Nurse Guided Home Care

Helping Hand developed Nurse Guided Care in order to properly care for older adults with one or more medical conditions.

Care for Chronic Medical Conditions

Did you know most home care companies have people with little to no medical training complete your assessment and care plan?

As we saw the need for in-home care for multiple chronic conditions grow over time, it also became apparent that the home care industry was ill-equipped to meet those demands. In answer to the growing need for specialty care for people wanting to remain at home, Helping Hand developed our Nurse Guided Home CareSM program.

To properly manage medical conditions, a Registered Nurse will perform a complimentary nursing assessment and develop a care plan. Exclusive to Helping Hand, our Registered Nurses oversee the specialized care and support for specific chronic or end-of-life medical conditions, including Parkinson’s, cancer care, Alzheimer’s, stroke recovery, cardiac, and dementia care.

As the only home care services organization to provide both medical and non-medical care, Helping Hand is uniquely qualified to handle all of your chronic medical needs.

It’s Simple to Get Started – Watch One Daughter’s Story

If you have ever struggled with life decisions for a senior loved one, then you may understand the emotional impact of someone having to leave their home and give up their independence.

Watch one daughter’s story of the emotional weight that was lifted when she found a trustworthy care alternative in Helping Hand. It was simple and easy to get started. Once our highly-trained nurses completed her mother’s initial Free Home Care Assessment and devised a thorough and complete care plan, her mother was able to stay in her home, manage her day-to-day life, and be near things familiar.

The Care Process

Complementary Nurse Assessment

Our first interaction will be a Complementary Nurse Assessment where our Registered Nurse (RN) meets with you to develop a written care plan for our caregivers to follow.

Meet Your Care Team

Next, our Client Care Coordinator will talk with you and your family about our recommended level of care and then select the caregiver that will best suit your ongoing care needs at the agreed upon level.

Ready to Start

Our caregiver will arrive on their first day ready to provide the care that everyone has agreed upon and specifically suited for your requirements.

  • 5 star review  I have worked for Helping Hands for seven years. My job here has been very rewarding and I have had the pleasure of meeting several clients. I would also like to acknowledge my RN director, Marla Gold, she is always available to answer any questions or concerns. Further, we provide home health care services through RN'S, LPN'S, and CNA'S. We also provide 24/7 care if necessary and if you need to go in person to the office you will be greeted by a friendly and caring staff. I highly recommend helping hands for any home health care services.

    5 star review  We were in a tight spot when my dad had a stroke and fell and needed to be hospitalized dand my mother with memory issues needed someone to stay with her overnight.. I was driving to Florida from PA and called Helping Hands. Marla was so sweet and helped me out by getting Jeannette to stay with my mom, until I could get there the next day. I would highly recomment this group if you are ever in need of personal care for a loved one. Thank you.

  • 5 star review  My 92 yr old neighbor has no local relatives, she fell broke her hip and pelvic bones. She spent 5 days in hospital. Due to covid 19 the rehabs were not taking new patients. I got a call from hospital to say she had signed herself out and was going home. This was Thanksgiving Week end. I needed help fast. Lucky to find Helping Hands and Marla. She took over immediately and called her people to start 24 hr. care. Thank you Marla and all your girls who are great.

    thumb Helen Hughes

    5 star review  Our Helping Hand caregiver, on her third night with our mom, saved her life. She is a CNA with good experience and instincts. When things went awry, she recognized the serious issue and took immediate action. She called us in the middle of the night and then stayed with us until help arrived, keeping everyone calm and even moving furniture for a clear stretcher path. As we rushed to the hospital, she stayed and put things back together so Mom's return will be to a comfortable, clean, orderly place. All of this goes so far beyond what we expected and we are so grateful. When Mom is ready to come home, Helping Hand is the first place we will call. We look forward to seeing this amazing caregiver again and also to meeting others who will be needed in addition. We trust Helping Hand to send us highly capable, kind caregivers.

    thumb Nancy

    5 star review  We had Helping Hands Senior services for two weeks following my spine surgery. My rating and recommendation are of the highest possible both from a care and a professional perspective. The staff, from the office personnel to the caregivers, were outstanding in every way. They were punctual, prepared and willing to perform their duties as requested and/or needed. On a scale of 1 to 10, I give them a 20!!

    thumb Mesha Fielder

    5 star review  I am very pleased that I chose Helping Hand Nursing Services for the care of my grandmother. Their integrity and commitment to care make families of seniors completely at ease. I have frequent business trips abroad, but I know that they would look after my granny the way I would have if I was there. Thank you so much for all the help!

    thumb Werner Gill

    5 star review  This agency operates exactly how home care should be! Caring, compassionate staff from start to finish. The nursing director/administrator is wonderful & knowledgeable. I’ve used many services & Helping Hand wins every award from office personnel to the home care employees. Everything we’ve needed, asked for, we’ve received. Information regarding our loved one was explained in great detail in simple terms. We truly could not ask for better services! We highly recommend!
