Information about Hands with Hearts
Along with the New Year's Eve bash and requisite New Year's Resolution comes a progression in life for all of us. For some, another year older, means closer to dreams and opportunities. For others, like some of our clients, it means a progression in their need for help or support. For Hands with Heart, it means more opportunities to help still more members of our community. To be able to be a support team for even more families and to provide that connection and engagement to enrich the lives of those whose lives we are able to touch. Our Care Teams work with your family, to ensure that your loved one has the help, support and compassionate care that they need to be safe in their home or living environment & to enrich their lives through our caring interaction. We will help make long days shorter, and long nights fuller. We will be the overnight support you might need to get a good night's sleep - or be the grocery & lunch stop, that allows you to know that your loved one will have a hot meal and fresh groceries in the fridge. We are able to get your loved one out to lunch - or the casino with friends; as well as safely transporting them to their doctor or hair appointments. Hands with Heart is able to be a support to keep your loved ones in their homes longer, or to be that extra touch they need while making a transition to a supported care living environment or full care facility. If your loved one is in need of some help, support or interaction - give us a call and allow us to take care of your loved one in our community!
With Christmas just a couple of days away, the Hands with Heart team is busy being Santa's Little Helpers. We are decorating trees, assisting with finding presents, bringing in the groceries for your Christmas dinner and cleaning and polishing the house for the holiday crowds...
More importantly though, we are keeping many of our community members safe in their homes; assisting with making sure they have meals; helping out with getting them out and about for their doctor or hair appointments; and simply checking in to see that they have some company. It is through this interaction that we are making sure that our clients are staying physically strong and mentally engaged. We do this by visiting with them, playing cards or just asking them to tell us about their lives. For many in and around the Antigo area, we are able to be this support and the care team that becomes an extension of family for our clients.
As our Thanksgiving Day approaches, I would like to extend a deeply heart-felt "Thank YOU!" to all of the families and community members who have allowed us into their homes, and into their lives to assist, to help and simply to care! It is often difficult to allow someone to help, and even harder to allow someone to help when it means that you are no longer "able" to do the things you have always done... It is with great care and sensitivity that we are coming in to people's homes and with great love that we work with our clients to support them in the things that might be a challenge as they are aging or as a disability or illness progresses. Our philosophy of trying to keep all of our clients as active and self-sufficient as they can possibly be, and then to be the support behind the scenes to ensure that they are still able to sustain the life that they want to live is the heart behind our hands that help. We work to keep our clients safe, healthy and active and we are so grateful for the opportunity to continue this care and expand our client base in the Antigo and surrounding communities! We thank each of clients, their families and friends, especially at the holidays for allowing us to be the Hands with Heart that are taking care loved ones in our community...
