You may be wondering – What are in home care services? Many people reach a point in their lives in which they realize, as a consequence of advanced age or worsening health conditions, that they may need to start hiring professional help for daily activities. They wish to preserve their quality of life or cope with growing physical limitations, and they would rather not trade the comfort of their homes for the uncertainties of a nursing home or another kind of facility.
That realization is a delicate moment in anyone’s life: losing independence as one ages or is affected by changing health circumstances is always a fearful perspective. It may be a parent, it may be a child with disabilities, it may be yourself who will need in-home support. But what is the right mix of in home care services and how to choose among different care alternatives?

At Assisting Hands, we match experienced aides, carefully selected and trained, to customers who need in-home support. Our first step is simple: we listen to you.
Each individual’s needs are unique and tend to vary over time. They may range from simple daily routines, including light housekeeping, meal preparation and grooming, all the way to complex cases delivered by teams of several professionals collaborating around the clock to attend physically- or mentally-incapacitated individuals.
One client may only need help with her grocery errands and basic housekeeping a few hours a day or only a few times per week. Another may require being reminded of his medication, several times a day, or to be driven to frequent medical appointments. And yet another may demand a complex set of services, delivered according to a comprehensive plan of care designed to match her needs.
