Relieving family caregivers, as well as assisting professional healthcare providers.
NAMPA, Idaho (December 10, 2014) — Thanksgiving may be one of the few days a year when your entire family gets together or you make that trip to your parents’ house and catch up on everyone’s health and happiness. Especially if your parents are aging, it’s not unusual for alarm bells to go off as you wonder if they’d benefit from a little, or a lot, of assistance. The biggest questions are: How can I help? Where do I start? Who can I trust to help me get my parents what they need and help keep them active and healthy?
Assisting Hands Home Care is part of a national partnership with ActiveForever Medical Equipment & Device Innovations. This partnership has been designed to offer a total solution for families dealing with almost any type of health or safety-related caregiving need for loved ones. The two companies have worked very hard together to come up with a print catalog, free to family and professional care providers, who might be in search of equipment, devices or services that can help keep someone safe, healthy and happy, while dealing with a medical challenge.
“The holidays are a time to celebrate family, but also a time to evaluate the needs of aging loved ones,” said Assisting Hands Home Care Corporate Executive Officer Lane Kofoed. “By partnering with ActiveForever, we help ensure family members have the support they need through compassionate and qualified caregivers and equipment to improve their quality of life and safety at home.”
“This 24-page resource was designed to help get some tough conversations started among family members,” said ActiveForever’s chief outcomes officer, Erika Feinberg. “The devices in our catalog improve personal safety and can mean more people returning home after a stay in the hospital versus being discharged to a nursing home.”
Certified care professionals at Assisting Hands can help you navigate through that tough caregiving conversation you might need to have with your family. Assisting Hands will bring the catalog resource and their home care evaluation expertise to you at no charge.
