Individuals with physical or mental limitations (such as seniors, those with disabilities, and those recovering from a surgery) can benefit from home health care services. At Assisting Hands Home Care, we offer these services to residents of Norridge, IL. Through these services, we help people in need get through their days safely in the comfort of their own homes. We work with these individuals, as well as their family members, to develop an appropriate care plan based on their unique requirements. We address non-medical needs such as assistance with personal activities, cooking, cleaning, getting around the home, and similar everyday tasks.
The Benefits of Caregiving Agencies
When searching for caregiving services, there are three typical paths that are taken:
- A family member provides informal care
- An individual caregiver is hired to provide professional care
- A caregiving agency is hired to provide professional care
Each method has pros and cons, and one method may fit your needs better than the others. However, in most cases, working with a caregiving agency is the best option. Statistics show that roughly 25% of individuals who provide informal care report poor health for themselves. This is largely because of the additional working hours required, increased stress, and lack of sleep. Hiring an individual caregiver can work when limited services are required, or when you find somebody that you trust. The problem is you are responsible for any emergency rescheduling and need to hire and fire these individuals when necessary. When you work with an agency, you have a greater number of caregivers to choose from, and they are typically trained more thoroughly in various caregiving services.
