Senior Home Health Care
The senior home care program provides residents with a number of helpful services in the comfort of their own home at Friendship Village. Not your typical elderly home care service, you can receive nursing care at home with medication management, medication reminders, nursing visits and companion care at Chicago's leading senior living retirement community.
A registered nurse visits every week to prepare your weekly regimen of prescribed medications. The nurse also monitors for side-effects, orders re-fills and makes sure you always have access to your current list of medications.
Home care aides are available seven days a week to assist you in taking your medications on schedule.
Nurses are available to carry out doctor's orders in your home. They can deliver B12 or other injections, provide blood glucose monitoring, blood pressure checks, professional assessments and other services that may save you a visit to the doctor's office or lab.
Bathing, Dressing and Personal Care
Senior home health care aides provide assistance getting safely in and out of the tub or shower, as well as other personal care needs. They’re also trained to assist with some medical needs including glucose monitoring, collecting lab specimens, blood pressure checks or wellness checks.
Catheter or Ostomy Care
Acting under a doctor's order, one of our licensed nurses can provide daily maintenance of an ostomy or other equipment. We can also provide help with an in-dwelling catheter, including changing or emptying of a catheter bag.
If you could use some help getting around Friendship Village, just call a home care aide. They’ll provide you with safe transportation — whether by a wheelchair or accompanying you as you walk — to the physician center, restaurants, salon, bank, convenience store — or other Friendship Village location.
