When families get the news that a loved one has been diagnosed with limited life expectancy or a terminal illness, it can be difficult to process and to accept. Such news can easily cause families and the affected individual stress. If a plan has not been developed to address such a scenario, then it can be tough to figure out end-of-life affairs and coordinate care.
Assisting Hands Home Care is available to assist with the hospice care services that we offer in Des Plaines, IL, and the neighboring areas. Our goal is to keep your loved ones comfortable so they can live their remaining days with dignity. With our licensed caregivers providing your loved ones with care, you will be able to visit with your loved ones and handle their end of life affairs.
What is End-of-Life Care?
Hospice care, also known as end-of-life care, is the type of care individuals with a terminal illness or limited life expectancy receive to help keep them comfortable and pain free. At Assisting Hands Home Care, we help individuals with limited life expectancy or a terminal illness live with dignity during their final days.
Usually, terminally ill patients want to be at home surrounded by loved ones during their final days instead of in an assisted living facility or nursing home where they are amongst strangers. However, family members may feel pressured into taking care of their terminally ill loved ones themselves. Our caregivers provide the care your loved ones need while you spend time handling more pressing affairs.
About Our Caregivers
Our caregivers are well trained and will make sure your loved ones are cared for through an individualized care plan developed just for them. Additionally, we make sure they feel as comfortable and pain-free as possible. With our services, family members are free to spend time with their loved ones and take care of other affairs as necessary instead of providing the care themselves.
At Assisting Hands Home Care, the purpose of our home health care services is to make sure clients get the support and assistance they need within the comfort of their own homes. The same can be said for our hospice care services. We want your loved ones to live and pass in their home in a peaceful manner. Furthermore, you can trust our caregivers, who are highly trained, to be compassionate with the quality care they provide your loved ones.
Hospice Care at Home
To begin our hospice care services, we come to your loved one’s home and work with the family to develop a care plan customized to the client’s needs. Once that has been created, we provide non-medical help to make sure the client is comfortable.
Our caregivers are always compassionate and dignified with our services, which can include the following tasks:
- Personal hygiene help: bathing, bathroom use, getting dressed
- Light housekeeping assistance: laundry, dusting, and more
- Daily meal preparation
- Medication reminders
- Quality, compassionate one-on-one care
If you have a relative who has a terminal illness or limited life expectancy, Assisting Hands Home Care can help with our hospice care services. A caregiver will provide your loved one with the quality care needed to live their final days with dignity before passing peacefully.
