One of the most shocking and troubling things that can occur to a family is learning that a loved one has a terminal illness or limited life expectancy. Once the initial shock wears off, and grief begins to set in, stress often makes an appearance, as well. This is because many do not know how to approach the situation, especially when the affected individual needs specific care and assistance with their day-to-day activities. At Assisting Hands Home Care, we provide hospice care services to guide you and your loved one through this time. Through these services, we handle everything from cleaning up around the house to preparing meals, and more. We offer these services to those in need in Park Ridge, IL.
Special Care Requests
Many individuals have specific requests regarding the type of care they would like to receive. We take this into account when providing our services. We encourage families to hold these discussions before the health of a loved one degrades too far. This is because they may not remember specific care requests as their illness progresses. Nonetheless, we always work with trusted friends and family members to determine the appropriate types of care required.
Our Assisting Hands Home Care caregivers are among the best in the industry at what they do. Before we hire them, they must pass an extensive background check. They are then trained in a variety of in-home care and senior care services before they are allowed to work with any clients. Furthermore, we only hire caregivers that want to make a difference in the life of your loved one. We believe that companionship is a crucial component of any kind of caregiving services, especially hospice care. Our goal is to give your loved one a friend in their final days that can help them live out their life with dignity.
Hospice Care – What We Provide
As we mentioned above, we will address any of the specific care needs of your loved one (assuming they are non-medical needs). We begin by determining these requirements with you and your loved one. We can then provide the following and more:
- Assistance with getting around the home, using the restroom, and similar day-to-day events
- Medication reminders
- Light housekeeping services
- Meal preparation
- Compassionate, one-on-one care
We fully understand how difficult of a time this can be for everybody involved. Family members need to face the reality that a loved one will be leaving them soon, and the affected individual will lose a lot of their independence, and eventually their life. Through our hospice care services, we do everything we can to make this period as painless as possible. To learn more, you can reach our Assisting Hands Home Care representatives at (847) 915-6186. We are proud to assist families in the Park Ridge, IL, area.
