It is never easy for families to receive the news that one of their loved ones has a terminal illness or limited life expectancy.
This type of diagnosis is hard for families to accept, and the situation it creates is often highly stressful for the family and the individual with the terminal illness.
If there is not a clearly drawn out plan or will explaining what to do in this scenario, the family may have a difficult time coordinating care and handling the end of life affairs of their loved one.
Fortunately, Assisting Hands Home Care can help with our hospice care services.
What is End of Life Care?
Hospice care is the care given to people who have been diagnosed with limited life expectancy or a terminal illness. Assisting Hands Home Care provides hospice care services in Schaumburg, IL, to help care for those who have limited life expectancy and allow them to live out their final days with a sense of dignity.
Often times terminally ill individuals prefer to spend their final days at home surrounded by their immediate family and friends instead of a nursing home or assisted living facility where they barely know someone. This puts a lot of pressure on the family member who needs to take care of that person round the clock and that’s where we come in.
Our trained caregivers will ensure that your loved ones are as comfortable and as pain-free as possible with a personalized care plan that covers their unique needs. These services will also help relieve some of the stress on you and your family so you can visit with your loved ones and handle other necessary matters.

We strive to accomplish the same with our hospice care services, keeping your loved ones comfortable so they can live and pass peacefully in their home.
