At Assisting Hands® it is our mission to serve our elderly clients in a comprehensive and compassionate manner. In addition to our caregiving services delivered in the comfort of our client’s home, we believe in coordinating the full spectrum of elder care services available in the community to aid our clients in securing the best possible outcome for their health and well-being.
When a client begins service with Assisting Hands®, a full assessment of needs will be done and a care plan will be implemented to address each of the needs identified. As a part of this process, Assisting Hands® will assist each client in identifying additional elderly care services in their community available through the Area Agency on Aging, Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, Veteran’s Administration, and local Senior Centers. Some of the elder care services Assisting Hands® can help our clients and their loved ones find education and guidance on are:
- Respite hours for family caregivers
- Reverse mortgages
- Advanced directives
- Power of attorney assignment
- Estate planning
- Medicare benefits
- Medicaid waiver options
- Senior social events
We truly value our elderly clients and the importance of providing home and personal elderly care services with dignity and respect. Our caregivers are caring, compassionate people who enjoy helping others and who have that special gift of patience and understanding when dealing with the challenges that sometimes face the elderly. We pride ourselves on our frequent communication with loving family members regarding their loved one’s health status and offer a “We Care” supplemental services program for the family entering hospice.
Navigating through the myriad of elderly care services available in the community can oftentimes be cumbersome and confusing. For help in identifying the best elder care service options for you or your loved one, call your local Assisting Hands® office today and let us ease some of the burden.
