Hearing that a loved one has been diagnosed with a terminal illness or limited life expectancy is never easy to handle. It can be difficult to accept and cause stress. If there isn’t a plan or will developed, coordinating care and handling end-of-life affairs for your loved one may be tough to do. With our hospice care services, Assisting Hands Home Care can help.
What is End-of-Life Care?
The care that individuals with a terminal illness or limited life expectancy receive is referred to as hospice care. Assisting Hands Home Care provides hospice care services in Northbrook, IL, that provide care and assistance for individuals who have been diagnosed with limited life expectancy. With our services, patients are able to live with a sense of dignity during their final days.
Terminally ill patients usually don’t want to spend their last days in a nursing home or assisted living facility. Rather, they prefer to be at home amongst family and friends. Family members may feel pressured into providing the in-home care themselves, but they may not have the time or resources needed to provide such care. This is where Assisting Hands Home Care can help.
At Assisting Hands Home Care, we have caregivers with proper training who will provide your loved one with the care they need to be comfortable and pain-free. Our caregivers will provide care using a care plan that has been customized just for your relative. With our help, we can alleviate some stress from you and your family, giving you time to be with your loved one and to address any important matters.
Our goal with Assisting Hands Home Care’s home health care services is to make sure our clients have the support and care needed to safely age within the comfort of their own homes. We have the same goal with our hospice care services. We provide terminally ill patients with the care and assistance they need to live their final days comfortably and to peacefully pass at home.
