Home Care Palatine, IL
We are a licensed home agency, which means there are a number of built-in benefits you as a potential client will receive when working with us. Let’s first take a look at common alternatives:
- Informal Home Care Services: This care is provided by a loved one. About 65 million Americans provide these services, and roughly 25% report they are in poor health. This is because of the added stressors involved with caring for a loved one while still taking care of other day-to-day responsibilities (such as providing for immediate family members and going to work).
- Professional Care Provided by an Individual: Individual caregivers are helpful, but they have a disadvantage: they are only one person. If they need to cancel, you will be left scrambling to find a replacement. You are also responsible for hiring and firing these caregivers.
When working with a home care agency, there are a number of qualified caregivers from which to choose, not having to worry about rescheduling, and your loved ones can benefit from a variety of services.
