24-Hour Live In Care
In addition to hourly come and go services, Home Instead Senior Care of Skokie and Park Ridge also offers 24 hour around the clock care.
The most common form of live-in care consists of one caregiver in the home with your loved one around the clock. During the daytime hours, the caregiver will assist your loved one with the variety of services that Home Instead Senior Care offers. This includes companionship, bathing and dressing assistance, light housekeeping laundry and meal preparation.
Since this caregiver will be working during the daytime hours, it is understood they need to get their rest at night. On occasion, a client may wake and need assistance, but it's important for the caregiver to get enough sleep at night so they can perform to the best of their ability during the day. With live-in care services, one main caregiver is usually in the home for 5 days per week, and a fill-in caregiver will work the remaining days.
Occasionally, situations will arise when live-in care is not sufficient to meet the needs of a client. Some examples would be:
- If the client wakes repeatedly at night
- If the family prefers a caregiver be awake at night with the client
- A bed-side sitter in a hospital or a facility is needed
- The client has a difficult situation that is not easily handled by one person.
In these cases, we offer a service known as shift work. Shift work still ensures 24 hour care for the client, but instead is done with two caregivers per day who each work a 12 hour shift.
Regardless of what your needs are for 24 hour live-in care, our qualified and dedicated caregivers will be able to assist you.
It's easy to get started with our complimentary initial consultation. Please call us at 847.673.1250. We look forward to working with you soon.
