Great spiritual, physical and emotional changes occur as an individual nears the end of a terminal illness, and Caring Hands Matter is here to help you and your family deal with all of them. Hospice care helps both the individual and their family to cope with changing care needs by offering emotional and spiritual support as well as providing palliative care. Caring Hands Matter partners with hospice care services to help families through difficult times. Our caregivers are able to assist patients faced with a life-limiting illness by providing non-medical hands-on personal care which helps to increase their overall quality of life.
We Know What’s Important
We provide personal care services that can be coupled with hospice care services. These are provided in the patient’s home because we understand that those in our care want to spend as much time as possible doing the things they love with the people they love, and home is the most comfortable place to do it. We bring this same philosophy of doing whatever we can to ease discomfort while ensuring that your loved one maintains an excellent quality of life for as long as possible. These priorities guide our care and keep us focused on the things that matter most.
When a Helping Hand is All You Need
Though we offer a wide array of services, it’s important to remember that you need not use all of them. Maybe all you need is a caregiver who can come by the house every so often and provide an extra pair of hands. Even limited visits can help you with housekeeping, meal preparation, laundry and other chores. These tasks are important but take away from the time you can spend with your loved one, so get help with them.
We’ll help you match the right professional caregiver to your needs so you can get just the right amount of help, so that you are comfortable with your decision.

How will I know when it is time to move my loved one into hospice care?
You won’t have to make the decision to move someone into hospice care on your own. The patient’s physician will let you know when it’s time. If you have any concerns, ask them.
The doctor just told us it’s time for hospice. Can I get help with overnight care?
Absolutely. Caring Hands Matter will help you find a caregiver who can help take care of your loved one’s non-medical needs overnight so you can get the rest you’ll need to care for them during the day. If overnight care works well for you, consider hiring live-in care to provide an extra pair of helping hands all the time.
Can you help me find a caregiver who will come and live with us?
We can and we will. We’ll help you determine what type of help you need and then refer you to someone who is qualified to provide it. We’ll make sure we don’t leave you on your own to handle the process of finding a caregiver you and your family can trust. You can count on us to be there helping you every step of the way.
