Assisting Hands Home Care is a respite care provider that helps family caregivers who take care of elderly or disabled relatives in Hinsdale, Naperville, Downers Grove, and the surrounding areas in DuPage and Cook counties (See All Service Areas). Our caregivers will provide quality care for your loved ones in relief of the family caregiver.
Family members generally feel an obligation to step in and help when a relative needs care. While many see this as their duty to help their relatives, it might not be realistic to be the only caregiver. Being a full-time family caregiver is demanding and it can be difficult for the family caregiver as well as their relatives.
Family caregivers will prioritize the well-being of the relative they are caring for over their own. This, in combination with the lack of sleep and high stress levels that are common among family caregivers, can lead to mental and physical health issues. It is important for family caregivers to take time off, but they often feel guilty leaving their loved ones.
At Assisting Hands Home Care, we provide in-home respite care services to help family caregivers in Hinsdale, IL and the surrounding areas in DuPage and Cook counties. Our insured and licensed caregivers will arrive at scheduled times to take over the care for your loved ones and allow the family caregiver to take time off.
Senior Respite Care
Our respite care services allow the family caregiver to take some time off while your loved one is in the care of our professional caregivers. The following statistics show why it is important for family caregivers to find some time off from providing care:
- More than 65 million Americans act as an informal caregiver for their loved ones
- Women account for two-thirds of informal caregivers
- Approximately one-fourth of family caregivers have health problems of their own
The high stress levels and lack of sleep that are the result of a demanding schedule can lead to physical and mental health issues for the family caregiver. Many family caregivers report poor health and it is common for them to be affected by depression. The time spent providing care can also take a toll on their personal lives as family caregivers often must put their careers on hold and they will have less time to spend with their children.
