Timed Services

One Hour Visits

Our one hour visit service is designed for a client who has a limited number of tasks that can be performed within approximately one hour.

This is sometimes called a wake-up or tuck-in visit because of the typical times it is needed.

For example, a client may just need a caregiver to come in the morning, wake them up, help them bathe and dress, remind them to take medications, fix an easy breakfast and then tidy up the work areas before they leave.

Or perhaps some extra help is needed getting to bed at night or simply a companion to come for lunch and take the client for a walk.

Any combination of tasks that can be reasonably completed with an hour time frame is appropriate for this service.

  • $55 per visit
  • Rates include caregiver, case manager and 24-hour phone support

Hourly Service

An hourly caregiver works a minimum of four hours up to a maximum of twelve hours per shift per day.

  • Schedules are tailored to fit the client's needs.
  • When a caregiver is needed 24 hours, it is provided by two caregivers in 12-hour shifts and may require four caregivers to cover a full week.
  • No client will be billed overtime without prior approval.
  • Services can be cancelled at any time with 24 hours notice.
  • Rates include caregiver, clinical case manager and 24-hour phone support.

Please call 847-256-1705 for current rates.

Additional Expenses


If the caregiver employs their own vehicle in service to the client, the standard rate of 55 cents per mile is billed to the client. If the caregiver uses the client's vehicle, there is no additional expense. It is recommended that the client review their auto policy to ensure that additional drivers are covered.
