Hospice care describes the care received by the patient who has been diagnosed with limited life expectancy or terminal illness.
Discovering that your loved one has limited life expectancy can be unbearable. It can even be difficult to decide what to do once you receive the news. The best action to take in these situations is to keep them comfortable in their own home.
Assisting Hands Home Care provides hospice care services in Elmhurst, Villa Park, Lombard, IL and the surrounding areas for patients with terminal illnesses or limited life expectancies. Each of our caregivers is background-checked, trained, licensed, and insured with our hospice care agency to provide complete peace of mind when providing hospice care assistance.
End of Life Care
Deciding how to move forward knowing that your loved one is living their final days can be highly stressful. Family caregivers especially may be struggling after having spent so much time with their loved one.
In these situations, it’s best to have a hospice care plan in place before the patient is diagnosed so that everyone can be prepared. This is surely a sensitive topic for everyone, which is why it must be discussed with empathy. It’s also best to have the loved one’s will expressed in writing so the care plan can be carried out according to their wants and needs.
Hospice Care Services
As soon as we receive your request for hospice care assistance, Assisting Hands Home Care will schedule a free consultation to discuss your loved one’s needs. We will then develop a home care plan customized to fit these needs and assign a trained caregiver to provide the hospice care assistance.
While our hospice care services include everything from medication reminders and light housekeeping to meal preparation and personal care, our care services mean much more. Our hospice caregivers aim to establish a sense of companionship with your loved one. We want to ensure that their final days are spent feeling happy and comfortable in their own home, which is why we create a sense of trust from the beginning.
Hospice Home Care
For individuals requiring hospice home care, our caregivers are trained and experienced to provide non-medical care assistance. While the unique needs will depend on the patient, our hospice care services can include any of the following:
- Personal care and grooming, including incontinence care, dressing, bathing, and restroom assistance
- Light housekeeping
- Meal preparation
- Medication reminders
It can be stressful to create a care plan for one who has been diagnosed with limited life expectancy or terminal illness. Our caregivers can ease the stress with assistance around the home.
Assisting Hands Home Care also takes your security and peace of mind very seriously as we only hire caregivers who have passed background checks and ensure to have them trained, licensed, and insured with our hospice care agency.

Allison and team are very caring. During the end stages of my grandmother’s life Allison and team were there for my family. She sent her condolences and showed that she truly cared for my family. Allison and Grace reply back to phone calls immediately and are always happy to answer any questions. I would recommend their care team to anyone.
