Home Health Care Services Available For Seniors Needing Assistance
The caregivers at Assisting Hands® can provide support for seniors and other people who need assistance with tasks that they can no longer do themselves conveniently in their own home. There is no need to drive them somewhere or have them move to an expensive senior care facility in order to get senior services.
We have a wide range of home health care services available
Our home health care services range from providing personal care to preparing meals, light household upkeep to companion care and more. Our skilled caregivers can provide the support and assistance your senior loved one needs when they can no longer perform daily tasks around their house.
Your senior loved one is given the freedom of being able to stay in their own home, along with the security of having someone with them. You are given the peace of mind knowing that they are being cared for and are safe.
The caregivers who provide these senior services are carefully screened. Not only have they passed a wide range of background checks, but they are insured, bonded and have gone through a personality profile screening.
Making the right match between caregiver and client
One of the things we pride ourselves on is providing a great match between a senior and a caregiver.
