Many families wish that they can have someone in the home of their elderly loved ones to keep them company throughout the day. However, it is often simply not possible for this to happen. There are so many responsibilities in life that families may have a difficult time checking up on their elderly relatives each day. This can make it especially difficult if your senior loved ones are ill or have recently had surgery and could use some extra help around the home. If your elderly loved ones could benefit from having some additional help for a period of time, due to illness, surgery, or another reason, our caregivers at Assisting Hands Home Care – Chicago can help.
At Assisting Hands Home Care – Chicago, we provide elderly sitter services in Naperville, IL to help senior citizens who need additional assistance in their homes. Our caregivers will come to the home of your loved ones to provide non-medical in-home care while they recover from an illness or surgery. We are trained to provide effective in-home care and our personable caregivers will also be good company for your loved ones.
Why Elderly Sitter Services?
Most of the time, people use our sitter services to help someone after they have had surgery, but this is not the only reason. If you have a senior relative who could benefit from the presence of a caregiver for any reason, we can help. Our caregivers can come to the home of your loved one for a few hours a day up to 24 hours to provide care and assistance. Our sitter services can be used on a short-term or long-term basis which will be determined by the care needs of your loved ones.
If your loved one is in the hospital for an illness or surgery, our caregivers can accompany them in the hospital and help provide care when they return home. We will arrive at scheduled times to give you and your family members some time to deal with personal matters while we keep an eye on your loved ones. Giving you and your family time to tend to personal matters will make it easier for you to provide care for your loved ones and tend to their needs when you return.
Each of our caregivers at Assisting Hands Home Care – Chicago are trained, bonded, and insured to provide your loved ones with effective care in their homes. We are also available 24 hours a day to cover any hours in which your loved ones need assistance. Our sitter services will lessen your burden so you can take care of personal matters and free your loved ones from various tasks such as housekeeping, meal preparation, and transportation to allow them to recover. In fact, those who do not attempt these tasks when recovering from an illness or surgery often have faster recovery times. We will make sure that the caregiver we assign is highly qualified and will be a companion to your loved ones as well as their caregiver.
We can provide our elderly sitter services within these facilities:
- Nursing homes
- Assisted living centers
- Hospitals/ medical facilities
- Continuing care retirement communities (CCRC)
Seniors in these facilities may not receive the one-on-one care that they need from the staff who are responsible for all the residents or patients. Having one of our caregivers in these facilities with your loved ones will provide you with additional peace of mind knowing that they are getting the intimate care that they need.
Our elderly sitter services have the following benefits:
- Companion and caregiver: Our caregiver will not only provide care and assistance for your elderly relatives, but also keep them company. We will talk with your loved ones to get to know them as we help them through the day and make sure they take their medication and do whatever else is necessary for their recovery.
- Peace of mind: You and the rest of your family can rest easier knowing that your loved ones are in the hands of our highly qualified caregivers. You will be able to keep up with your personal life and spend quality time with your loved ones knowing that we are there to provide assistance.
- Start of home care services: If you and your elderly loved ones find our care useful, we can add to our sitter services and provide ongoing in-home care. We create in-home care plans based on the specific needs of your loved ones.
