In the past, senior citizens have left their homes and moved into nursing homes or assisted living communities when living by themselves became too much to handle. However, about 90 percent of seniors over the age of 65 now prefer to age in place in their own homes.
Seniors who age in place can live more independently in the familiar surroundings of their homes, but they may still need some assistance with housekeeping duties and even personal activities like bathing and dressing on a daily basis.
As more seniors are choosing to age in place, more home care agencies are providing home health care services to help seniors continue to live comfortably in their own homes.
If you have an elderly family member in Lisle, IL or the surrounding area who wants to age in place, Assisting Hands Home Care – Chicago can help with our in-home health care services.
