Whether they need help around the house, someone to cook for them, drive them to doctor’s appointments or just provide some company, our caregivers are available at all times of the day to ensure your loved one is well cared for.
Some of our most popular services include memory care for those with Alzheimer’s or dementia, personal care and companionship, hospice care and respite care.

Home Care in Glenview, IL
Before home care services, seniors had no option other than to move in with their adult children or move to an assisted living facility or nursing home. But now with the availability of in-home caregivers, they are given the opportunity to stay home and still remain safe and health. This also allows them more control and independence over their lives.
When working with Assisting Hands, we will work with you and your loved one to develop a care plan that covers their unique needs. Whether they need someone just a few hours a week or around the clock, we can be there for them. Our caregivers have also been trained to treat clients with compassion and respect as they will focus on building a relationship with your loved one.
When contacting us for home care services, we will first set up a consultation to discuss your loved one’s care needs and schedule. We will then conduct a safety evaluation of the home as well as develop a care plan designed to fit your loved one’s needs. Finally, a caregiver whom we believe is the best fit will be assigned to the schedule to start the services.
Our home health care plans can include any of the following:
- Personal Care and Activities of Daily Living (ADLs): Self-care tasks, often known as activities of daily living (ADLs) can be hard for some with limited mobility or cognitive abilities. But our caregivers are available to help with a number of these tasks, including restroom use, dressing, ambulation, medication reminders and more.
- Meal Preparation: Cooking can be difficult for one person, let alone doing so with limited mobility. So there is always a risk for malnutrition or missed meals. But our caregivers are able to prepare a number of healthy, nutritious meals, designed to accommodate any diet or dietary restriction.
- Light Housekeeping: Keeping a house clean can be exhausting, especially if it’s just one person in the home. But our caregivers can help with light housekeeping, such as dusting, doing the dishes, taking out the trash, sweeping, mopping and more.
- Companionship: Everyone needs to have someone to which they can build a relationship. When seniors and other clients live by themselves, things can seem very lonely. Our caregivers are especially trained to establish a relationship based on compassion and respect, engaging in both games and conversation.
- Transportation and Errands: Driving can become dangerous for aging seniors. When the time comes to give up the driver’s privileges, it can be difficult to get around. Assisting Hands offers transportation and errands within our care plans that can help your loved one get to and from doctor’s appointments, pick up prescriptions, attend family events as well as family functions.
- Respite Care: When seniors needs an extra helping hand, a family often steps in. But as these needs change and additional help is needed over time, family caregivers can become worn out. To give them a break, our respite caregivers can fill in when needed, caring for your loved one and spending time with them. These services can also accommodate your schedule.
- Hospice Care: When a family member has been diagnosed with limited life expectancy and is placed on hospice care, things can get difficult. As the family will want to spend as much time as possible with their loved in their final days, our caregivers are available to take care of other tasks. Helping out with light housekeeping, cooking meals and even companionship, we can accommodate all non-medical home care needs to make things as easy as possible for the hospice patient and their family.
- Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care: One may not notice at first because the beginning stages of Alzheimer’s and dementia can be passed off as general confusion or forgetfulness. But as the patient progresses towards the later stages of the disease, their care needs become more apparent. Our caregivers are trained and experienced to accommodate these needs, guiding the patient when wandering and providing positive reinforcement in stressful situations.
