Caring for Aging Relatives
To request home care or learn more about Palos Community Hospital’s Home Health Care services, call us at (630) 257-1111. We’re available 24/7 to residents of Cook, Will, Kendall and DuPage counties.
As your parents and other loved ones age, caring for them may become more challenging—especially if you work and raise children, too. Turn to Palos Community Hospital’s Home Health Care program for help. You’ll benefit from compassionate professionals who can empathize with you, share advice and offer support to both you and your relative.
Does My Loved One Need Home Care?
Your aging relatives might benefit from ongoing home care if they:
- Can’t drive or navigate public transportation to visit the doctor
- Have fallen at home or face difficulties climbing stairs and moving around the house
- Need help caring for themselves, including getting dressed, showering, preparing food or completing basic housework
- Show signs of serious memory loss, including getting lost in familiar environments, asking the same questions repeatedly or growing confused about time, people and places
Talk to your aging relatives and other family members about your concerns. When you’re ready to arrange a home care consultation, call us at 630-257-1111.
Rely on Our Expertise
Trust us to care for your parent who has special needs. Our highly trained registered nurses and certified nursing assistants have years of experience working with people who face mental health difficulties, such as depression or Alzheimer’s disease.
Attentive and Available 24/7
Ask about our advanced telemonitoring technology that Palos nurses use to track your loved one’s health throughout the day. Rest assured, a registered nurse is available around the clock to consult with when you need assistance.
If your relative isn’t expected to recover from an illness, we’ll help your loved one stay as comfortable as possible and facilitate the transition to hospice care when the time is right. You benefit most from caregivers you know and trust, so your home care nurse’s aide will also tend to you in hospice.
