The essence of home is to feel safe in an environment where you have the ability to control and enjoy your experiences. While aging can lead to reduced physical abilities, that can make maintaining a home difficult and even unsafe, Assisting Hands Home Care can facilitate your desire to remain at home. If your loved one lives in Montgomery County MD or Northern Fairfax County VA, we can provide home safety evaluations and our skilled caregivers can provide assistance with meal preparation, help with bathing, medication reminders, laundry and light housekeeping, and can provide companionship to help make aging in place possible. Take a look at the some of the most requested services we provide on the companionship page of our website.
Why Age at Home?
As “baby boomers” began to officially reach retirement age, the increased need for senior in home care became a national discussion. In the past, families were faced with few choices when their senior loved ones needed care. Fortunately, clinicians and other healthcare professionals have recognized the health and well-being benefits to receiving care while remaining in the comfort of home. Senior in home care is finally being celebrated as the preferred option for many.
