Most users of non-medical home care services are seniors with varying degrees of in-home support for their activities of daily living, ranging from light housekeeping to assistance to individuals severely impaired by Alzheimer’s disease or bedbound. But they can also be children and younger adults with disabilities, or individuals of any age who are recovering from surgery or other medical procedures.
If a loved one’s condition – or yours – requires permanent medical supervision, medication management, wound care or the direct involvement of a nurse or doctor, then you need skilled support, provided by other kinds of agencies or by healthcare facilities. That specialized service may be complemented by Assisting Hands’ non-medical home care support at home or in a facility. It is important to bear in mind that any medical procedure and drug administration must be performed by a qualified professional.
Currently, the Assisting Hands units in Pennsylvania do not provide skilled services. For all other forms of non-medical home care support, in any combination of our available services, we provide professional care tailored to each client’s specific needs.
If your health circumstances suggest that you need the support provided in a specialized facility, such as a nursing home or independent-living facility, the information provided on this website will not necessarily address what you may be looking for. All the same, our nursing and customer-relations teams would be glad to discuss some of your options and maybe guide you to reliable information sources or suggest providers you may wish to consider.
And here comes an important disclaimer. We do not accept any form of financial rewards to refer other businesses. It is a company policy anchored in our beliefs about business ethics. If we refer an organization that may be able to address your needs, it is because of their reputation or our clients’ past experiences with them.
