Even though people are living longer lives than ever before, our bodies and minds still slow down as we age. This can make it difficult for senior citizens to continue living in their own homes without some sort of help. As a result, increasing numbers of seniors are turning to elderly care services to receive assistance throughout the day. At Assisting Hands Home Care, we provide these services to seniors in Norridge, IL to help them continue living comfortably in their homes.
Informal Caregiving Services v. Professional Caregiving Services
Many children of aging adults take on the role of informal caregiver. In fact, over 65 million Americans currently care for a loved one in need. The problem with this approach is that about 25% of them report that they are in poor health. This is largely attributed to stress, lack of sleep, and the additional work that is piled on to all of their other duties (many of these individuals are parents themselves and have careers to worry about).
When you hire a professional caregiving agency, you have the flexibility to live your life, but give your loved one the high-quality care that they deserve. For example, at Assisting Hands Home Care, we have a wealth of highly trained caregivers and we provide customizable care plans based on your loved one’s requirements. This means that your loved one will receive topnotch, attentive care whenever they need it. All of our caregivers are licensed and bonded to provide effective and compassionate senior care services.
