At Assisting Hands Home Care, our caregivers provide in-home care services to help elderly individuals and adults with disabilities live safely at home in Mokena, IL and the surrounding areas (See All Service Areas). Our professionals will meet with your loved one to understand their needs and develop a home care plan to help them live safely and independently at home.
With the increase in the number of elderly citizens choosing to age in place, the demand for home health aides has increased significantly. This option has grown increasingly popular due to the ability for seniors who receive care at home to have more control of their lives.
Typically, senior citizens will need assistance as they age, such as help with cooking, transportation, light housekeeping and more. Our in-home caregivers specialize in providing non-medical health care services to allow them to live safely at home.
