What is Hospice Care at Home
At Assisting Hands Home Care, we offer in-home hospice care services to help your loved one live out their remaining days in the comfort of their own home.
We work with family members to customize our home care plans and we provide this care with the utmost respect and compassion. We understand that situations involving limited life expectancy and terminal illnesses are never easy.
To provide you with greater peace of mind, and to ensure effective care, we offer part-time and full-time caregiving services based on the affected individual’s needs.
We provide these services to residents of Hoffman Estates, IL, and the surrounding areas and we can accept long term care insurance to help pay for hospice care.
End of Life Care
Hospice care is the care administered to individuals with limited life expectancies and terminal illnesses. They are customized based on what the patient needs and allow the affected individual to live out their days in as much comfort and dignity as possible.
In most cases, the ability for these individuals to remain at home is a major benefit. The familiar environment, proximity to loved ones, and other factors all contribute to a more positive experience.
These services also ease the burden of family members who may not be able to provide effective care around the clock themselves.
Our Assisting Hands Home Care caregivers are trained and certified to provide effective and compassionate hospice care services. They do everything in their power to ensure your loved one is as comfortable and pain-free as possible while they receive needed care.
Each caregiver is bonded and insured to provide these services. We offer the services of both male and female caregiving professionals to better address your needs and preferences.
How We Can Help
The first thing that we do when providing our hospice care services is meet with you and the affected individual in their home to develop an appropriate care plan.
