In-Home Hospice Care So Your Loved Ones Can Live Their Final Days with Dignity
We employ experienced caregivers who will assist terminally ill patients to help keep them comfortable and help any family caregivers who are also providing care.
Finding out that a loved one has limited life expectancy, or a terminal illness like cancer is difficult to handle and accept, and it can be stressful for the affected individual and his/her family.
If a well-developed plan hasn’t been created to address what should be done in such a situation, families may struggle to coordinate care and handle end-of-life affairs for their loved one.
With our hospice care services, Assisting Hands Rolling Meadows can help handle the care of your loved one while you spend time with them and help get their end-of-life affairs in order. If your loved one has long term care insurance, this can help pay for our hospice care.
What is End-of-Life Care?
Hospice care is care for individuals who have a terminal illness or have been diagnosed with limited life expectancy. At Assisting Hands Rolling Meadows, we provide hospice care services to assist such individuals to make sure they can live their last days with dignity.
Usually, terminally ill patients want to be at home during their final days with friends and family as opposed to the unfamiliar environment within an assisted living facility. This, however, can be stressful for family caregivers, but this is where we can help.
Assisting Hands employs well trained caregivers who will help create and follow a customized care plan that addresses the needs of your loved ones, ensuring their comfort. Additionally, these services will help lessen any burdens that you and your family have, letting you all spend time with your loved one and take care of other affairs.
The purpose of our home health care services is to guarantee that the clients we work with are able to comfortably age within their homes and have the help they need. The same goes for our hospice care services; we make sure your loved ones are comfortable and will be able to peacefully pass at home.
We employ skilled caregivers who have undergone the training necessary to provide the quality, compassionate hospice care your loved one needs, and your family can rely on.
