Ranked as one of the best places to live in Illinois, and one of the top places in the U.S. to raise children, the bedroom community of Wilmette offers so much to the older adults who call it home: safety, security, and a small-town feel where neighbors are like family. And when a little assistance with aging is needed, Custom Home Care’s Wilmette in-home care for seniors adds an extra measure of comfort.
When older adults are no longer able to drive, or prefer to leave the driving to someone else, our escorted transportation services fit the bill nicely. With our friendly companions, seniors are able to continue enjoying all that the community of Wilmette and beyond have to offer. On warm, sunny days, nothing beats a stroll through Gillson Park or the beautiful Keay Nature Center, perhaps with a packed picnic lunch in tow. A fascinating destination to take a step back in time and learn something new is the Wilmette Historical Museum. Or how about an afternoon of pampering at the Wilmette Massage Center? Whatever a senior’s interest, we’re on hand to help make it a reality!
Additionally, our Wilmette in-home care for seniors includes a wide range of personalized services particular to each person’s unique needs. For example, we can assist with:
- Light housecleaning tasks
- Washing and ironing laundry
- Safe mobility, ambulation and exercise programs
- Personal care needs
- Companionship and conversation
- Meal planning and preparation
- Medication reminders
- Running errands
- Specialized Alzheimer’s and dementia care
- And more
Each senior in our care is a precious individual, and we take the time to get to know what’s important to him or her. Is the person outgoing, or more reserved? What favorite pastimes, hobbies and interests are enjoyed? What are some of his or her favorite memories, accomplishments, goals? We take all of this into consideration to create the perfect caregiver match, with someone who has not only been meticulously background checked, interviewed, and trained, but who shares similar likes and dislikes – resulting in a lasting bond that allows for enhanced socialization and a higher quality of life.
Our Unique Approach to Alzheimer’s Care
Alzheimer’s and dementia care requires a special touch and a higher level of training and experience. At Custom Home Care, we ensure that each of our Alzheimer’s caregivers has been thoroughly trained by a Positive Approach to Care (PAC) trainer, ensuring that those with dementia receive the most advanced level of care possible. Our respite care services are perfect for families caring for a loved one with dementia at home, particularly if sundowning is a factor, allowing family caregivers a restful night’s sleep knowing their loved one is safe and protected throughout the night.
