Living in an unfamiliar environment, and being cared for by unfamiliar faces, can be difficult for individuals struggling with advanced memory loss. This is why we offer in-home Alzheimer’s and dementia care services here at Assisting Hands.
We act as a critical line of support for families who may not be able to care for a loved one in need as much as they would like to. Our caregivers assist with day-to-day tasks, chores around the home, transportation, and memory-preservation exercises. If one of your family members has been diagnosed with a degenerative disease or disability, we encourage you to give us a call. We currently offer assistance to families in Harwood Heights, IL, and surrounding areas.
