My husband and I enlisted the services of Assisting Hands nearly two years ago when we were in town visiting my mother and father for a party. Although we are only 3 hours away, we realized during that visit, three hours was way too far to effectively take care of Mom and Dad. Mom has always taken care of everything for Dad. My father has Parkinson’s disease. It wasn’t until this last visit that my husband and I could clearly see just how badly an extra set of hands was needed for my father’s care. We interviewed three Home Health Agencies and without a shadow of a doubt, the entire family chose Assisting Hands. Not only were they competitive from a price standpoint, they were one of the few companies with the credentials we were looking for. We even met the caregivers who would be working with mom and dad before we had to leave to head home! I talk to Linda (Mom and Dad’s Caregiver) nearly every night and she feels like a member of our family. I haven’t seen Mom and Dad this happy in a very long time. Linda, Mom and Dad, go on outings, the house looks great, mom and dad are well taken care of and my husband and I are actually sleeping at night without worry! I love Assisting Hands and we have sent everyone we know struggling with similar situations to Assisting Hands!
I can’t thank Assisting Hands and their staff enough for stepping in to care for my parents when my wife and I relocated out of state. We had the biggest decision of our lives, accept a job that would be an unbelievable opportunity for my wife, the kids and I, or turn down the opportunity to stay in Ohio with Mom and Dad. My parents were excited for us and the new possibilities our my career decision could give my family, but they were in denial about how much care my wife and I were providing by living a block away. Dad suffered a stroke in 2010 and his physical condition had really limited the things he could do. Mom never had a driver’s license so my wife took them everywhere during the day and in the evenings, I was responsible for transportation. We never minded caring for them; it became second nature for all of us. I saw a commercial for Assisting Hands Home Care and it felt like the commercial and their services were reaching straight out to us! It was as through the stars were aligned and I was meant to see that on TV. It was on a Saturday but I called the number. I couldn’t believe, I actually got a live person who had the ability to come out within a few hours of the call and coordinate a complete plan with all of us. The owner even called me herself later that evening and we talked for almost an hour. We had two weeks to get into temporary housing for my new job yet we had everything figured out within 24 hours. Mom and dad were somewhat resistant but after meeting their caregiver, it was like this was just the way things were meant to be. Although we are further away, wither my wife or myself manages to come up one weekend a month to stay with my parents. They look better than when we were taking care of most of their needs. Although we didn’t know it at the time, I think the stress and large responsibility weighed on all of us when it was my wife and I as the sole care takers and in turn, my parents had so much guilt but knew deep down then needed us. Assisting Hands has given us all peace of mind and comfort in their services! I love the company, love what they do and would recommend their services to anyone who needs the help!
