One of the most difficult things about aging is losing the ability to accomplish day-to-day tasks independently. Whether it is due to physical or mental limitations, the need for caregiving services can be a real shock. At Assisting Hands Home Care, we do everything we can to make this transition as painless as possible through our senior in-home care services. We apply a customizable approach in order to help with tasks that are actually needed and strive to build relationships in the process. We offer these services to seniors in Chicago, IL.
The Benefits of In-Home Care
The greatest benefit to receiving in-home care is the sense of independence that can be partially maintained. Instead of going through the process of selling property and moving to a retirement home, our caregivers give you the opportunity to grow old in the comfort of your own home. This reduces the shock factor of needing senior care services and is particularly beneficial for those struggling with memory loss.
Comprehensive Caregiving Services
At Assisting Hands Home Care, we provide full-service in-home care to address non-medical needs. This means that we can help you with all of your general, day-to-day needs. We are able to do this thanks to the quality of our caregivers, their extensive training, and their genuine desire to assist our clients. As we stated above, our senior in-home care services are customizable based on your unique requirements. For a more detailed outline of the services we can provide, please see below:
- Bathing assistance (and general help with grooming and personal hygiene)
- Meal preparation and eating assistance
- Help with moving around the home (e.g. getting out of bed, getting up from chairs, walking across the room, etc.)
- Assistance with getting dressed in the morning and at night
- Help with using the restroom
- Incontinence care
- Light housekeeping services (e.g. dusting, mopping, washing dishes, vacuuming, etc.)
- Assistance with running general errands (e.g. picking up groceries and medications, delivering mail, driving to and from doctor’s appointments, etc.)
As we stated above, building relationships is a big part of our caregiving philosophy. Accepting in-home care is much easier when a trusted companion is performing the services. Our caregivers will partake in hobbies and activities that your loved one enjoys and will keep them mentally and physically engaged throughout the day. This is a great benefit for seniors battling loneliness, depression, memory loss, and similar difficulties.
