At Assisting Hands, we offer hospice care services to ensure that your loved one lives their final days in dignity.
Learning that a loved one has a limited time to live is difficult, and it is our goal to help your family through this process.
Our compassionate caregivers can help terminally ill patients with a number of day-to-day tasks. This allows them to remain in the comfort of home and lessen financial costs.
We offer these services to families in need in Harwood Heights, IL, and surrounding areas.
What is End of Life Care?
End of life care, or hospice care, is given to individuals who have been diagnosed with a terminal illness or limited life expectancy. The services are designed to help the diagnosed individual live out their remaining days in dignity, and in a familiar environment.
Instead of relocating to a nursing home or assisted living facility, we help patients remain at home. This is easier on them and their family members. They get to maintain a semblance of control over their lives, while family members are not expected to provide around-the-clock care which allows them to focus their attention on other end of life matters.
How We Can Help
In order to ensure that your loved one is as comfortable and pain-free as possible, we provide customized care based on their needs. To develop this personalized care plan, we will meet with you and your loved ones to go over requirements. We can provide a number of non-medical caregiving services, such as:
- Assistance with personal hygiene (e.g. using the restroom, bathing, getting dressed, etc.)
- Light housekeeping (e.g. dusting, vacuuming, laundry, etc.)
- Medication reminders
- Meal preparation
- General transportation
In addition to the above, your loved one will also benefit from compassionate, one-on-one care. At Assisting Hands, we fully believe in the power of companionship. This means that we take the time to get to know your loved one and connect with them on a personal level.
Additionally, all of our caregivers are trained in CPR and first aid. If an emergency ever arises, we will be ready to take decisive action. Our caregivers are bonded and insured as well. In all, your loved one will be in caring, capable hands.
