Our caregivers will care for your loved one like family. And that's a good feeling to know they're in compassionate hands.
Typically, a big reason in-home care is preferred is the cost savings over an assisted living facility or nursing home, when you or your loved one doesn't require constant monitoring or around the clock medical care. It's a truly affordable way to provide comfort for all those involved. And the little secret about in-home care that you'll never hear from an assisted living facility or nursing home: one on one, individual care. This means you or your loved one will have a helpful companion at hand.
It may interest you to know what are the most common reasons people seek in-home care for seniors. Take a quick read to see if any of them resonate with your need for caregiving:
Give me a break
I'm a family caregiver who needs respite care once in a while.
My aging parents need a little extra help
My parents are showing signs of aging and need some help with everyday living a few days a week.
Broken bones from a fall
My dad broke his hip and needs in-home care for meals, bathing, dressing and getting around.
Although my mom is in assisted living, she needs around the clock care for a few weeks since she fell and broke her hip.
My mom has Alzheimer's and needs 24 hour in home care.
My dad has dementia and needs daily help at home for meals, med dosing, light housekeeping, etc.only in the late afternoons until bedtime.
Live in care, 24/7
My elderly parents need live in help, around the clock.
Companionship: My mom is lonely
My elderly dad passed away a few months ago and my mom is extremely lonely. She needs a few days of companion care each week for conversation, playing cards, etc.,to boost morale. Something she can look forward to.
Dignity or is it strong-willed?
My very proud, 87 year old mother refuses to leave her home for an assisted living community. She did agree to have a caregiver come over daily to help her with everyday living---maybe five hours a day.
Feeling guilty for not able to visit often as you'd like
I live hours from my elderly parents and am worried about them. I need someone to look in on them, assess their lifestyle and help me with a care plan---then I might sleep at night.
My elderly father has a chronic illness and requires in-home care and errand running.
Errands and transportation
My elderly aunt needs transportation, help and supervision while at dialysis.
After hospital/surgery home care
My wife just had surgery and the doctor said she'd heal faster with surgical aftercare at home.

In-home care is a cost-effective way for loved ones recuperating from a hospital stay or who, because of a functional or cognitive disability, are unable to fully take care of themselves, but do not require medical attention. The need for medical attention is the differential when making the decision to use home care or a facility.
The beauty of in-home care is that it reinforces and supports care provided by family members and friends, while your loved one maintains their dignity and independence---and morale.
If you are coordinating caregiving from out-of-town, knowing that you have the best in-home care in Schaumburg, IL for your loved one, is the peace of mind that lets you sleep at night. We are there when you aren't able to be.
We set expectations with you so that all of your loved one's needs are met or exceeded. Once this has been established, communication is key so that everyone involved knows what the patient and caregiver did each day, including notes from doctor appointments, general disposition, any signs of trouble and any other pertinent information.
Something that a nursing home or assisted living facility won't ever tell you about home care is this: with in-home care, your loved one gets one-on-one care. In a home or facility, your loved one might have a caregiver to patient ratio of care closer to eight-to-one.
Often, adult children struggle with breaking the news to their aging parent(s) that they need in-home care. We work with you to help smooth out that transition. In fact, this is a great read about having that conversation with your parents---it may even be worse than having "the talk" with your teenagers!
You probably have several questions by now and we'd love to answer them. Go ahead. Call us now at 630-237-4460 and let us help you get control of a tough situation and get your life back on track.
