In-Home Hospice Care So Your Loved Ones Can Live Their Final Days with Dignity
At Assisting Hands Home Care, we offer both part-time and full-time hospice care services for individuals in the Chicago, IL, area who have been diagnosed with limited life expectancy or a terminal illness.
Our caregivers assist these patients by taking care of them and ensuring they are as comfortable and pain free as possible.
Families always have a tough time hearing and accepting the news that a love one has been diagnosed with a terminal illness or limited life expectancy.
This can make it stressful for them and the affected individual. If a well thought out plan has not been developed, it can be difficult for families to figure out what to do, how to coordinate care, and how to handle their loved one’s end-of-life affairs.
This is why we recommend that you and your family put a plan in place before there is a diagnosis of a limited life expectancy or terminal illness so that hospice care can be administered right away.
Assisting Hands is here to help with quality hospice care services.
What is End-of-Life Care?
Hospice care is care for individuals with a terminal illness or limited life expectancy. At Assisting Hands, we offer hospice care services to help individuals in the Chicago, IL, area. We care for people in these situations in a way that lets them live their last days with dignity.
Usually, terminally ill patients want to be at home surrounded by loved ones during their final days as opposed to within an assisted living facility or nursing home. But this may put pressure on the family to provide their relative with care themselves. With our hospice care services, we can help by providing an in-home caregiver.
Assisting Hands has well trained, quality caregivers who will guarantee that your loved ones are properly cared for. We create an individualized care plan that caters to the patient’s needs. With our help, family can visit their loved one and take care of other affairs while we provide them with the care they need.
With our home health care services, our goal is to guarantee clients get the care, help, and support they need. We have the same goal with our hospice care services, because we want your loved ones to be at peace during their final days. You can trust our caregivers to provide help, as they have been well trained to be compassionate with the care they provide.
Hospice Care at Home from Assisting Hands — How We Can Help
Before starting the hospice care service, we meet with the client and their family to develop a thorough care plan. We then use the findings from the meeting to provide non-medical help to the patient, ensuring they are comfortable and treated with compassion and dignity. Within our hospice home care services, you can expect the following:
- Personal hygiene assistance: bathing, bathroom use, getting dressed, and more
- Light housekeeping help: laundry, dusting, and more
- Medication reminders
- Preparing meals on a daily basis
- Thorough one-on-one care from a well-trained caregiver
If one of your loved ones has a terminal illness or limited life expectancy, get in touch with Assisting Hands for our hospice care services. We will provide quality, compassionate care for your loved one, allowing them to live their final days in dignity before peacefully passing.
