Home Care Illinois

If you’re in need of an Illinois home care worker and you’re new to the world of senior care, you may have already discovered that there are two kinds of home-based care:  Home Care Helpers and Home Care Nurses (which provide Nursing services).

A Home Care Helper is typically provided by a certified nurse’s assistant (CNA), who can assist with everyday basic tasks, such as cleaning, cooking, and helping mom dress, bathe, and use the bathroom.

These kinds of homemaker services agencies may or may not be licensed depending on the agency, and whether they are following the specified requirements of Illinois.
