assisting Hands Home Care can help provide seniors and adults with disabilities with 24 hours of care with our live-in care and 24-hour home care services in Elmhurst, IL and the surrounding areas. With these services, your loved ones will have a trained, insured and licensed caregiver in their home, 24 hours a day, to provide home care and assistance.
Many senior citizens are choosing to age at home in retirement instead of leaving for nursing homes to receive care. As they continue to age, their care needs at home will likely increase until they need help from a care professional. While some seniors may only require help during the day, some may need 24-hour care and supervision due to illnesses or chronic conditions.
At Assisting Hands Home Care, we can provide 24 hours of care for seniors and adults who need it with our live-in and 24-hour care services in Elmhurst, IL. We will ensure that one of our caregivers is in the home of your loved one at all times to provide personal care and assistance and react if there is an emergency. Our 24-hour and live-in care services will give you and your loved ones some peace of mind as there will always be someone in their home to care for them.
With our live-in care services, we will have a caregiver living in the home of your loved one who will switch with a second caregiver every 3-4 days. While in the home, our caregiver will ensure that all of your loved one’s care needs are met, providing assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs) as well as help with activities around the house.
Our live-in caregiver will take care of the following throughout the day:
- Mornings: Each morning, our caregiver will help your loved one out of bed and assist them with bathing, dressing, and restroom use. We will also prepare breakfast and get them ready for the day.
- Daytime: Throughout the day, our caregiver will provide personal care as needed, medication reminders, meal preparation, and transportation to take care of errands and get your loved ones to appointments and important events. We will also help keep the home clean with some light housekeeping.
- Night: Each night, our caregiver will help your loved ones with their personal hygiene and dressing and ensure that they get to bed safely.
Preparing for a Live-In Caregiver
For our live-in care services, we assign two caregivers for your loved one who will take turns living in their home for 3 to 4 days at a time. Because our caregiver will be living in the home for several days, you need to provide them with a space in the home to sleep and keep their personal belongings. Our caregiver will get the space ready for the next caregiver when it is time to change shifts.
24-Hour Home Care in Elmhurst
Our 24-hour home care services are more intensive than our live-in care services as we will have a caregiver awake in your loved one’s home 24 hours a day. We will assign multiple caregivers who will provide care for 8 to 12 hours at a time before switching, ensuring that a caregiver is always awake and present. Our caregivers will not sleep during their shift so you will not have to provide them with a space to sleep. Our 24-hour care is ideal for those with serious illnesses or chronic conditions as there will always be a caregiver present and alert to provide care and respond to emergencies no matter what time of day.
