At Assisting Hands Home Care, we provide hospice care services for those who have been diagnosed with a terminal illness or limited life expectancy in Evanston, IL and the surrounding areas in Cook county. Our caregivers will provide care to help keep those affected comfortable and pain free so they can live their final days with peace and dignity.
Learning that a member of your family has a terminal illness or limited life expectancy is difficult. Families have to come to terms with the fact that their loved one has limited time left, and they must find a way to provide their loved one with care and handle their other end of life affairs.
It is important for families to have a plan in place before there is a diagnosis of a terminal illness or limited life expectancy. If a family member receives this diagnosis unexpectedly and there is no plan in place, it can make the situation quite stressful. At Assisting Hands Home Care, we can help care for your loved ones in this position with our hospice care services.
What is Hospice Care?
Hospice care is the care that people receive when they have a limited life expectancy or a terminal illness. The purpose of hospice care is to keep the care recipient as comfortable and pain free as possible and allow them to live their remaining days with dignity.
Those who need hospice care usually prefer to receive care in their homes so they can be with their family and friends in familiar surroundings. However, it can be difficult for family members to provide their loved one with care while also trying to manage their end of life affairs and visit with them as much as possible.
Our caregivers can provide your loved ones with hospice care which will allow your family to manage other affairs and visit with your loved ones. Our caregivers will help develop a personalized care plan based on your loved one’s unique needs to help keep them comfortable and pain free. We will always treat your loved ones with compassion and respect so they can live and pass peacefully.
We at Assisting Hands Home Care are committed to providing the very best in-home care so that senior citizens can live safely and comfortable at home. You can expect our licensed caregivers to show that same level of commitment to your loved ones with our hospice care services to keep them as comfortable as possible in their own homes. Our caregivers are highly trained to provide effective care and they will also show your loved ones compassion and respect.

- Help with activities of daily living (ADLs) including bathing, dressing, and restroom use
