How We Help Keep Your Loved Ones Safe at Home with a Home Health Aide in New Jersey
Home, tucked into their bed, is where everyone wants to be every night. So many do not realize how many people rely on someone else to do something that seems so simple like taking a shower. An unsupervised or unassisted shower for someone who has an impairment is a huge safety risk and could lead to a major injury.
At Assisting Hands® Home Care, we provide clients with essential non-medical services that assist them with their activities of daily living—like showering—and allow them to remain safe and Happy and at Home™, maintaining their quality of life and dignity.
We serve post-illness, post-operative clients in addition to individuals with Alzheimer’s and dementia or other diseases such as Parkinson’s that limit one’s ability to take care of themselves.
Our services are not just for “older adults.” We provide care for any client in need of assistance. A 20-something recovering from a serious car accident, a 30-something who was diagnosed with cancer, a 40-something who had surgery to repair an old football injury and a 50- something who had a massive stroke are patients who could benefit from home care services.
Our compassionate home health aides, or professional caregivers, can visit clients for a few hours per day several times a week to overnight care or living with them 24 hours a day.
They often notice changes in client status/condition and bring those to the attention of the family and our director of nursing, which helps avoid unnecessary trips to the hospital by taking care of a problem before it becomes an emergency.
We have strict protocols in place to protect our caregivers and patients so everyone stays as healthy as possible.
Professional caregivers enable many families to sleep well at night, knowing someone is with their loved one when they cannot be.
What we do
Bring the world's best in-home care services to you
Caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s can be an extremely challenging experience for families. We believe in using a team approach that includes coordination with doctors, nurses, social workers, therapists and family members.
As a Veteran, you may qualify for in-home care services. We are an approved provider for the VA. Ask your social worker if you may qualify for a home care benefit.
Our comprehensive transitional care program helps ensure that you will remain safely and comfortably in your home when transitioning from a hospital or rehab after surgery or illness.
Agency vs. Direct
Hiring a home care agency can be nerve-wracking and often comes at an unexpected time. The entire Assisting Hands Home Care team is here to help you and answer any questions you may have. We have all used home care at some point for ourselves or our loved ones, so we can provide you with real answers to your questions.
Aging In Place
Mom and dad want to stay in their home and not move into a facility. They want to remain in the home they’ve lived in for decades, continue to shop in local stores and socialize with their friends in the community. This is known as aging in place.
If you or your loved one is finding it difficult to complete everyday tasks like preparing food, standing, or getting out of bed, they can be a fall risk.

Happy Monmouth, Ocean and Mercer Clients
Dieuna won the hearts of both my father and stepmother. After my stepmother passed, my father welcomed her familiar presence in his life. Our family knew we could depend on her and she always had my father’s best interest at heart. She would quietly tell me of any concerns she had as his health declined. Through the years my family has known Dieuna, she has always been kind, considerate and professional. She has given us confidence that my father was being looked after by someone who cared about him
