Finding out that one of your loved ones is terminally ill or has limited life expectancy is news that is never easy to hear. It can be tough to accept and might even cause stress among the family and the affected individual. Furthermore, it can be difficult to handle end-of-life affairs and to coordinate care if there isn’t a plan or will in place. Assisting Hands Home Care is available to help with the hospice care services that we offer.
What is End-of-Life Care?
Hospice care is the care provided to terminally ill patients or individuals with limited life expectancy. With hospice care services in Glenview, IL from Assisting Hands Home Care, individuals diagnosed with limited life expectancy receive the care and assistance needed to live with dignity during their final days.
Usually, terminally ill individuals want to be at home during their final days with family and friends around. They don’t want to be in an assisted living facility or nursing home where they are with people they don’t know well. However, in-home care cannot easily be provided by a family caregiver, but that’s where we can help.
Assisting Hands Home Care employs well-trained, qualified caregivers who will care for your loved ones. We will do whatever needed to ensure they are comfortable and pain-free, using a care plan personalized specifically for your loved one and their care needs. Our services relieve some stress on you and your family and allow time to be spent with your relative or to take care of their end-of-life affairs.
