As Baby Boomers age, they have created a new demand for in-home caregiving services. People want to stay in their own homes for as long as possible, and this is a much lower cost option than a nursing home, especially when they only need help with small things like grocery shopping or light housekeeping. More specialized in-home care is available for those who require it, such as hospice care, Alzheimer’s and dementia care, and other types of skilled nursing.
If an older loved one has been injured, undergone surgery, or experienced a serious illness, they may not be able to manage day-to-day activities for a period of time. The skilled caregivers at Assisting Hands Home Care provide extra help when needed for any kind of daily activities, such as helping with dressing or errands, long- or short-term. One of our skilled, carefully screened caregivers can be in your home in Bal Harbour, FL within 48 hours of your call.

Assisting Hands Home Care provides caring, compassionate hospice care to help keep loved ones comfortable and pain-free as much as possible.

When someone needs assistance around the home, it’s usually another member of the family who steps in to help. While this may have worked well in previous generations, it’s more difficult now because more people work outside the home or have more demands on their schedules. It’s hard to take care of personal business when juggling work, a loved one’s medical needs, and a family. Assisting Hands Home Care offers respite care services to give caregivers time to take care of personal matters, like their own doctors’ appointments, business meetings, or vacations. Our caregivers will work with you to create a schedule and care plan that continues your loved one’s care without interruptions.
It’s vital to ensure a consistent level of specialized care for people with Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia to protect their safety and well-being. An inexperienced caregiver might be distracted for a moment and a patient can leave the home unattended. Depending on the weather outside, that can be a small, yet life-threatening mistake. The caregivers at Assisting Hands Home Care have received special training and know how to manage cases of Alzheimer’s and dementia. We help your loved ones get the specialized care they need and work with them to improve their memories through engaging activities.
Recovering from surgery is difficult for anyone, but it’s more complicated for the elderly who may be more susceptible to complications or setbacks.

We monitor medication dosages, assist with meals, and oversee the recovery process so families can be sure that their loved ones are safe and will recover completely.
Caring for an elderly relative is a great way to help them remain comfortable in their own homes, but it is difficult for family caregivers to cover the night time.

We provide overnight care services in Bal Harbour, FL that include help getting ready for bed as well as attentive care through the night.
