Services for Seniors
In Home Care
Here at Assisting Hands, we believe that the best care is delivered in the most comfortable place — in the home. There’s something to be said for being able to continue to live your life as you did before, just with a little help from a professional home care giver. From children to seniors, anyone with a disability who is in need of a little help, Assisting Hands is here to help.
When it comes to senior care, we know a thing or two. With a significant portion of our clients being seniors, you can be confident that you or your loved one will be well treated, with specific plans catered to their needs.
Long Term Care
Assisting hand offers long term care for those who don’t need constant care, but just need a little help. If you need groceries picked up each week, some errands run, or light house cleaning, long term care may be right for you.
24 Hour Care
For those who need a bit more, Assisting hands offers 24 Hour care for those who need constant care in order to continue living an abundant life. With continued care, day and night, you can be confident that you or your loved one will be safe and watched over by professionals who care.
Just need a little help for a short time? Respite Care is the option for you. Whether you or a loved on has had an accident and needs short-term help while healing, or a time-limited break for families is needed, Respite Care can help.
If companionship is needed, Assisting hands can provide quality care givers who enjoy spending time with others. Everyone needs companionship. Our qualified care givers provide light cleaning services, shopping, and running errands, and of course, companionship. Your caregiver can assist you or your loved one with recreational activities or hobbies, or just provide good company for a game of cards or a nice chat!
A Care Agency You Can Trust
Our caregivers are trained specifically to provide in-home care. They have successfully passed extensive background checks and are insured, bonded, and trained in CPR.
Assisting Hands® will help you select the best match from our pre-screened group of available assistants, and can generally have qualified help placed in your home within 48 hours or less from the initial call.
If memory is an issue, the care givers at Assisting hands have been specially trained to handle Alzheimers and Dementia.
If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with Alzheimers, our staff can help maintain a comfortable lifestyle. By helping with forgetfulness, recalling names, and simple confusion, our care takers will help you or your loved one overcome these challenges.
Dementia, like Alzheimers can be difficult to deal with. Similar to Alzheimers, difficulty recalling names and general confusion is common, but Dementia also can cause anxiety, depression, hallucinations, selfishness, and the disregarding of manners. If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with Dementia, our qualified team at Assisting hands can help.
