"Before we contacted Companion Services of America we were concerned about the safety and welbeing of our loved ones. Now we are able to live our own lives more normally and we are considerably less stressed. My mother had a wonderful companion in Tess, and Arnor. Rodel developered a solid relationship with my stepfather, which was not easy! We are thankful to have had the help and support of Companion Serivces of America for 8 years."

"We have used other agencies in the past and none compare to Companion Care. Jamie the owner is always responsive and manages to pull rabbits out of a hat to solving problems. The caregiver team has been extraordinary in being proactive and thinking ahead of my mother, which is not easy to do. The team respects her and knows the rhythm of engaging and giving her space. The team is also qualified and vigilant to watch for medical signs that could be harmful. I recommend Jamie, Mary and our caregiver team with high marks!"
What Is Private Duty Home Care?
When your loved one needs assistance in the comfort of their own home to stay independent, our private duty home care services in the Deerfield, IL area, can be a valuable tool. Allowing the patient to stay at home in their familiar surroundings with a senior caregiver is a gift they will appreciate.
We provide an experienced caregiver who will go above the call of duty to provide services that your loved-one needs to stay within their place of residence with comfort and ease.
Private duty home care is a service provided to seniors in need of support with everyday activities in the comfort of their own home. We pair the elderly individual with a private duty home caregiver, who visits the home to assist with activities such as light meal preparation, housekeeping, errands and personal hygiene needs. These caregivers can also provide friendship to the seniors and much-needed respite care to family members who typically care for their loved ones on an ongoing basis.
A distinctive aspect of private care is support for the individual in carrying out Activities of Daily Living (ADLs). These activities include personal hygiene, dressing, bathing, etc. The caregivers possess the necessary know-how to safely transfer the client in the process of these activities and offer mobility assistance.
Private duty home caregivers allow the senior to safely live in their home and enjoy the independence of doing so. Private duty home care includes transportation services for the elderly to visit places they wish. We provide our clients with compassionate caregivers who attend carefully to each senior they care for. In the process, they foster deep, caring relationships for one another through ongoing conversations.
These companionships often last for extended periods of time, as the caregiver and senior form a friendship and bond that becomes more familiar and comfortable with time. These companionships are important in helping to reduce the risk of senior isolation.
What are the Duties of a Private Caregiver?
Our private duty home care aides are the first level caregivers that offer private duty, non-medical home care services to our clients. The types of services they provide each client depends on the individualized need of each senior. Our home care services include:

Regardless of your loved one's private duty home care needs, we will be there with you every step of the way. Our team of private duty nurses care deeply about our clients and their loved ones. The best private duty home care services are ones in which the caregiver connects with their client and provides the best quality care possible.
