At Assisting Hands Home Care, it is our mission to provide elderly care in a comprehensive and compassionate manner. Our services prioritize both our customers’ safety and the preservation of their dignity during the execution of activities of daily living.
In addition to our caregiving services delivered in the comfort of our clients’ homes, we provide assistance to coordinate the full spectrum of elder care services available in the community to help secure the best possible outcomes for our customers’ health and well-being.
Care starts with a free nurse assessment, which ultimately results in a plan of care.
- When you are ready, a nurse conducts a structured interview to identify your care needs in the comfort of your home.
- There is no sales pressure. If you prefer to start only with the nurse assessment, a care consultant will schedule a visit when it is convenient for you and you are comfortable to discuss the next steps with Assisting Hands.
We don’t take quality for granted – we inspect it. Assisting Hands nurses and staff members regularly visit clients’ homes to assess evolving health and service conditions. The visits offer us valuable opportunities to adjust service details, refine plans of care, assess a client’s changing health situation, act immediately on client concerns, and provide reports to family members or authorized representatives.
Here is a list of some of the other ways that home care can help our senior customers:
- Personal care – home care aides can assist in many ways with hygiene, personal care and daily restroom routines. If you need help, they can assist with using the bathroom, getting up and down from the toilet, or getting in and out of the tub or shower. This might seem embarrassing in the beginning, but our aides are trained and very experienced with these sorts of tasks, gradually turning external assistance into a common aspect of your daily life.
- Kitchen chores – depending on your degree of mobility, home health aides can act as assistants in the kitchen or carry out the entire processes of meal preparation and serving and, if necessary, assistance with eating. As appetite declines due to infirmity or advanced age, aides play a crucial role to ensure that seniors ingest adequate amounts of food and liquids.
- Mobility support – a large number of home health aides are hired because a senior finds it difficult or unsafe to move around the house on their own. Caregivers help prevent falls, which are among the highest causes of sudden hospitalization among the elderly, and assist with basic physiotherapy routines and strength exercises.
- Less stress – crucially, caregivers help decrease stress in the household. If you know that there is someone assisting your loved one, you don’t have to worry so much about their well-being, and you can take the time to enjoy things with them and the rest of the family. Your aging loved one might be less stressed as well, because they will be able to enjoy a more comfortable lifestyle.
