Assisting Hands respite care services provides the “We Care” program for family members who are caregivers for their loved ones. Our compassionate in home care focuses on the patient rather than the disease and our caregivers are skilled in helping the family and friends with supplementary personal and homemaker services so that they can spend quality time with their loved one. Services include shopping, errands, meal preparation, bathing, light housekeeping, and transportation.
Respite Care provides short-term, temporary relief to those who are caring for family members who might otherwise require permanent placement in a facility outside the home. Even though many family members don’t mind taking care of their loved one, the physical, emotional and financial consequences for the family caregiver can be overwhelming without some support, such as Assisting Hands Home Care. We provide a break for the family caregiver, which may prove beneficial to the health of the caregiver. Studies show that 60% of family caregivers age 19-64 surveyed recently by the Commonwealth Fund reported fair or poor health, one ore more chronic conditions, or a disability, compared with only 33% of non caregivers.
