AH Naperville Interview
When friends and family members take it upon themselves to provide care for their loved ones in need, they sometimes sacrifice their own well-being. Richard Ueberfluss, owner of Assisting Hands Home Care of Naperville, IL, was recently interviewed for an article by Chicago Health: Caregiving that discussed the importance of family caregivers finding respite time for themselves.
In the article, Richard talks about the importance of families getting help from caregiving professionals to provide effective care for their loved ones. The caregivers of Assisting Hands Home Care are trained and licensed to handle care tasks that may be difficult for family members to handle, such as physical transfers and assistance with activities of daily living. With more seniors being sent home from hospitals during the COVID-19 pandemic, it is important for families who are overwhelmed to reach out to professionals to help provide home care.
Assisting Hands Home Care of Naperville, IL provides non-medical home health care services, and we are also approved through the VA to provide home care for veterans and their spouses. Those who are eligible for VA benefits can apply those benefits to the following care programs from Assisting Hands Home Care:
- Homemaker program
- Spinal cord program
- Respite program
For each of these VA home care programs, veterans and their spouses must complete an interdisciplinary assessment from a panel that includes a registered nurse (RN), social worker (SW), and medical doctor (MD). They must also show significant cognitive impairment and need assistance with 3 or more activities of daily living (ADLs).
