For Your Peace of Mind
Many children of seniors in Naperville are looking for quality live-in care that they can trust for their elderly parents.
These seniors often do not need the onsite medical care of a nursing home, and yet they need daily ongoing assistance in their Naperville-area homes. And they prefer living at home.
And you can see why. Naperville was ranked as the best place to live in the country for early retirement by Kiplinger in 2013, and the second-best place to live by Money magazine in 2006. It is also regarded as among America’s safest cities by USA Today and Business Insider.
Looking for a Live-In Caregiver in Naperville?
There are certain key differences in comparing live-in home care and 24-hour care. First of all, live-in care usually involves one caregiver who stays all the time with the senior. This person sleeps in the home. While their eight hours of sleep is considered a break, they are on hand for any immediate need on the part of the senior. Billing is made on a flat per-day rate.
On the other hand, 24-hour care involves a minimum of two caregivers, and the work shifts of caregivers are typically 8 or 12 hours long. Billing is made on an hourly basis.
Safe at Home Health Care provides both live-in and hourly care from 30 hours per week up to 24-hour care where we have caregivers for two 12-hour shifts.
Our Live-In Care is a cost-effective plan that provides constant home care for loved ones. Live-in caregivers reside with the client to service all the client’s home care needs on a daily basis. Our caregivers adjust to the client’s schedule and provide all non-medical home care needs in order to provide the highest level of satisfaction to the client as well as peace of mind for the family.
