Making the decision to get help for a parent or family member can be tough. Sometimes we think we can handle it all by ourselves – along with everything else going on in our lives – but there is nothing wrong with seeking outside help. When you’re faced with the tough decision, it doesn’t need to mean moving your parent or loved one into an assisted living home. For many, seeking outside help for personalized help at home with the assistance of a caregiver agency is the absolute best choice. This choice gives your loved one the independence they need while still being helped with everyday tasks.
Assisting Hands is a caregiver based home care agency which screens, hires and fully trains every one of its employees. We believe that with the right training comes the right care, and this is why we recommend hiring an agency to find the right caregiver. Not only will you ensure that your parent or family member receives the best specialized caregiver, but our healthcare professionals will prepare and carry out a custom plan of care based on your family members’ needs. The caregiver can provide a broad range of assistance from assisting with bathing, toileting, ambulation, grooming, personal care, grocery shopping, meal preparation and cleaning.
Assisting Hands also offers 24-hour emergency medical response times when our caregivers are not present in the home. The medical alert system is PERS – the Personal Emergency Response System, one of the most reputable medical alert systems in use today.
If you think it might be time to get your loved one help, don’t think twice. We offer personalized care and we will work with you and your family to build the care plan that is right for your family member.
